New Miniboss: Egg Drone Type-B

Alternative names: Egg Drone Mk-II / Egg Core


Specs:

  • It is the supposed egg drone’s twin, with upgraded weapons.
  • Comes in two forms: its egg form and its offensive form.
  • Its health is indicated by the color of its yolk (core) with red-orange being the lowest one.
  • It is on its egg form when uninterrupted from any attacks, but it transforms into its offensive form when hit.
  • The drone and its turrets aim at the player if they continuously attack it, but after a short while of not being attacked it will revert back on its egg form.
  • Fire frequency is slightly slower than a Security Droid.
  • It works as a substitute for any minibosses for more difficult missions.
  • Attacks can be either neutron gun or laser cannon (with warning ping) on most difficult missions.
  • Optional: When enclosed on a bubble, any hit on it will trigger the droid changing to its offensive form.
    Here’s a pic showing its attack:

Summary

updated pic

Specs:

  • Larger than a Egg Drone but smaller than the Metallic Egg.

  • Only moves sideways and fires every short while.

  • It can only fire while it’s on open form and stays on a fixed place while doing that.

  • It can tilt itself to fire either at a random direction or towards the player.

  • It can only move while it’s on closed form and immune to all kinds of damage.

  • Has 4 turrets (on the sketch) and fires purple beams. The frequency and speed of the beam depends on the difficulty level.

  • Periodically it fires laser cannon (like on Space Crab’s) instead of the usual purple beams. It charges itself for a short while make the player prepare for it. Not included in the sketch though.

  • Optional: The number of drones appearing at a time also depends on the difficulty level. One on Tourist up to three on Superstar Hero (currently the highest difficulty). The screen zooms out as well.

That’s all for a mini boss. Suggestions are welcome but should not be complicated.

But isn’t the egg drone… bigger?

Also: Bubble EggDrone-B wave Xd

I do refer to it’s main body, excluding the horn.

“Type-B” was just an inspiration from a game that I play. “MK-II” works too.

Alright, just saying a scenario where not only bubbles protect the drones but also themselves. Like worst case scenario.

Isn’t it better as a boss? Maybe add 1 more pattern and it would be good.

Bubble shield won’t always be there (activated) and the drone itself open to attack the player where they’re invulnerable.

Wait, I didn’t mention any bubble shied. It’s just the drone itself takes no damage when in closed form.

It’s already a boss wave, by my recent edit. Two attack patterns are enough for this enemy given the simple design.

I am saying, hypothetically, where upon a egg drone b is placed within a bubble during a wave, where they will be really annoying.

Although that’s not a reaſon not to have them at all.

Your suggestions bothers me a little so I made a poll categorizing this enemy:

  • A miniboss (Chick Gatling Gun, etc.)
  • A boss (Big Chicken, etc.)

Attacks and appearance might be changed after this.

How about make the two of them, the mini version and the boss version? It would be great

Main reason probably is the simplicity of its attack pattern. I could come up with a new ones but that’ll be another thread — as a boss.

For now, this will be updated as a miniboss.
