King Bowser

From SRB2 Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Thing type 1806, King Bowser, is a type of Thing used in Mario mode. In previous versions of SRB2, it was used as the boss at the end of Mario Koopa Blast Zone Act 3. It hops a short height and moves around, attacking at random by shooting flames or throwing hammers. The only way to destroy it is by submerging it at least 128 fracunits deep in water. King Bowser will always face westwards, regardless of the Thing's Angle. It will spawn in any gametype, even multiplayer gametypes such as Match.

When King Bowser is destroyed, a function is called that looks for sectors with tag 650 and raises their floor to the highest ceiling height of any adjacent sector. This was used in Mario Koopa Blast Zone Act 3 to open a door after King Bowser was defeated.
