Competition #20
« on: January 16, 2011, 08:58:01 am »
Competition Idea

The idea of this competition is to create a puzzle from Elevators and ground buttons(those floating stones at the pictures). You must use the elevators or ground buttons in your puzzle.  You can decide how many elevators and puzzles you have. The puzzle will be added to chapter 6.

MAP:

Hints

- The pictures and the map are just examples.
- Maximum of three stages for each eleveator can be added and I cannot change that.
- Ground buttons have only two stages: shining and not shining. I cannot change that.
- You can reduce or increase the amount of elevators. In that picture there's 9x9 stones.
- Try not to make the puzzle too hard for me to create or I have to rely on other map makers.
- How can the player change their height?
- How the player can complete this puzzle?
- Try to make the puzzle hard, but not impossible.
- Less elevators and ground buttons, easier for me.
- You can only use ground buttons too if you don't like espers.
- I have also attached the map to here if somebody want to look at it.
- You can also create the puzzle by yourself if you have time in the world editor.




Competition Rules

- The idea have to be yours.
- You can make unlimited amount of entries.
- I will have all the rights to edit the rules all the time(I will do it correctly and I will be fair for everyone).




Competition Prizes

The winner of this competition will have his or her name to Hall Of Fame and will be credited as "Competition Winners" and "Idea Giver". If you have one more than once you'll be credited automatically as "Great Idea Giver". Also any other ideas that I'll use will be credited as "Idea Giver".



Judging

I'm the only one who will judge the winner of the competition. I will judge all entries. The amount of entries you post will not decrease your chance to win in any way. However, if there are a lot of entries or horrible entries, I'll have the right to kick some of them away in order to make the final judge easier for me.



Deadline

The competition begins immediately and conclude Sunday 23/1/2011.



Final Words

Good luck, may the best idea win. If you have questions, ask.

Um.... actually I am not intending on joining this competition, as creating puzzle is one of the thing that I don't know what to make most, but seeing that no one joined the competition, I guess I just join the competition and post my idea. So here goes:

Quote
First level: The first level is just simple, from time to time, some of the platform will rise and some of the platform will sink, and to get to the second level, you will need to reach or step on a shining platform that is located at the end of the puzzle.

Second level: In the second level, it is just the same as the first level, but instead of just the rising and sinking platform, most of the platform has color on them, and different color has different effect when the unit step on them. For example, bright red which symbolizes fire, if stepped on the bright red colored platform it will deal heavy fire damage to the unit standing on it (preferably 400-800). Light blue which symbolizes ice, will freeze the unit in place completely until the end of the level, which forces player to use his other hero to continue and complete the puzzle, for example, player uses Phodom to attempt to complete the puzzle, but stepped on a blue platform and is frozen in place, making Phodom useless now and forces to use Fradz or Galeoth to attempt to complete the puzzle.

Third and final level (optional): As I think this part might be impossible to complete, so it is just optional. The point is, it is just the same as level two, where some of the platform rises and some of them sink with most of the platform colored with each color do different effect on the unit that step on it, but it is a race. You will be choosing only one hero to use to complete this level, which the selected hero will then race against an enemy unit to reach to the shining platform at the end.

Well, that's it my entry for the competition, sorry if it is hard to understand, as I don't know how to explain it myself.

Hmm... It seems like always when I host a puzzle or a mini-game contest everything just dies. I shouldn't be hosting such contents.  :P

So, should we just "abandon" this contest or make one week more time? I could also do a new contest at the same time with something easier.

First of all, suggesting a puzzle is hard.

Just abandon this and host another competition.

Yeah, that's fine.

I'll take Divine Seal's suggestion to use and think if I can plan the idea further.
