I can't help but wonder, when you touch a drone, the zap sound effect, is it retriggering the sound every single frame that you touch? Because often it makes a really loud, clipped, bassy, distorted blast of flatulence. Feature or bug? It's not a huge deal, but of the entire game presentation, this is the only thing that really sticks in my craw sometimes. Almost like the game is using audio to troll you. I think it would be better if the sound could only trigger like twice a second, though I don't know how easy that would be as I don't know how the sound engine is coded.

A similar thing happens when you hit multiple stacked switches or evil ninja portals. There's a lot of clipping and it's excessively loud. I'm not sure exactly how you could solve this, as I doubt there's a way to limit multiple triggers of the same sound on one frame. All very technical. Am I the only one that finds this a bit grating sometimes?

One of those "it's on the list but we can't be bothered fixing it, maybe later" bugs. https://app.assembla.com/spaces/npluspl ... ickets/378
