New Archangel of 666 level messages
« on: May 10, 2016, 00:15 »

Anyone who has made the long, hard slog through the Archangel of 666 challenge probably knows that there are little extra messages along the way on certain levels.  I've been playing a fair bit of ArchAo666 lately, so, I got the idea of creating this thread to come up with possible ideas for new messages that could maybe be introduced in future versions.


Some ideas that I've come up with:

Level 255:  Careful you don't roll over to -256!

Level 365:  I'll bet it feels like you've been playing for a year.

Level 420:  Is anyone getting the munchies?

Level 566:  The rest should be easy, just like playing Angel of 100.  :)

Anyone else have any suggestions?

I'm fairly certain that "This level is not found." (level 404) either already is, or definitely should be implemented as well.
And on the same note, "This level is OK." (level 200) sounds good.

Put this on 127 instead (256 would roll over to 0 instead of underflowing to a negative number, because signed/unsigned), and I'll put in a support vote.

And would roll over to -128, not -256.

Just like how the nerd references are subtle, just have "Don't roll over on this level" for 255

Well, now I imagined playing ArchAo666, clearing level 255, descending the stairs and seeing the message:

"Welcome to level 0. You have rolled over."

That would freak me out ...

If you don't want to put both 403 and 404 in, why not 504 then? "Timeout! You feel kinda disconnected."

I suppose we should go to the source for significant numbers such as....

It's not just that the number is significant, we also need to be able to make a level entrance message from it.

So rather than dropping a link on us and saying "here, use this significant number," why not say "Here's a message for level 400"?
