Wha whut? The painter is back at it again? Well, I am! Just one day and I have another idea. ()
Anyway, as you know, most boss names are either refrences or puns, so I’d like for people to suggest an actual good name. Onto the thingy thing.
It be it.
It can shoot. Amazing. It can open it’s beak and shoot somewhat inaccurate bullets at the hero. Not dangerous alone, but together with…
Egg ships! Yes they are a UFO egg drone hybrids. Or UFE (Undetified Flying Egg). These UFE’s are spawned at the center of the boss, and will fly out. They will move around and shoot bolts. There should be a limit for how many can be on screen. Perhaps 8? 6?
Oh and this boss also uses the actual egg drones. It shoots them from it’s back, and then they go from the top to the bottom of the screen. They behave like in normal CI3 waves.
The most dangerous thing however is the boss’… alert attack? It’s eyes will blink red for 0.5-1 second, and then, if there are any, all egg drones will instantly attack (even if they shot already) and all UFE’s will try to slam the hero.
That’s mostly it. Again all suggestions and names welcome.
I know this boss requires CI3 content as well as a whole custom enemy, but if IA can use it somewhere else too, then it might be worth it. Otherwise some normal UFO could be used.
Also the pictures might imply that all attacks will be happening at once, but there should be some breathing room to clear out the UFE’s and dodge the egg drones. That doesn’t mean SSH can’t be chaotic
