Blockade and Trigger

Posted by Rachel On November - 30 - 2011

We made some sketches for blockades but spikes seemed like the best choice since most player refer to this as ‘danger!’.

The harder part was designing the trigger/switch which lets the player pass the spikes. We’ve been experimenting with a lot of ideas…

After a lot of ideas we realized that the we needed a trigger that was accessible from four sides, not just two like most of the design were. It would make making levels incredibly hard if a switch could only be activated when a player enters that tile from the North or South.

The trigger needed to be flat so that ships can fly over it. So we came up with a simple button shape. Sometimes simple is the best way to go.
