Game concept: Its about Inkman who saves the world of blotspot with his pen sword which he can use to spray ink , pop bubbles, absorb colors and cause enemies to slip.
Game mechanics: The game starts with the main character inkman. Inkman can run, jump, stick on walls, absorb/shoot ink colours and use his pen nib to pop bubbles that leave stamps and medals.
Spraying ink on the floor not only allows enemy’s to slip away from the player but also allows inkman to run faster to reach farther places. Whenever inkman gets hit or uses his ink, a portion of his body turns white. When his entire body becomes white, he losses a life. When all lives are lost, the game ends and the player can either continue or quit playing. He can regain his color by either absorbing the color essence from enemies or by being poured/touched by a color paint.
The goal of each level is to reach the end of the level that has a black and white picture. Choose which ink color to shoot from top to bottom as there are only five colours. If the five colours match the picture, the player earns five lives. Some parts of a level will be in black and white and inkman cannot access those parts unless the player finds a black and white picture based on the level segment and spraying colours that are based on the fragments of the picture.
There are certain powerups in the game that enhance inkman’s abilities. These include a color orb which changes the colour appearance of inkman allowing him to spray the new colour. An ink bottle which acts as extra energy bar that allows inkman to spray more ink till the bottle becomes empty And a silver pen nib which allows inkman to spray ink even further.
Some colors that ink man changes create an essence, for example if ink man is red, he can smash rocks. If he is blue he falls slower than before. If he is orange, he can splash colour whenever he lands. If he is black, his ink will push enemies even further.
Hidden in levels are stamps and medals. Collecting stamps allows inkman to send a message to mailboxes based on the image of the stamp. For example if inkman gets a one up stamp, he needs to go to a mailbox with a one up image to get a one up.
Medals are hidden in difficult areas and while its not necessarily needed to complete the game they can be used to earn more continues/lives, increase the ink bar etc.
