Clucking Dubbed to Feath(ers) - on /idgames! - A Flying, Super Chicken Map

Recommended Posts

Haha, this is so silly. I love it. I didn't kill anything except the Sabreclaws and that one Gargoyle guarding the third switch, but I had fun flapping around like a chicken with its head cut off until I figured out how to escape. It'd be interesting to see how many enemies I could actually take out by dogfighting, but it seemed really risky. A cool little locked-room puzzle map.

Heh, that's a pretty cool map. Can't say I've ever been a flying chicken in idtech1 before.

Hey thanks for playing y'all; I'm glad it sounds like you both had fun with this silly little map!

This reminds me, I forgot to mention it in the OP but I half-way did difficulty settings for this map; I say half-way because I wound up making (the equivalent of) HNTR the same as UV so that people could get the """full""" experience while under the reduced pressure of taking half damage and because while this map isn't too bad to max in UV (or HNTR by the same token), getting easier of course with patience and infighting, maxing BPPT is at best tedious with some rng-dependencies and at worst unrealistic since so many things can kill you in 2 shots and you only have space for 9 items of each type without requiring the player to turn human to pick up more. Probably it would be best for BPPT maxing to alternate between chicken and human as much as possible for the extra health while infighting, (getting the golems to turn other enemies into chickens), and saving as many time bombs for the lich as possible. This all also makes the HMP-equivalent the technical "easy" difficulty, although I actually find liches easier to kill as a chicken than disciples, minus the use of eggs and time bombs, so maybe a small wrinkle in there.

 

I will say in general though that the shadowsphere is not meant to be used in the most obvious place. Second-most obvious place tho ;D
