[2-Aug-13] Arena Feature: Ba-Dunk Ba-Dunk

Recommended Posts

During yesterday's "Design with the Devs", we level designers at The Behemoth pitted three excellent Arena playlists against each other, survival of the fittest style.

Shocking twist: we were the ones who didn't survive. Hurray for respawns!

And the results?

Well, arrivederci (or should that be "Arenaderci"?) to "Mix n Mash", and say hello "test 2"!

 

Playlist: test 2

Designer: EC Nebur


Even if the playlist name wasn't a dead give away, it was quite clear to us that EC Nebur had put this playlist through its paces, testing these levels into a thick lather, and then rinsing and repeating. And because of that, Ol' Neb didn't only deliver a playlist full of cool new ideas, but they were delivered with a glossy, thick coat of polish as well.

Take, for instance, this auto-dodge-ball-chucker in the middle of this Ball court.

Without overwhelming the player with a tidal wave of spiky/burny death, this level changes up the way you'll play, especially if you and your teammate are ball-passing pros.

Another favorite of ours was this stairway of acid bubbles, as not only could it be used when slam dunking, but with a well placed slam it was the perfect way to melt your opponents hands right off of the ball!

And here's an idea I've been kicking myself for not thinking of myself: Duckshark goalies! Adding a bit of a timing requirement to your shots, this combo is subtle but full of refreshment. Just add fans!

Now get to dunking while the dunking's good you lunks!

These maps are very different then what they had before. The last pictured map is definitely the hardest. I can never tell when the fans are on or not!

Looks like a well-done fake to me.

Yea, its fake. Notice how the "Free with purchase" is too dark around the edges and doesn't look right. Pretty cool looking though :/
