COTM #30 How about another maze (low linecount)?

Post by Z_N-Freak on Tue Jun 23, 2015 1:03 pm

The maze contest has gotten more entries already than the previous few COTM's I believe and I think it just means we all love mazes, so how about another one?

I'd be willing to create & host, but I'd like to leave recording & editing of the final entries to someone else (basically I'm not willing to spend time on it, soz...).

My idea would be to have this maze be a sort of puzzle, where people will be trying to figure out how to use their lines most effective. I remember that a long time ago we had a low-line count maze that I won by strategically placing lines and sometimes even re-using them. To me it was a fun puzzle, to figure out how to use fewer and fewer lines.

Maybe we should call this type of contest a parkour (obstacle course), rather than a maze, as I believe we've never got lost in any of our mazes, haha.

I want to see a maze that is truly difficult to maneuver in terms of finding a way through
also I want something that abuses glitches more but that's just me ilking to show off glitches

how about something where you can only draw lines in certain green boxes and there is an area with obstacles that you have to get through without drawing lines (airtime) and you have to land in another green box and then go through the next obstacle with increasing difficulty until the task is nearly impossible and we judge it based on number of obstacles passed and if multiple people get through all obstacles it will be the fastest time?

What would that mean? Aren't video's essentially .gifs in the sense that they both play enough pictures fast enough in a row to create the sense of a moving picture.

I'm guessing that for the .gif the limitation would be that there is no music? But this sounds essentially like more work than creating an actual track and recording it, because you'd need to take a screenshot of each frame or something right? It sounds interesting, but maybe not so accessible, as in, I've never even created a .gif to be honest... Must be easy to do though I guess.

And the .gifs would need to be Line Rider content right? Not one from your cat :p

Basically I've got no clue haha, I'd be interested to see what people come up with.

Oh wow, this sounds cool too. Kind of like playing pinball, but with multiple interaction points where you're allowed to manipulate by drawing lines. I'd be totally down for creating either this or a maze. Both sound like cool ideas to me.

I was gonna say nothing like playing pinball but wow you're exactly right. It would be EXTREMELY tricky to make this contest sheldon suggested and even harder to get very far in it. Don't just draw boxes now. :P
Also I like the gif contest idea

I would love to do a low line count maze. I missed the last one and it looked fun.

I have another maze contest cooked up, if you guys want me to run it again. I already have the maze made, and I'll keep it a secret until next month Wink
Also, I can record and edit, as always Smile

Has a "Track in a Shape" contest been done before? Not a box, but a track in a circle or a track in a weirdly shaped polygon, or a track inside a blocky 'U' shape. I think it'd be fun.

Speaking of ideas, wouldn't mind another beta decline contest (only allowed to erase lines to make the track)

Some really cool ideas but I think a gif (basically, coolest loop contest) would be the awesome! Imagine everyone's avatars after that.

How about something like a sabotage-y collab track? Each entrant tries to make the best part, while making the other contributors' parts more difficult. While each person tries to make the next person's part difficult to start, (s)he still has to prove that it is possible to get out.
