Design An Enemy For Frontier (a game) - Closed

Hello.

I've been making a game called “Frontier” in HTML5 and I'm very proud of it. However, currently there is only one planet. So, I thought it might be fun if I created a competition type thing (although, there won't really be a “winner”).

(The game's located here: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/195508672/)

Basically, you have to describe/design and enemy/boss for the game (hence the title). But, there are a few things you must stick to… (It would be good if you could create a little bit of art so I have something to work on visual wise)

1. The enemy must suit the theme (which is a slightly alien rainforest)
2. The enemy mustn't be too complicated (as I need to program these and I don't want to spend weeks making each one)
3. The idea for the enemy must be crazy, silly and maybe funny.

So, that's about it…

BTW: You can submit more than one idea.
There is a chance I may not use your idea, it may be because it's too impractical, they're too many ideas (so I don't get round to yours) or I might prefer another idea.

Have fun!

I might include that, however I'm going to wait until I get a few more entries first.

It would be good if you could describe what it will do (e.g how it attacks, ect.), so I have a bit more to work from.

BTW: You didn't need to do any art, I was planning on doing that

I think it should come from behind you, so if you are defeating a few enemies in front of you, it will come and you'll have to dodge things from the front and back of the screen. If you add this, it will make the player have to learn to dodge many attacks at a time, and it'll make them get better at the game. Once the player sees that they're improving, they'll feel encouraged to play longer. If the player manages to avoid the attacks, then the enemies will end up accidentally hitting each other, giving the player a little bit of a break.

Also, is the enemy you want us to create going to be the boss enemy, or just one of the enemies you encounter before you get to the boss?

That sounds like a good idea, maybe I could have some slightly creepy music when it comes, maybe it would be black to start with so it blends in with the background. Then when it gets near it could pounce and show itself.

You can make a boss if you like, I probably should have said that in the post so I've changed it now.
BTW: It's good you did the art because it helps give me an idea of how it will look. (though, I will redo it in pixel-art )

a poppy thing is a small cute skin coloured ball but when you get to close it pounces on you and eats you

It'll also fit the theme better.

I don't think it fits the theme. But it might be good for the next one as it might be a robot planet. Maybe the magnets could attract the spaceship because it's made of steel (or something magnetic) and you have to get a different spaceship that's made out of something else.
(Plus, I've already made the boss)

Currently I'm adding achievements and stats after that I need to review the difficulty of the new world and then it's pretty much done. (I had been procrastinating and getting distracted too which didn't help )
