Title: New ways to play!
Post by: Hypnotoad on August 25, 2008, 05:47:32 am
Do you have a new way to play an old game? If so, tell us!

The most obvious thing is turn-based time trials through platforming levels, but it could be something with more - or less - depth

Sometimes map editors will let you engineer levels to your ideas

Just be creative

The Three Heart Challenge is pretty popular. i.e finish a Zelda game without any Heart Containers at all.

I suppose then that on all Pokémon games you could do a one Pokémon challenge, complete the game without catching any Pokémon. Of course, many beginners only train one Pokémon up anyway.

What else? Metroid (the series) already has just about everything covered.

I've come up with one. An Anti-Magic challenge on Final Fantasy VI. Although I'm sure you could do it with any FF game. Just don't use magic throughout the entire game and stick with weapons. Use Items to cure you rather than magic. I might try it sometime.

And there's the cat races on TS3

Use mapmaker to create a course with four cats in the first room

First player to the end of the course wins

And from the three heart challenge comes a challenge for Okami, complete the game without upgrading your life, ink or Astral Pouches (not money though, cause you need to have a bigger wallet at times). It has to be a file you start by selecting new game though.
