What about making statues pushable?

That would be hilarious, and also probably not feasible.

Making them a cowardly 0-damage no-xp enemy with infinite defense would take care of a lot of it... besides the actually-being-a-wall part :P

Edit: heck, they could be breakable with a few hits, and the gold could be inside them... maybe you'd take a tiny amount of damage from hitting the statue, just to make it interesting?

Making them like low-hp Soko-Trolls? AWESOME!

Actually, that'd be interesting. They could retain they're hp from the original form I guess. That would make for some very interesting EM and Half-dragon combos.

I'm making the guess that it is not possible in the game engine to be a monster and a wall at the same time.
So that suggestion somehow misses the point of them being turned into walls, doesn't it?
Not to say I don't like it, I only think this is a 180° turn instead of an addition.

Hmm... True. Still, they could at least add the gold to your inventory.

Pushable statues that aren't walls and that drop gold are probably more beneficial to the player than straight-up walls with gold underneath. Harder to block yourself in, and you could set up PISORF shenanigans. So it could be a minor buff to IMAWAL, which would be nice. Might need a new name though.

This'd also open some doors when it comes to PISORF. This is actually the main reason I'd too like to see movable statues. :)
