Ball Games in Mercenary

Post by Shoku » Sun Apr 25, 2004 5:20 pm

A few of the levels in Mercenary have spots were you can dunk a ball and get a spawned power-up. What's the general view of these in-game games. Does anyone bother with them? Or are they a waste of programing?

I like to mess around with them. I think I managed to sink all the balls I could find in the PTMC Tracking Station (had to use Concs to get one ball over a beam).

Some of the powerups spawned are well worth the effort (Mega Missiles anyone?).

I wasn't crazy about the ball/bomb trick in Level 15, but it was optional. In Merc, the ball games were OK.
There were also several 'bounce the laser off the mirror' tricks.
