In Response To: Re: Finished the last chapter (Forrest of B.org)
: Also, instructions for this level were at the end of the previous level: go
Hmm, maybe some maps in the terms would help, like, not give too much away, but have a picture of a key area or two and a line that says something about possible malfuntions, just to make it more clear. It could be that my readiong comprehension is low =)
: Hmm invisible projectiles is odd, I've not seen that. Are they invisible like
I guesse it's like the sprite is missing. There isn't any hint of a projectile untill you get hit. It took me a while to figure out what was going on.
: Also, again, are you using the blades? Dive into the melee! Though on higher
The biggest problem is the number of headless. They can completly fill those small hallways with projectiles, and each one is pretty damaging. And since some of those halls are both long and narrow, you've got no place to dodge. It is cool when you can wade through them, the blades definitly rock, but it's when you can't that it gets ugly. The biggest problem I think is the lack of safe ground. It really helps (me anyway) to have a place to sit and look at the map and think. The exploding nightmares arn't much of a problem as far as killing you goes, but they can be really confusing cuz they'll throw you around into other ouchie things and blind you and stuff. It can add to the experiance, but it can also get you killed fast. Maybe if they didn;t all explode. Also, killing hunters with the blades is a pain, cuz they'll explode, with far more hurty than the nightmares.
: Also also, like Deep Into The Grotto, the mission was explained at the end of
Well, the warning depends on how you want to inturprent the game. Does the charactor know that he's flooding the place, or is he running around randomly hitting switchs and seeing what happens? Having no warning makes you think real fast, but having a warning seems more realistic.
I somehow missed reading any terminal in deep into the grotto. I read hathors message, but when I smashed the thing, I crossed where the force feild was, than rembered the terminal, but the feild was still there! I'm thinking now I got to the circuts via a bug, so there's that to look into.
: I'm considering making it so you can't just jump down from the top, but have
I jumped out of both points and walked from the door, returning each time, just to kill everything that might get in my way in the first half of the level. If you couldent jump out from near the elevator, you might not know about it. Personally, I really like having a few different ways to aproach the beginning, but being forced to walk wouldnt be bad, it'd just be different.
: Maybe I should raise the rim of the hole on the door side, so you can't just
That's probably be good.
: Also, NOTE TO SELF: create a diagram of the Mount Point for a terminal pic.
: (The idea is supposed to be like Fist-of-God mountain from Ringworld: a
Yeah, I remeber you telling me that a wahile ago. Having a diagram would definitly be good.
: The exit term is where the missing epilogue text is supposed to go (see
Ohhh, pretty pictures!
: Thanks again for great feedback Blake! :-)
