Project: Link It Up!

Link It Up! | Devlog #3

Hi everyone!

Today I've made quite some progress on Link It Up so I decided to share it with you.

I had a lot inspiration for levels focused on platforming, though I made some puzzles as well.
I'm still testing out different mechanics but I'm also trying to use existing ones in new and interesting ways.

Here's the new mechanic I added yesterday. You can now use these switches to change states of all connectors. If connectors are red you can't attach the line to them.

For blue line I found two new use cases.

First, if you're precise enough and your timing is correct you can bounce off yourself like this:

Second, enemies can be bounced off. This requires some planing upfront but when you succeed at it it's quite satisfying:

That's it for now.
I hope you like the progress I've made so far and if you have any feedback or suggestions feel free to let me know.

Thank you all for following my devlogs!

      Hello guys! I am new to Unity3D and also new with C#. I am currently working on a 2D Platformer game. This would be my first game ever. I really need some help in coding and animation. I was able to create script already for my Player Movement. I already have the basics coded and working (Walking, Jumping, Attack, Dash). I also have an extra feature which allows the player to jump longer if he/she presses Space for a longer period of time.

      I just need help in fixing the Jump + Attack. Whenever the player Jumps and Attacks at the same time, the character will ignore the x velocity of the object and will only continue the x velocity after the attack animation.

      I'll really appreciate any help that you can give me 
      Have a great day!

      Hi everyone!
       
      I'd like to introduce you to my android game.
      Sphere Control is a simple adventure and recreation game. In the game, we move the ball. The game has currently completed 10 levels. Each level differs from the previous one and introduces new elements to the game, eg a new trap, obstacle, mechanism. Our task is to get all the crystals at a given level. We will be hindered by various traps, obstacles such as moving objects and tasks that we must solve earlier. The game is in a low-poly style.
      The game is now available on Google Play: play.google.com/Sphere-Control

      Looking for feedback from someone who has done this, mainly just to confirm that my guestimates are not way off.  I know enough to be dangerous not my area of expertise.
      Trying to budget for a custom 3D skeletal animation system with cross fading and 2 layer blending.  Context is Unity.
      My thought is someone who has done it before could probably get the core features working in some form in a month.  But by the time you factor in everything like bugs, performance refactors, platform specific gotcha's, whatever, it's probably around a 6 month job to get something actually usable in game.
      Does that sound reasonable?
