Re: Game idea....
I send out one message that sparks an interesting discussion and then

Although this discussion is facinating, most missed what I meant in
my original game idea. I wasn't refering to a networked game at all.
(A deathmatch or cooperative megaman is an interesting idea by itself.)
Take Super Mario Brothers. Why did they bother putting in a jump limit?
Simply telling people not to jump high wouldn't of made an enjoyable
game. Instead the players needs to learn his limits and use skill to
escape situations. I want the same thing for my programmable megaman.
Perhaps he designs a flying machine to get over a pit. Someone else
designs a mega jump because it takes less energy. Another person
simply makes a brick layer. For weapons you might want area effect,
sinusodal, close combat, or tracking. Perhaps even design weapons
that anticipate the opponent's movement rather than just tracking.
