Looking for playtesters!
Almost done demo and some new lighting effects.
Description
Release date: TBD
The fighting game among the 2D action-platformers

Specter is a 2D action platformer that provides the player with a massive arsenal of attacks, which are used during both combat and platforming. When we say action-platforming we mean it!

Check out our website: http://specter-game.com

The game revolves around the player's abilities. You’ll be receiving a new ability after the completion of just about every level (attacks/activations are inspired by the Kirby series).
You are going to encounter obstacles such as walkways that flip around when struck by your dashing attack, or platforms that only appear when struck by a charged projectile (a more literal approach to “action-platforming” if you will).

The theme of Specter’s gameplay is critical thinking. We want players to constantly be thinking about the most efficient attack to use on a group of enemies, or quickly assessing a simplistic puzzle, before leaping forward in narrow escape of rising lava.
This concept is encouraged in combat with elements like time limits during battle segments, and valuable rewards for speedy battle playthroughs (such as boosted max HP, secondary effects for your attacks, or even unlocking special attacks).

Features that will be in the demo:
  • Six levels and one boss fight.
  • Five active abilities and eight perks.
  • 14+ enemy types and 11+ platforming obstacles.
  • Beautiful dynamic lighting effects.
  • Fully featured online highscores.

Features that are planned for the final game:
  • Four more worlds.
  • Switch between five different weapons in combat.
  • 35 abilities!
  • More content (enemies, platforming obstacles, etc).
  • A multiplayer arena mode?

The game is feature complete in terms of the demo. We are working on levels right now and hope to release a playable build soon!
