IOTD: SnowDiggers VS Battle
SnowDiggers VS Battle, by Torbjörn Josefsson
Yo! This is meant to be a frantic 2-player puzzer-race - inspired by Ice Climber and Bould Dash, where players can sabotage for eachother
2 players are caught in an avalanche, and both try to win the game by getting first to the surface - about 3 screens of climbing through the debris! The 'camera' follows the player who is the closest to the surface, and if the other player is so far behind that he doesn't show on the screen anymore, the leading player wins
Metal blocks are immovable obstacles, round things (stones, barrels) fall down ala Boulder Dash. Ice blocks and other movable things can be pushed.
Snow can be moved by picking up a piece of it from either side, above or below, but can only be placed to the side, and will fall downwards if there is nothing below it.
If a player is hit by something falling, or is damaged in some other way, he/she falls down to the closest empty space below his/her current position.
Players can jump at a height of approximately two blocks.
-There should be a playable version of this in about a week - and then I mainly need to polish it a bit, and get ideas for things to make available to the players to mess with eachother
