Quicksand is a gimmick from Mega Man 4, found in Pharaoh Man's stage. It is a long strip of sand that slows Mega Man down and pulls him downwards.

Quicksand was first made available in the devkit for the original Make a Good Mega Man Level, but wasn't used anywhere in the final game.

Quicksand returned in Make a Good Mega Man Level 2, and was used in the entries Ancient Tomb, A Mega Man for All Seasons, and Beneath Sand and Rock, as well as the Wily stage Reality Core, the Tier X stage Deep Thoughts, and the Pit of Pits sub-level "Sandstorm Base". It also appeared in the Make a Good 24 Hour Mega Man Level entry Flooded Temple, and the Make a Good Mega Man Level: Episode Zero levels Construction of Constructions and Null and Void.

Behavior[edit]

If Mega Man stands in Quicksand, his movement speed will be lowered and he will slowly sink into it. If he stays in it for too long, he will hit the bottom and fall out of it if there isn't solid ground underneath him. Sasoreenus are able to hide in Quicksand, emerging when Mega Man gets close. If the Rain Flush is used on it, it will freeze up and no longer affect Mega Man's movement (also preventing Sasoreenus from emerging).

Quicksand comes in two versions; one that's four blocks wide, and another (labelled internally as "QuicksandB" that's only one block wide.
