It could be like that old NES game StarTropics if anybody on list has ever heard of it. There were a lot of elements taken from Indiana Jones and similar stories, arrow traps, spontaneous earthquakes that you had to jump to get away from and, in pride of place, an invincible enemy called a Megaton. This was basically little more than a giant bowling ball that had its own corridor to itself and would roll up and down the hall when you got to it, obviously trying to crush you. And of course unlike a lot of the other traps, which would just hurt you if you touched them, touching a Megaton meant instant death, sort of like those earthquakes I mentioned earlier. The trick was to move along the hall and hide in little alcoves that were spaced along the wall. There were only three Megatons in the entire game and the third of them was actually inteligent to a degree, not to mention fast. That meant that you couldn't just run and hide from it and actually had to strike it with your weapon when it got close to you, which would freeze it in place momentarily and give you a chance to get away. But I imagine something like that might be hard to render in audio alone.

Rolling boulders? Hmm. Sounds like fun! Then again, I just hate getting that run down feeling, or the situation of being between a rock and a hard place. (grin) Although I can't wait till the game comes out, I will. I know it'll be good and worth the wait. I also know that the testers will have fun while helping to make a great addition to the blind computer gaming community. Then, once you get past this one and Raceway, and start supplying us with your own creations, hopefully as you envision them, we'll be blown away, and come back for more.

Hi Nicol,
Yes, on some of the higher levels there will probably be rolling boulders in the game. It is just another detail, trap, etc I haven't gotten around to adding yet. Level 1, with all do respect, is just a preview of the game. It is not meant to be representative of every type of enemy, trap, etc you may find in the game.

Hi tom
Do you plan to add roling bolders to mota?
It would be fun to try escape a roling bolder.
I think a  good sound for a roling bolder is a sound similar to the
sound  in ten pin alley, the sound of the ball rolling to  the pins.
I do not expect you to use the sound  in ten pin alley but a simular
sound would rock. Please Note: This email and its contents are subject to our email legal notice which can be viewed at http://www.sars.gov.za/Email_Disclaimer.pdf
