Ring Boomerang picks up more stuff

Post by Brazencoronet17 » Tue Jul 09, 2019 1:45 pm

R. Boomerang is able to take certain pickcups and bring them back to you, making for some intresting reward challenges. It can pick up small and large energies, small and large healths, and lives.

Why can't it pick up E and M tanks, yashichis, or keys though? I think this could create more potential for metroidvanias and make the weapon more useful in general. I guess the same goes for hornet chaser.

This is a good idea, yes?

No it's not a good idea, it's a great idea! I never understood why they didn't make it pick up keys, tanks, and yashichis. Also your right, needing Ring Boomerang or Hornet Chaser to collect some keys could create more potential for metroidvanias and make the weapon more useful in general.
Help! I'm glitching.

Hornet chaser doesn't need to pick up more items, that'd just make it too powerful.

Hell yeah, make hornet chaser pick up energy elements so I can make a level where you have to platform on gyro blocks while running away from the hornet with the energy element

That doesn't make any sense, if you made such a level and I played it, I could just let the hornet bring me the energy element and end the level.

You see, if you touch the energy element while standing on any kind of disappearing/falling block that is above the pit, you'll die because you're immobilized, the player becomes invincible only when the victory track starts playing

in my opinion, the Ring boomerang pick up E-tanks or Yashichis and keys would be a good idea as I think this weapon has become a bit obsolete compared to the Hornet Chaser.

More like level designers have two similar tools to make levels with. Which you pick depends on how you want the level played.

Considering in 4 (not counting the gb version) it didn't even pick up items and it's still a powerful projectile it's nowhere near outclassed. Instead, when Magic card is added it'd just be a weaker version of Ring boomerang with the ability to go up, meaning it'd hardly be worth using when compared.
