Drippinggoofromtheceiling Man is my favorite robot master. The one whose level theme is 4'33.
The gimmick is perfectly satisfactory by itself, but I think it could use some alternate versions. Let's say, acid, fire, oil and hot water.
By itself the dripping goo is a fine gimmick but has other things it can be replaced by and may struggle to be unique enough to be worth considering. Alterations to its behavior would give it agency through increasing its interactive capabilities.
The goo is a 1x1 object that can be placed wherever, given a number setting and a color. The number setting will decide the delay before dropping, and the color will decide the type of the dropping liquid.
Possible alternative types include:
- Acid (probably green or original color) will behave like in the original, and also will acidize Acid Man's chemical water if it was to be added. An alternative to this would be a base type (probably purple color) which would de-acidize chemical water.
- Fire (orange color) will burn when it hits the ground instead of splitting, and will set oil and TNT fuse on fire.
- Hot water (blue or light purple color) will extinguish oil and TNT fuse. Hotness is so that the projectile still deals damage, though it could just not deal damage and be made normal water.
- Oil (darkest color) will create a single oil slick which would ideally work like PU oil.
