Draw a boulder to activate switches!

–Design Prompt

Boulders are creations first drawn in Rapocity in Drawn to Life.

Boulders can be pushed by The Hero using YButton and are used to activate switches within levels. Once a boulder is pushed onto a switch, a platform will be raised allowing, The Hero to advance through to otherwise inaccessible areas.

TowerIcon Appearance Edit

Due to the Boulder being a creation object and having no pre-drawn preset or guide, the appearance of this object is completely dependent on the player.

They are still confined to a circular 3048px area.

Question Trivia Edit

  • If The Hero is in the process of pushing a boulder then jumps, the "pushing" animation is retained until The Hero touches the ground again.
  • The Hero doesn't need to be directly to the right or left of the Boulder in order to push it.
  • Boulders are among the only non-transportation creations to display a secondary help message when drawn.
  • Boulders have momentum and can continue to move after falls or player interaction.
  • The second-to-last Boulder creation can phase through the platform to its left and fall out of the world.
  • Though the Boulder creation acts as a solid platform to the player, enemies are unable to interact with them and will simply phase through.
    • Likewise, enemies are also unable to interact with the platforms this creation moves.
  • Boulders are the largest level creation relative to the hero's initial height.
  • The Hero uses a unique "pushing" animation when moving this creation.
  • The Boulder creation can be pushed out of the world in some segments of Rapocity. Doing so will make the level impossible.[1]
