I love Bionicle. Other kids had Transformers, or PokeMon cards, or HotWheels... I had Bionicle. I was an original fan, with Toa Mata Lewa as my first Bionicle figure, and since then I was an loyal Bionicle fan. Unfortunately (for myself) I grew out of Bionicle after the Voya-Nui era, when the Inika ventured into the depths of the Pit, and lost interest.But I am 18 now, and I am deeply interested in the Bionicle saga now. I'm not much interested in playing with toys anymore, but the story and the depth of the Bionicle universe stil amazes me. So here I am, telling you all that I might consider making a game of Bionicle.But don't sit there and think you're going to be getting some flashy Flash game with amazing graphics, or some game like that "Bionicle Fighter" game. No, my game will be a 'lesser' game in terms of quality.The medium I'll be using is a site known as "MyGameBuilder". On it, you create TILES, and then turn them into ACTORS, and then put them together into MAPS, and you can then link these maps together by PORTALS to create different levels and all. Easy-to-use, and pretty neat little site I think. The tiles are pixel-based, and you draw 32x32 tiles all the way up to 128x128, and everything in between. After drawing these tiles (and keep in mind - I'm not good at drawing sprites), you give them 'smarts', such as how much HP they have, how much damage they do, how fast they move, etc. It works, and it's not a bad medium, but it's not up to par with ones you're all familiar with.I plan on doing a game based around the Bionicle timeline, beginning with the arrival of the Toa Mata on Mata Nui. You choose a Toa, go on some quests to fight Rahi and find masks. Then you'll fight the Bohrok, and then later the Bohrok Kal, then the Rahkshi, then defeat Makuta, etc. Along the way your Toa will get stronger, I plan on using some form of an RPG in it.The site:http://s3.amazonaws.com/apphost/MGB.html#Some games: Go to the site, but it might site "MGB is offline", but ignore that, you can stillplay games. Click on "Play Games" and check it out.
