Sword of Power

Hello everyone! :) 

We have been working on platformer-slasher called Sword of Power. 


You're playing as viking with electric-powered sword and you need to recharge it when it is out of power. You still give some damage though (it's a sword after all), but it'll be lower then usual. Also there're rocks falling from the sky and we plan to add more monsters if we have time. 

We're using Corona and plan to make it available for mobile and desktop. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is what we implemented so far: 

- basic menu

- level with parallax scrolling. We're using Tiled as level editor and actually for everything visual in the game (thanks to Michael Wilson from Ponywolf for cool ponytiled library and Corona Labs for videos, really helpful!)


- virtual camera with shaking when the charging platform rises. 

- skeletal animation for the hero and creeps

- some small things like particles, ui elements etc.

I also posted some updates here: https://itch.io/jam/coronadefoldjam/rate/171893

It's our first game jam and it's cool to see other projects! :)

looks great :D

Quick update: 

I think we'll have 2 levels total, because there's a lot of stuff to fix before deadline. 


The second one is basically some variation of the first one - 1 main platform and charging platform in the middle, but now with Volcano :)


I used CBEffects library with new texture for smoke, and I think the result is really cool: https://github.com/GymbylCoding/CBEffects

Wow, your art and effect of smoke look very impressive!

Thank you, if we have time we'll post some art process as well :)

I think we're almost ready, there're 2 levels in the game. To win you need to slash all enemies on the screen and stay alive. When you win the game you can see the flag with runes :) 

We also added sounds, it was really fun to record all squeaks and zombie noises, haha. 

Gameplay video:


I think it's more fun to play on mobile though, that's why we prepare on screen controls with cool looking buttons. Turns out you cannot record in-game audio on Android.

Thank you very much for reading and watching! 

Uploaded the build to itch and google play and prepared short trailer just for fun.
