midair flip concept level
« on: August 20, 2018, 12:30:36 PM »
helo coralized discovered you can make viridican't flip in midair by spawning entity 0 (duplicate player entity) inside a box

WARNING: entity 0 persists across rooms and levels and theres no known way to despawn it without restarting the game

with that said i made a concept level based on this gimmick

Pretty cool, albeit a bit short.

A part of The New Adventure from (a level from May 2017) used that gimmick, but because clone-Viridian was trapped in a wall, Viridian could only midair flip while upside down. (I just instructed people to save and load at the end of the section, because you can't despawn it. (I know, terrible level design, forcing people to do something or else the level breaks.))

it's not terrible level design if youre running up against a game limitation. things like pressing r and invincibility can be worked around, but theres literally no way to despawn entity 0
