Hi Che.

to be honest I don't mind the restarting post death business myself, ---- not with the damage factor and the amount of health you have, pluss the plentiful supply of healing potions.


On Monti, i felt this became a trifle unbalanced due to the lack of said potions, but sinse Mota seems more generous, survival ---- even when taking hits can simply be a matter of resource management.

As to comparing Mota to other side scrollers, ---- well remember Marrio brothers and the necessity to complete half a level on only two hits, ---- or games like Prince of persia which required you to complete a very long level with lots of exploration, and dying would mean starting the level again.

while I grant computer games of the 80's and 90's were probably more difficult, so I might have a different idea of difficulty to a first time gamer, with a game like Mota with a finite level structure, being too easy is I think a danger,----- which is why I was concerned about the ducking enemy's floor.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.

Subject: [Audyssey] MOTA starting over when you die, was:Re: Tomb Rater


 HI guys,
First of all, could you guys please try to follow some list etiquette and specify your subject lines to what you are talking about? There is a ton of traffic on here about the game, and I don't care to read through 50 messages about ridiculous torch suggestions to get to something that merits actual discussion. I'd say the majority of the messages of late have nothing to do with subject line other than being about MOTA. A little consideration here would go a long way, thanks. Regarding starting over, I think it is a lot to ask the beginning accessible game player to work through the entire level again each time they die on arcade beginner mode, wouldn't it be enough to start them one room back from where they died? Even on the old side scrollers of my youth, you didn't have to start over at the beginning if you died in most cases. But then, I'm old, lol.
later
che
