Thanks.

I am not sure about Maze Beast though... it just happens to be in the maze but it's not something that defines the beast itself. ;-) (Would be a good redirect page, but I am still looking for the actual title of this enemy.)

In that case coming up with a suitable name for the beast in indeed tricky... :chin
Any hint what that V4 "Genkäfer" is in English?

A gene (manipulated) beetle. I'm not sure if that's correct however. They might be just beetles. ;-) I don't remember them very well. I think they escaped from glass tubes or so. That might imply that they have somehow be altered genetically.

A-ha! Thank you for refreshing my memory. :D They were indeed in glass tubes/cages. If I have the time I'll replay 13th Floor and take a look in they're any different than the beetles in Last Revelation... :chin

I have now added "Ghost Skeletons" and "Red Beetles" to the list.

Still not sure about the "brown beats", plus does everybody get the right association when hearing "mechanical diver" any other ideas for a name?

How about "mini-submarine"? But "mechanical diver" is okay too, those annoying enemies with their torpedoes in Deepsea Dive...
