Corrdior of Blades

Post by Dublex » Thu Oct 02, 2003 2:06 pm

I have to say, whoever came up with the idea of that must have been a genius of sadism or just a genius, as it needed both dungeoneers wits and skill and of their team members to dodge the baldes on either side - although why didn't they just lie flat during most of the encounters? the blades would have just gone over their heads.

Do you think it was just a natural development from the room of blades from the earier seires or it just jumped into someones head? The technology looks pretty advanced there anyway, with the moving corrdior, timed blade events i.e. when they came down etc.

Would be interesting to see the behind the scenes mechanics for that

Mind you Giles would have most probably been lying on the floor had his team told him to get down any lower :D

I like this one. It's the longest-running device ever used in Km from series 4-8. Probably coz it's so good. :)

Perhaps s few teams were worried that if they made their teams lie on the floor, a blade might have appeared vertically from the bottom and they wouldn't of had the reaction time to escape it?

Ahh, I loved the Corridor of Blades.

Definitely one of the better Knightmare traps.

I reckon it should've been slightly more graphic when they got hit (like the victims in series 8). Spilt the red paint again... ::)

I kinda like the Block and Tackle, many tended to fall down the pit or get mowed down by a low flying block!

But the Corridor of Blades is a seasons best for sure!

Oo, Corridor of Blades. Always was the best trap in my opinion, that and the Play your Cards Right game. Used to scare me like crazy when I was younger.

Corridor of blades was the most successful trap in KM's history, mainly due to the fact people simply panicked so much....Take Alistairs team from season4....They just SHOUTED at hime constantly, he therefore had no chance but to get out of the way of the oncoming blades.

Best tactic was wall to wall, and that wasn't seen that often, usually by later teams (am thinking Dunstan and co.)

Play Your Cards Right was pretty good, especially when we saw the goblins fall to their doom.  It was a fiarly simple game if you know what following suit means....If not then I guess erm, you will probably die!

The Fire Bomb rooms were interesting as people always panicked in those...Fire Ball Room from season 8 was also pretty good, again due to panic or simple misguidence.

The Fire Ball rooms were sort of compromised a bit in series 7 because of the emphasis on sight potions and the like. The teams should have been made to fend for themselves.

Well, I was trying to figure out what the heck was going on...

I didn't get the principle of the Play your Cards Right... But you are right Miina the Corridor of Blades was indeed a hit. Unsuprisingly it made it to the end of Knightmare...

By the way did you know Leo Smith (Series 3, Team 4)

My firnds always used to laugh when they got killed in the c of blades as they used to pannck even though teams knew what the corridor of blades was it stil kiiled them off (or nearly)
Thats why i like it so much! my favourite has to be team 3 from series 5(ooh you'll get to see that next week thosre of you with challenge tv) The reason i like it so much is that this team were such a bore and took far too long soa good slice of the action provided a much needed remedy and a very quick death too!!!

Indeed! I remember that one - a rare Life Force death for series 5 (come to think of it, the only one).

I always thought if i was in the CoB then id lie down - surely it couldnt be classed as cheating and you could always roll out of the way??

Surely a bit difficult whilst wearing an eye shield and helmet, and quite painful if you happen to roll over the pineapple you just picked up in the previous room. ;D
Truth will out. Ah yes. Truth will out and so will you.
