Neon

Neon

Greetings world.

I will soon be unleashing a new video game upon the mobile devices, and thought I should show you all. It is called Neon. It is a drop puzzle, like tetris is a drop puzzle, but more closely related to Kirby’s Avalanche or Puyo Puyo. Every piece is a combination of two cells of different colours. Cells are eliminated when four or more are touching. The object of the game is to stack the colours in such a way that when a group is destroyed, the cells on top of them will fall into contact with others of the same colour, thereby eliminating them, and allowing others to fall into groups, etc. For each successive cascade of destruction your multiplier will increment. For each cell destroyed you receive 10 points times number of cells in the group, times the multiplier. Every time you destroy one group, or a combination of groups, the speed will increase. So the idea is to stack as large of a combo as possible to get as high points as possible while increasing the speed the least amount. It’s all about the combo’s. I may not be explaining it well enough here, but it is very easy to figure out. The game is intended for iOS and Android devices, and will include multiplayer between devices through Game Center on iOS, and Google Play Services on Android, as well as Facebook integration. This version is only single player at the moment though, with no social integration. The art is not quite finished. Each cell will appear to glow instead of looking like a solid ring, and things will be moved around some. I would love to hear anybody’s thoughts or criticisms on the game, please leave me a message.
