Dropped Alpha

Gameplay Screenshot

Dropped places the character in the role of Splash, a water droplet. Find your way from the faucet to the pipes without being destroyed.

To play Dropped, use either a,d or left and right to move side to side, and use either space or up arrow for jump.

Programmatic Changes from the prototype::

+ Added moving enemies and platforms (new script)
+ Added a death counter, and time counter (for speed runners)
+ Wrote secret level script

Level Design Changes::

+ Added 2 drop levels
+ Added 2 secret levels
+ Added 19 new levels
+ Created levels with moving obstacles
+ Created levels with moving platforms
+ Created levels with roof cling mechanics

Changes:: - Modified spinner hitboxes to be circular instead of square, this was substantially frustrating players. The goal was to have FAIR challenges, not unfair ones the player would never have been able to surmount.
