Hey Misfit, your new game and the request for name suggestions got my imagination working. RodMän may be a reference to the VIC & C16 Boulderdash clone Rockman, but the ä-dots, I guess, is a nod to the other meaning of “rock”? With that in mind I thought of…
He strolls around the edge of the maze. He is harmless as long as you stay out of his way… However, if you happen to cross his way (perhaps unavoidably while being chased by another villain), he will transform to Fast Eddie and will hunt you down with even less mercy than Blinky of Pac-Man. Fast Eddie may be of Sirius Software fame or of Motörhead fame, but please do not confuse him with Frantic Freddie of C64 and Queen fame.
The twins T ‘n’ T.
Two T-shaped characters that run around randomly. When they meet, they explode in Bomberman style and suitably accompanied by the famous TNT-riff.
Dee Dee T.
A completely brainless guy, who leaves a toxic trail that is sure to kill, not only our hero Bug-eyed Buck, but also all those pesky bugs that otherwise accumulate and cause unexpected (and for the player often lethal) behavior of the game itself.
He is the brother of Dee Dee R., who penned such immortal lines like: “DDT did a job on me, now I am a real sickie” in an ode to his brother.
Okay, I am admittedly just goofing around for my own pleasure and you obviously already have enemy behavior down, but feel free to use these
Best of luck with the game. Sounds like it could be really fun!
