Enlist the assistance of one of id software's classic personalities and blow teapots away with a rocket launcher!
The act of the "airshot" (midair, blue plate special, whatever you want to call it) is easily my favourite aspect of old multiplayer arena shooters. It's a rare moment of style and a lovely display of the sort of "brutal elegance" that defines those games.
I originally thought of this idea for an SA gamedev contest following the lines of Subversive Edutainment, being a game that teaches you how to shoot people in mid-air. I couldn't figure out how to take it much further than the baseline, so it fit the bill for a 7hfps.
I wonder if I made it too hard.
