Milestone 2 Design Document/Enemies
This page shall describe all enemies, old and new, in as much detail as possible. We also need to settle down on proper names for enemies, since currently there is a lot of confusion.
Snowball / Sport Snowball
Snowball is a straight forward falking enemy, when reaching an edge he will fall down and continue walking on the platform below. Jumping on him will squish him and thus kill him.
Mrs Snowball / Stay-On-Platform Snowball / Smart Snowball
Mrs Snowball behaves like a normal snowball, but instead of walking of a platform she well turn around when reaching the edge.
Like Snowball MrIceBlock is a simple straight forward enemy, he will not stay on platforms. When jump on he will get knocked out and become a grabable item that one can use to throw at other enemies.
Again a very basic enemy, but unlike the Snowball he doesn't walk around in a straight pattern, but walks forward and backward around a fixed position. It is a stationary enemy.
Replace it with something that better fits the snow world
Star shall get replaced by a starfish. (does that even make a graphical difference?)
Already in the code, but not much used in Milestone1 Levels
A flying enemy that can land on trees and carry things around to throw at Tux.
Like Angry Stone, but with iceworld theme.
The canon can be mounted on either static or rotatable pedestal. It shoots angry looking snowballs.
The current Yeti pattern needs to be reworked, since it is to easy to just stand in a corner and do nothing.
Alternative: Sequence at end of castle: Tux find Yeti, Yeti jumps out of the window and flees
The Eater is a very small enemy, half the size of a snowball, he can however expand a lot. If Tux gets to close to him the Eater will open his mouth wide enough that he can devour Tux or even other badguys. He his not defeatable by jumping onto him, since he will then just eat Tux. Throwing stuff at him won't work either, since again he will just eat them.
