if you were chosen to be the one to create an all new enemy (or object) in n, what would it be and why?
please include a roughish sketch of it.

Hmm... interesting idea for a thread.
Umm.. thought about this the other day, what about simply a "boulder" object? Not gonna sketch it. Just any sort of round object, that could roll, and be moved by anything that moves the ninja (floor, walls, doors, one-ways?). Also, could be resizable (1-tile, 4-tile, 9-tile) maybe? Just thought it could be useful. Also, could kill the ninja if it's dropping or rolling fast enough. (Ndiana Jones? What?)

Hm
Nice thread
probably I would add an underwater element to N...that'd be way cool
And then I'd have torpedos
Underwater would be so cool imo

Well, since you said, "or object": I would create "negative gold"; in other words, you actually have to avoid it, or you lose two seconds.

There's an nreality mod that does that, but it's a drone.

Teleporting drones.
Like seeker, except more challenging. Using hefty code changes, you could make it teleport to within 5 tiles away from you, etc etc.

i would make a multiplying zap drone, where if it ate 5 pieces of gold (or it was hit by another drone) it would split into 2 drones.

Shotgun Drone. Basically a chaingun drone, but a shorter attack sequence, less range and much more spread (although the bullets move slower, so the ninja can dodge them more reasonably). Would lead to some interesting encounters, especially in tunnels :)

Kablizzy Drone.

I think I suggested a freeze drone in the old thread in the Olde Forums.

i would make one that would happily doddle around and explod into colorful bursts of mildly distracting light that cannot harm you.

i would also make a rolling drone. normal zap-drone shape, but it just rolls along quickly on any surfaces and it bounces off the ground and kills you at contact.

i would also make a floating platform. the most stereotypical object commonly found in mario games. you should all know what it does.

i would also make a drone that was harmless itself, but could leave behind a trail of no more than 3 mines at a time with an undecided distance between each mine.



and so it goes, and so it goes, and so will you soon i suppose.

I would make a litter drone, that drop sticky green goo that slows down the ninja and makes it smell bad for a week.

Mortar cannon.

When it sees you, a target appears around where you were (looks like the aura of the alarm drone from NReality), showing where it will hit and its blast radius. It does this on the very first frame it sees you, with a cooldown of 1 second.

One second after the target is marked, there will be an explosion in that exact area, killing you if you're in its blast radius.

It's a cannon, so it doesn't move.

thats not what im saying. i dont want more drones, i want more old-school type tileset possibilities. who wouldnt love 3 E tiles stacked like so: [ ][ ][ ] that float left to right or up to down at a steady, manageable pace? its genius! imagine having to avoid dangerous drones and mines while trying to time your jump enough so that you can get across the giant cavern. its brilliant! it ranks up there with saving princesses and fighting bosses if you ask me.

I like Eganic's idea about the platform. it could also be used as a vertical elevator.

Definitely a tank drone.

Oh, wait, it's been done.

In that case, a Mine Drone. Like a chaingun drone, but it fires mines that arcs at a fair speed across the screen, then lands on a tile. Once it touches a tile, it's stuck there.

Burst cannon.
It's a black cannon, that burst a shock wave towards you. The frame it sees you, it starts a fast bursting. It has burst radius of 6 squares. Tiles will stop the bursting.

Shock cannon.
Like Burst cannon, except white, and instead of 6 square radius of killing burst, it has 7 square radius of shocking radius (stops you for 3 seconds).

Door mods
A door that stops thwumps and floorguards, but drones and ninjas can go through it. Oneway for drones, locked door and trap door that doesn't stop drones.
