LOTHT Video Game Concept
« on: June 24, 2010, 02:10:25 PM »
This is an idea I came up with. Basically, you and a partner are exploring 15 different temples, with each using the 15 layouts used in the actual show. There are 10 (5 male, 5 female) characters available at the start, each with different attributes (speed, strength, etc.), with 6 characters being unlocked by completing different objectives (eg. escape while not encountering any temple guards, escape the temple with at least 60 seconds left). There are 8 artifacts per temple, and you must retrieve at least 4 to move onto the next temple. Temple 1 uses layout 1, Temple 2 uses layout 2, etc.

Scoring System
Complete a Room=100xTemple Number
Grab an Artifact=500xTemple Number x Level Number
Escape the Temple=1,000xTemple Number x Level Number
Time Bonus=100 points per second x Temple Number
Complete a Temple=10,000xTemple Number
All artifact bonus=5,000xTemple Number
Find the other half of your pendant=1,000 (Medium), 2,000 (Expert)
No temple guard bonus=1,000
Multiply all of these scores by 1.5 on Medium, 2 on Hard, 3 on Expert, and 5 on X-Treme.

Other rules:
You must successfully retrieve at least 4 artifacts to complete a temple. Otherwise you must start the temple over without any of the failed temple?s artifacts.
If you?re caught by all of the temple guards, you lose a life and must start the level over.
If you fail to reach the artifact, you go onto the next level, but you also lose a life.
If you manage to reach the artifact, but you don?t escape in time, you simply move onto the next level without gaining or losing any lives.
If you manage to escape the temple before time is up, you move onto the next level and receive an extra life.
You start with 2 pendants on Easy, 1 ? pendants on Medium, 1 pendant on Hard, ? a pendant on Expert, and no pendants on X-Treme.

That sounds like a great concept if it could be made to work.  The only downside is the amount of guesswork some of these levels would require, considering how some teams didn't make it far enough for us to tell which path was the right one. :o

Still, you could try pitching it to Ed if he has enough time on his hands? I wonder if it's possible to create a special version of Temple Runner that could at least work with part of that.
If you have seen all 120 full episodes of Legends, copy and paste this into your profile for all to see.

Favorite episode: The Levitating Dog Leash of Nostradamus
Favorite season: Season 2, very closely followed by Season 3
Favorite team: Blue Barracudas
