Overview

Waterworks Zone is a massive dam. Gimacian used it to cut off the animals' water supply. It has tanks of water that are being stored. This zone has 2 acts, both of which are Surge only, and a boss. This level takes inspiration from the Itaipu Dam, a hydroelectric dam located on the border between Brazil and Paraguay.

Gimmicks

Creative Gimmicks for Waterworks:

Concept art
The brown platforms are in fact the ones that rise and fall,
and the blue-green gear on the side is meant to move the 
platforms (or the water). -- svgmovement


Interactive platforms
The green one is supposed to be propeller-powered. The blue 
cylinder would be the rolling platform. My idea was that Surge
would run on top of the cylinder (circle from 2D), and rotate
it to move forward. -- svgmovement


Rock face, pipes, platforms
The backdrop here is a rock face.
In front of the rock face is supposed to be the transport pipe.
At the very front are platforms suspended by cables. -- svgmovement
