Thanks for the game, Alan.
When we were going to the Ants Cave to get the red ant ring, I told you there was some piano music I never heard near the ringheads. When you left, I spent a little bit more time trying to discover what was happening.
Actually, I doubt I never heard the music, but I was confused because it changes depending on how many rings you've collected, and that's something I never noticed. So there seems to be four tunes:
- 1) No rings
- 2) 1 or 2 rings
- 3) 3 rings
- 4) 4 to 6 rings
(The tunes don't have relation with the Thin Men, they can be heard near both sets of ringheads, and are different).
Since the music in the main central area also changes depending on the number of rings (I remember I knew it), and the cactus emmits a different sound when you've got 6 rings, maybe there're other places where it changes but we (or just I) didn't notice.
Oh, and about the red ant ring, now I know what was the strange thing I couldn't remember: in principle, unless you're very lucky or skillful, it can be got only as the last one (if you touch the ant you're sent to the burning cactus, but if it's the last one you're immediately sent to Rebirth Tunnel before touching the ant), though once I was able to get it as the first one. I remember there was some discussion about this ages ago. Anyway, I doubt there's anything significant here.
