This was quite difficult to control. Nice effects and aesthetic though!

How does your submission match the theme?

The game concept was created for the Game Maker Toolkit's Game, it interprets the theme of "Dual Purpose Design", by offering the player a contained amount of mechanics (Dashing, Jumping, Smashing), which are triggered by a common Action Button, and can be deployed for either offense or defense purposes, as well as to just facilitate movement.

*when in proximity to the opponent, the camera will automatically lock towards it

  • Dash is a very fast movement, which can be used to either dodge an attack, or hit the opponent to stun and possibly push it out of bounds
  • Jump results in your Marble being launched upwards, which can be used to either dodge an attack, move around the opponent to blindside him, or even prepare for a Smash
  • Smash finally launches your Marble downwards, it can be used to avoid attacks in mid air, but it's main effect is the shockwake it creates on impact,  which stuns and pushes away the opponent if hit, and the higher your Marble is when you Smash, the stronger the shockwake will be
