I played the demo of Tomba one when I was a kid, all I remembered were pigs and thought the character was one until I saw a pic recently lol.
Saw some gameplay and I cant see him having a very interesting moveset.
He had a huge amount of different weapons/items to use. I thought the games were fun, personally; he has about as much worth as Sir Dan or Parappa being in the game. --- Don't know the answer; resonance!
