Still Working On It

Yes, I'm well aware that I suck pretty hard when it comes to updating this blog. I really don't know why, but I guess it has to do with the fact that anything I'm working on at this point is generally with the rooms, and it's pretty hard to make anything about the rooms sound fun.

So... rather than posting about the possibly interesting stuff I've done to the game during the summer, I'm going to bore you by talking about an enemy instead! Yay!

This particular enemy is the Sharpie.

Found in the regions within Aqua Shore, these creatures simply crawl along the floor, walls, and ceiling.

They're pretty harmless as long as you keep your distance, but if you get too close...

... they'll extend their spines in self-defense. So long as you don't touch them in this state, you'll be fine. Sharpies can be best described as 'moving spikes.' Any other soft-bodied creature that touches the Sharpie when its spines are extended will take damage.

Unlike most other enemies you'll encounter, Sharpies have hard shells as their armor and are impervious to most attacks. While it's certainly possible to defeat these types of enemies by slowly whittling down their health, you're better off using a hard hitting attack such as Tiger Force or a charged up attack.
