So, I also play a game called King Arthur's Gold. I decided to make a mod for it with a friend of mine, which is about Cave Story. So here's the thing:
We use only the original game graphics in the main stuff, but we have some things that are from Cave Story +. Specifically, we are using the health bar from Cave Story +, but the health bar in Cave Story + is just an upscaled version of the original. Are we allowed to use it then? (We don't mind replacing it with the original, but we're just curious)

Use the original. Just to be safe.

You can upscale the original yourself though. That solves all problems.
