If I'm understanding the game correctly, its a two player game where each player controls a guy like the one in the video and you race to complete the level while being able to attack each other?
yes, that's basically it.
however, I'm thinking of having the players start at opposite ends of the level, and have them cross all the level to the opposite end to score a point.
so, player 1 would start at the left side of the level, and his goal would be at the right end of the level. player 2 starts at the right side of the level and has to reach the left side of the level to score.
of course, levels will be very short, to keep things interesting.
this works a bit like nidhogg I think, though I've never played it.
first player to score three points in a row wins. the third level is actually a tower, and players must climb up to reach the top first.
so you can see that there's actually not a lot of speed running involved. it's more like a grappling hook brawler with the score system from nidhogg.
although it'll probably not turn out to be anything like this
Anyway, I'd really have to play it to know if its worthwhile.
I agree :/
