Dr.Green Winter Level
Description
Release date: 2014
Dr.Green is a retro, arcade inspired action platformer. Fight through 8 action packed, puzzle filled levels as the orphan Dr.Green, to save the forest and take revenge on the evil forces trying to destroy it.

Story

One day Dr.Green awakes to find his home under attack. The forest he grew up in was under siege by workers. Their sole intent to destroy the natural beauty of his home for profit. Dr.Green, insensed by thier actions makes a stand against them in order to stop the destruction and save his home. Embarking upon this journey will take Dr.Green to places beyond the comfort of his home and leads him to discover mysterious secrets surrounding his past.

Dr.Green is about fighting for what you believe in, even if things seems hopeless.

Gameplay

In Dr.Green you will experience a classic, arcade inspired gameplay. Taking control over the orphan Dr.Green you use your pea gun, loaded with powerful seeds to take down your enemies. Since Dr.Green was raised in the forest and spent a lot of time with its inhabitants he has learned the ability to double jump to be able to keep up. Double jump will prove to be a good quality on his journey and a key to progress.

  • Controller Support
  • Rebindable keys for keyboard

Dr.Green have 8 levels in total, each guarded by a boss, more or less important to the story. All levels have a new element or a new enemy introduced, carefully created to fit the area they are in and often inspired by previous enemies's behaviour to give you a nice and smooth, but still, challenging experience.

The game is not created in the mind of giving the player another game to blast through. I wanted to maintain the horrible, yet enchanting difficulty old platformers like Megaman had. Rewarding the player for getting to know the enemy, their movements, how the levels work, finding the timers. The game is constructed in a way that everytime you game over, you do it knowing something new about the obstacle and get you closer to the finish line.

The gameplay is not always entierly linear and there are levels that provide alternative ways to mix things up a little and also encourage the player to try other ways to gain time or find more score.

Throughout the level you will find seeds that you can collect, these will give you score. You will also find caged animals, that award you when freed. Depending on your final score, you will get different endings.

Music

The music, made by David Eickhoff, with a mind to create something unique and modern, fitting for the game, but maintaining a retro tone. The OST will be available as an option when buying the game, with the additional expense going directly to David Eickhoff.

Dr.Green is a game that has grown in my mind for a long time. I discovered only recently that I could do this on my own with the help of today's modern tools, easy even for a non-programmer like me. There have been setbacks and bumps on the road, but I hope it will give you as much joy playing it that it was to me creating it!
