sleepy

(no subject)

A lot of game areas really break down when you think about the box.

Currently, my goal is to get through a gate. There are two circles of power on elevated platforms on either side, and I have to activate them both. To do this, I must run through a (relatively) large area and work my way back around to them.

I've got, oh, a dozen warriors. Can't they just help each other climb the wall and get directly to the circles? I mean, honestly, that wall's less than ten feet tall. Shouldn't be that hard.

I'm going to try very hard to not do anything like that in my games. Won't be easy, though.

(It's also worth mentioning that each platform with a circle on it extends *past* the gate, so if climbing ten feet is beyond you, perhaps getting to the first circle and then jumping down won't be.)
