Hi, just wanted to show you the new game I'm working on. It's an old school platformer.
The idea in the game is that something has removed all the colour from the world and you have to collect pots of paint to bring the world back to the way it was. I've not fully worked out the story yet, but that's the basic idea.
The game play requires the use of different hats, each of which you pick up as you go. In this level the hat is for extra speed, without it, you won't make certain jumps. Later on there's a hat for higher jumps and another for more strength. Still thinking of other hats and what they can be used for. Each hat has a downside, like the speed hat making the player harder to control and the strength hat slowing your movement, so you only wear them at the right times.
Still HEAVY work in progress but I'd just like to see if anyone was having any issues before I carry on making more levels.
I'll probably change some of the graphics especially the hats as I'm not 100% happy with them yet.
The keys to play are LEFT and RIGHT cursor to move and SPACE to jump. Press 1 to put on the speed had once you've picked it up, press 0 to take it off. The other hats are in there (keys 2 and 3) but there's no use for them in this level. When done you won't be able to select an hat until you've picked it up in later levels.
Let me know what you think.
