So, my idea is Super Puzzle Fighter focused on versus.. but not not "split screen" versus, one screen, pieces coming from the left side are controlled by player 1 and pieces coming from the right are controlled by player 2. The player has to dodge the other player pieces (or not, that depends on your strategy) and match pieces to damage your enemy. Players have life bars like a fighting game, and I'm thinking about adding characters.. of course there will be power ups.
I'm on a weird situation right now, I just moved to a new city and I have only a MacBook at home to work with no Internet.. Unity3D sounds like the easiest way to make something cross platform right now (I'm accepting suggestions for that).
Local multiplayer for now.. if I have time, I'll try to add online support.
And that what I'm going to do.
This took a lot more time than I was expecting.. and it's still full of bugs and lacking features, but some feedback would be nice.It actually plays more like Puyo-Puyo then Super Puzzle Fighter, you have to match 3 gems of the same color to break then.
If the player pieces collide, they'll stay in place until someone uses their pieces to break them, that'll make the pieces change color and fall, giving MASSIVE DAMAGE to the opponent.
If your gem stack enters the red area, it'll break and you'll loose health.
Like most puzzle games, you can see what your next piece will be. It's the piece being showed at the top, and it will be given to the player that finishes his turn first, it's the most fair way I could think of to distribute the pieces.
For now, the characters are just aesthetic, they'll each have a different special move in the final version.
The power ups for now are a life regen (self-explanatory), teleport (teleports your piece 7 spaces ahead or the most it can) and a shield (creates a barrier of gems in front of your pieces, thinking about changing this to a special move, cause it might be too strong).
W -> go up
S -> go down
D -> go foward
A -> rotate piece
F -> use power up
G -> use special move
UP arrow -> go up
DOWN arrow -> go down
LEFT arrow -> go foward
RIGHT arrow -> rotate piece
SHIFT -> use power up
ENTER -> use special move
It's done, now with a single player mode, power ups and a special move for each character!
