“Inverting laterally” is the same as mirroring. Do you mean “inverting vertically” (a.k.a. flipping)? In any case, all waves where this would make a significant difference already offer this. I don’t want to go edit 100+ waves just to add vertical flipping, especially since that’s significantly more disorienting.
@InterAction_studios I’ll continue this via a new thread.
I didn’t mean it as “inverting vertically” only as horizontally. Making waves invert vertically would be harsh for some players, especially they’ll need to familiarize again with the “shooting downwards” environment. Some boss fights will be awkward as well.
I meant it as a mission add-on that is equippable for the entire mission, a new suggestion. Although it doesn’t (almost) affect some or many of the waves due to their random nature (Swimming in Space, Gyroscope Malfunction, etc.) or uniform formation (Chicken Quadrants, Soft in the Middle, etc.) It is applied on boss fights as well, like Special Needs’ left-to-right entrance instead of its right-to-left entrance.
Applying wave variations:
If Mission Codename X: has the wave Highway Chase that has chickens going from left to right. Then this add-on will make them go right to left.
Assuming that Mission Codename Y has applied Akemisora’s suggestion, where the wave Highway Chase had chickens going from right to left. This add-on will make them go left to right.
The icon will look similar to this:
Applying on mission slots:
Sample wave without the add-on:
Sample wave with the add-on:
The price should be low enough, as this is purely cosmetic in nature.
