Action Arcade!!! ;D
« on: February 05, 2007, 09:32:00 PM »

Yep, you read that right, It's rubicon... Generation X! I created the very first action arcade level at hoticix
Grin Cool Grin Cool Grin Cool Grin Cool Grin Cool Grin Cool Grin Cool Grin Cool Grin Cool Grin Cool Grin Cool Grin Cool Grin Cool Grin Cool Grin Cool
BTW, don't post your solutions yet, I want everyone to figure it out themselves.
Maybe someone can make a scrolling shooter? That would be sweet Grin

Nice one.
By the way, you're not the first with such a puzzle. There is at least one puzzle posted before that has the same kind of solution. And that one is harder!

That was fun! At first glance, I had no idea what to do, but then the answer just popped into my head! I loved it. (Them)

Unsolveable.  Eventually, two blocks will come in the wrong formation.

new one:nylylas: fast reaction
I guess it would be hard to create a real scrolling shooter like space invaders or raiden X because you only have one key to work with. Maybe you could do pong, with old physics=left and new physics=right, but the bouncing ball would be very impossibly hard to implement.

The basic machine for action arcade:sipusuf
When P is on the old setting, it goes right, otherwise it goes left. There's also a nice little puzzle for choosing which crate to put there, but it's rather easy.

imageIt's a odd variant on sufebub.  I'd recommend doing that one first.
Furtherimage, it makes use of an odd feature mentioned on the front page.

imagesufebeb was the original.  If you've solved any of them, you know why it's Action Arcade.
