View Full Version : Shinobi 3 Surf Level - Any Ideas?

If any of you guys played Shinobi 3 on the Genesis, you probably know what I'm talking about.

I wanted to try and see if this was even possible in Little Big Planet... basically, in one level of Shinobi 3 Joe Musashi had a surfboard that was basically attached to him at all times - during jumping, while attacking etc. while he was jumping off of ramps, avoiding explosives, etc.

Any ideas on how to replicate this sort of behavior (with the surfboard)?

I know what you mean... old school style.

You could maybe attach the surfboard to a jet pack with a minimum radius, and make the surf board grabbable, and some extremely thin/invisible dark matter above the water/level line to keep the player from flying up away from the play area - then maybe try to make the level move towards you using Gilgamesh/Jirugameshi's infinite level technique... as for water check out the water physics video and look for the surfing level video. That's some pretty amazing stuff, but would be hard to include in a full level... it could still give some inspiration.

Thanks! I'll definitely give it a shot. The surfboard with the jetpack attached to it sounds real interesting.
