Thank you! And yes I think you can use the jetpack when charging, but without any movement penalty. This is because there is a sacrifice in the power of the weapon due to your jetpack using some of the energy as well, and you also won't be able to jetpack very far, so it will be fair to use this as a quick retreat when your plan fails, or are taken by surprise. However, I didn't think about losing a leg, so maybe the movement penalty won't apply in that situation or just significantly reduced, but that may make the upgrade to reduce the penalty obsolete until you die and respawn, but those are just my thoughts.

But yeah, this weapon is not meant be used to pick off a single enemy one at a time, no, its recommended that you charge the weapon to it's full potential and eliminate a massive group of enemies with one blow, which is why timing and position is important, so you land the attack at the perfect moment before the enemy gets close enough to kill you. A great risk, but with great reward! This is why I think this weapon will be very fun to use and very devastating in the right hands.

hmm... just thinking of this now, because the sword could reach a spidertron-6000, IT LOOKS LIKE DOBOROG NEEDS TO START RESEARCH ON SPIDERTRON-7000! xD and, generally speaking, I find that the levels that I get swarmed on are mid to late game-diamond, titanium, and some gold levels, so the (for now i'll just call it the energy staff :P) energy staff would come into play at the perfect time :D

Yes, this idea of a weapon is more meant to assist the player further in mid-late levels, killing a massive amount of enemies with one attack, then you can use your sword, bow, or hammer to finish off the any few that are left or for specific enemies. And that just made me think of something, "POWER"/"BOSS" weapons. A cool idea that involves unlocking these kinds of weapons after a certain point in the game or beating a certain boss. Only one of these weapons can be equipped by the player at a time, and they are specialized to promote their own playstyle and have their own unique drawbacks, like the energy staff we were talking about, and assist the player when he gets to certain situations and get pass the higher tier levels.

2 things:

1. Maybe the movement penalty should be 25%, 50% is basically as slow as you walk with one leg and it's SO FREAKING ANNOYING! Sorry, I just hate having only one leg..

2. Who the frick is teaching medieval fantasy to the robots? Is Erik at it again? Gosh, soon we'll have wyverns flying around the arena!

Oh, wait...

Well, I did decide to reduce the movement penalty to 30%, with possibly upgrades to reduce it further. I'm quite sure I updated the main post about the staff for that. And since there seems to be a lot of medieval resemblance in the game, except it's mixed with future technology,SO WHY NOT MAKING EVER MORE MEDIEVAL!!!

it also bears a resembelance to the Roman colleseum

Yeah, but replace gladiators with MK1/2/3 "Sword Robot" Simple Melee Unit and MK1/2/3 "Archer" Combat Archer, also MK1/2 "Jetpack Bot" Jetpack Propelled Swordsman, and MK1/2/3 "Hammer Bot" Heavy Combat Unit, and replace the tigers and lions with MK5/6 "Spidertron" Arachnid Bomber and MKX "Sawlamander" Mobile Saw Dilacerator.

about that dog saw thing... Doborog was going to add it... but then he couldn't decide what would happen if it lost one of it

s legs, and with good reason, I mean, look at physics and the other two quadripeds in the game :P
