I do find such questions pointless, as C2 can do almost any 2D type game - the limitation is in the person undertaking the process.

It would also help if you provided a link to whatever it is you are referring to. In this case, a quick Google showed me a link to an early Youtube prototype, and also highlighted your incorrect spelling.

From what I can see, I can't see why you would even bother asking if it's possible, as it looks quite simple to me.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

RPGs are often engines on engines. So there is a level of programming that does the graphics, interface etc. and built on top of that is a second level which controls the flow of the game itself.

But basically, yes. C2 struggles a bit with complex object hierarchies and data structures, but it's not really designed for that sort of thing. Something like this may benefit from code in an app-specific plugin for example.

Yes it's possible. You'll have to pay careful attention to z-ordering and collisions. Leveling systems are no big deal so long as you plan and make a good algorithm. It's just a lot of small systems combined into something bigger. If you aren't familiar with the idea of a state machine, you should research that too.
