Stompy an adventure game???

I'm thinking that I should try to make Stompy2 a game that you can actually beat, rather than it just being an endless shooting fest(although I don't see the problem with that[smile]).

My thought is that the game starts off on the bottom floor of a lab building, and Stompy must fight his way up to the top floor. You get to the next floor by getting to the stairs. I think this would make the game more interesting to play over a traditional arcade game.

Any thoughts? Is this a good idea?

Yeah. Having actual levels in a game makes it a lot more interesting and designing levels is quite fun.

The old Castle of the Winds duology made excellent use of randomly-generated levels with the use-the-stairs concept. I think the approach works quite well and should adapt nicely to Stompy.

Ok, I'm going to get started working on it.

This also leads to something I've wanted to do in Stompy for awhile, bosses[evil].
