Of course the beloved pinky demon is back in minidoom 2 (with a small AI improvement). But we also have different kinds of pinkys coming from the other Doom games!
Pinkys are more dangerous now because they will knock you back if they hit you. Other than that they are pretty much the same, you also have more options to kill or dodge them. The chainsaw being specially useful if you manage to isolate one of them.
Specters are also coming back from doom1 with a skin overhaul. These sneaky bastards will be invisible when too far away, except for their eyes. I saw this effect used in brutal doom, and thought it was a brilliant take of the specter so I implemented it here!
Lastly from Doom2016 we have the Armored Pinky. These guys are slower but can perform a charge; they are also really though to kill from the front. They have a barrier that eats bullets (testing showed a visualization was needed).
But if you can avoid their deadly charge then you can hit their exposed back. Or just use splash damage and fry them.
All these pinky variations and more coming soon guys!
The Hell Razer from Doom2016 is here. And this enemy is so much damn fun!
This is enemy is just a basic roamer that will shoot you if you are near its range. But hell razers’ attacks are a beam that will instantly hit you if you are in its path.
To give the player a chance to dodge, the Hell Razer telegraphs its attack. The laser has to charge up before it is deadly, so you have a split second where you can see the path of the beam and react to it.
Hell Razers are tougher than imps, but they’re attacks aren’t more difficult to avoid, just different. You can still duck under the beam, or try to jump over it or dodge it. Get many of this guys in a room and it gets hectic, really cool.
Hell Razers Rave parties can get too hot
These fun-loving demons and many more will be here soon!
