@x19: Sorry but even after that extensive research you gave me I still have no idea what game it is. It definitely isn't Tomba, since I love the Tomba series and would know if that were the game I was talking about. It's quite possible that it could be a combination of my memories of wild 9 and tekken. I'm still not sure, that's the only conclusion I can think of for now anyway. On the bright side, I remember playing wild 9 a lot, completely forgot about that game so thanks for reintroducing me to it.
