Topic: Options for kids!
I'm new to this forum and am posting an idea I just got today. I'm sorry if this has been covered elsewhere. Neverball seems to be a great way to keep young children occupied. It's a videogame that can be played inside while parents drink coffee and includes no violence or bad language - a perfect babysitter. There is just one problem: the time limit. A six-year-old boy visiting us today loved the game but felt the time limit was a nuisance, he would have wanted to just play with the ball and collect the coins. Every time the time ran out he just skipped to the next level as he was irritated by the time running out and eventually I had to leave my coffee and play Battleship with him.
I understand this might be against the purpose of the game. One other thing that some developer with extra time in his hands could do is a Childrens level with easy maps and with no time limit and only a limited number of ways to drop off the board (which, understandably, was another reason for skipping levels). These easy maps would also be a good place for new mappers to develop their skills.
What do you think?
