I also have boulders set to 0. It makes Sokoban a lot pleasanter.

#2 LayneRobinson Thu, 6 Aug 2009 12:35:47
I would have voted higher if the format hadn't been 1 column.....

#3 ctaboir Thu, 6 Aug 2009 14:54:37
LayneRobinson: agreed!

#4 slowpoke Thu, 6 Aug 2009 17:24:15
So, a falling rock trap, when it gains a level, becomes a boulder trap? Just as a bigger, more dangerous trap because of the size? Or is there some further meaning to the joke?

It just occurred to me that a "rolling stone" trap should involve a Mick Jagger reference or similar within the game. "The Dev Team thinks of everything." But I don't recall any such pun. A shameful oversight, if so. :)

Two good reasons for it to be one column -- the captionless panels don't mess up the formatting this way, and also it's 11 panels long so there's no good way to format it.

Upgraded to E for letting Dudley triumph.

WOW.

THIS IS AWESOME.

Darnit, why do all the good strips appear when I'm not around to catch them?

#7 anther Sat, 8 Aug 2009 02:48:00
Agreed, this one is awesome. Clever!Dudley FTW.

Nice way to reinvent the old (for this version of Dudley, anyway) potion-throwing gags.

Only killed one orc. Typical Dudley luck.

Oh, wow, I missed this. This is great.
