09 - Cage Hoist and Shredder levelsIn this chapter I am concentrating on finishing the Shredder level from the last chapter and the Cage Hoist level.
This level has one-way elevators that your character must navigate
while avoiding the Shredder blades at the top and bottom of the screen.
There are 4 of these spinning blades that have a nice 3D look to them.
The image on the right doesn't do it justice and is more visible when you see the video to appreciate the animation.
Your character must jump from elevator to elevator while they are
moving so as to reach each of the security switches that you must
disable by simply walking over them.
This level is quite novel. Here you must board a Cage Hoist that you
control to reach each of the platforms with conveyor belts where
boxes are being dispatched. You must real each of the boxes before they
tumble off the conveyor and into the burning fire pits. Every box saved
turns the security switch OFF for that platform while every box missed
that falls into the fire, sets the security switch ON again.
This level is fast moving. When all the switches are disabled, no more boxes appear on the conveyers.
This level is the first of several with a mini-game as part of the level.
As promised last chapter is a video showing my work so far which
includes the Robots, Lifts and Countdown Timer from the last chapter.
