VVVVVV gravitron suggestion
« on: May 12, 2012, 08:21:52 pm »
I was playing on the super gravitron (after spending a minute in the naughty corner of course) when I realised how annoyed I got whenever the bounce of viridian was slightly out of time with the music, and it got me thinking.

What if, after every time you die, viridian waits before jumping in again, to make him bounce in time to the music? This may be just too much time spent on bit.trip runner, but I genuinely think it could work. Thoughts, anyone?  :viridian:

Potential for anything = win

So I support this idea.  :viridian:

Would be nice, but can they possible be in sync at all?

Sadly, I'm pretty sure that Viridian doesn't bounce in time with the music - I can't really remember but it's slightly faster or slightly slower. It's really pretty close, but after several dozen bounces it does really get off rythm even if you don't die!

I'm not really sure if it does go out of time - my record is only 16 seconds  :'(

If it does eventually go out of sync, is it not ridiculous to suggest Terry might be able to shift the boundaries slightly closer/ further away? The only problem might be making the gravitron itself easier or harder, thus mucking up everyone's records

Yeah that would be too drastic of a change I think!
