5 Beta : Puzzle game with nasty images in it.
I'm very happy to announce you, that the very first version of 5 is finished.
Well, what is 5 ?
5 is a little puzzle game made all by myself.
I know that I should working on a Dungeon Guards instead. But I thought that would working on a small game before would help me practicing game coding.
And you know what, it did.
So here it is.
5 is a board game where players have to place token with colored number on it.
Only tokens with the same value or same color can be placed side by side. The goal is to clear the board, with lines or column of tokens.
If you're already are puzzle addicts, you should already know Alchemy. It's a little bit similar. But there's some twists:
First, making lines and column reveal parts of an image. And images are more and more interesting as you progress in the game (if you know what I mean). And there's also bonuses, as the "magic 5" who clears a line and column automatically.
Player can discard up to 8 token during a level, if the player discards more than 8 tokens, the game is over. But the player can discards bonuses as the star token and the magic five. If the player stack 3 stars, the stack will empty itself. If the player stacks 5 "magic 5" bonuses, the stage is completed.
So as you can see, rules are simple, but there's different ways to achieve a level.
And one big plus :
The game graphics are entirely customizable. You can also make your own levels very easyly with the small tool provided.
Beta version will have : 5 levels with 4 stages each.
plus, you can always add levels of your own, and share them.
Beta is not public , unfortunatly.
But if you're interested testing it, drop a comment, and I'll send you a link to the game.
Beta will be available as soon as the "official message board" will be online.
Here are some screenies :
Than can happen...
Custom level !!!
