I am trying to animate sprites like metal slug bosses.

But they can't be animated as regular and squared sprites because the have multiple moving parts at same time.

Considering i am talking about arcade games, frameworks like spine and mecanim did not exist in that time.

I am seeking for techiques to do that, but only found examples animating simple sprite sheets.

Does somebody know how was it done ?
