Hammer devlog 21
atm this is where I am with that boss.
I don't know who Nazaan is or how having a destructible tail and a form change qualifies as unchanging. I pulled that name out of my ass so I'd have something to stick over a lifebar, lol.
Anyway, it's getting to be at least a little bit of a fight now! Obviously, this gif has my stats cranked way up and infinite energy turned on for demonstration purposes; in an actual game scenario this thing would be balanced such that it wouldn't lose a quarter of its health from a single volley.
I actually really like the Demon's Spine teleport dash as a combat option and I'm probably gonna rework that pretty massively to open it up, because it's actually a lot of fun to do crazy shit like what I did to open this. It's basically sacrificing the ability to run a useful weapon in that slot in exchange for being able to vault around like a maniac and open up lines of fire that are otherwise unavailable.
I still need to start the second phase, and I really want to give the first phase an extra attack while the tail is out of the way, but I'm not sure what...
Mostly: I really hate what a slow worker I am. This shit is way behind schedule and I need to pick up the pace.
