Feedback movement code

Recommended Posts

I like the game a lot, but please please tweak the movement code. Especially the ladder/rope speed is way too slow. It can be very tedious to climb ladders and ropes. If you know what you have to do and just need to get from A to B fast it is very unnerving to navigate through the levels (ie. Mine level). This gets worse with every playthrough.


- Make climbing ladders at least 70% faster.

- Minimize the pause between two jumps on ladders, so that I can get up really fast if I want to.

- Let me jump up on ropes, too.

- Remove the pause when I drop down a ladder, before I can drop down again.

- When I drop to the last rung of a ladder which is directly above the ground, don't keep me on the ladder.

- Tweak the aircontrol factor, so that I can better move in mid air.

- Make running speed 20% faster, maybe add a sprint key.

Although these changes would make the game "less realistic" I guess they would make a lot of sense to make the Jump'n'Run part of the game less frustrating and a lot more fun. To get it out of the way of the actual riddles.

When I remember correctly Ron said in an interview that the Jump'n'Run part was there to ease the tedious walking from A to B plaguing classic point n click adventures. Would be nice to see those changes.
