Some of you may remember that last year I took part in the Flash Game Contest for developers and even got the prizewinning place! My game When I Was Young was pretty successful and I decided to replicate this experience. That’s how my new game “Frogged” was born.
According to the topic of the competition participants were expected to create something absolutely contrary to the traditional games. They were expected either to reverse classical game mechanic or to show the player the opposite side of the game world.
After intense brainstorming I decided to create “reversed” mechanic of the arkanoid genre, where your main objective is not only to destroy all the blocks on the screen, but also to do this in the predefined order. In the Frogged you should destroy blocks of the same color to get maximum points and get high rating.
The main mechanic of the game was ready for less than one week. I’ve also created 12 basic levels to show the game to the contest jury. The game performed very well and was rated 4-th in the “Single developer” category. But the most time were spend on final polishing which took almost 3 weeks after the contest.
Here are some main features of the game:
- 36 challenging levels that involves strategy to be beaten;
- Flexible achievements system (20 achievements);
- 3-star rating system;
- Possibility to control the game either with mouse or keyboard;
- Original setting that cannot be found in other arkanoid games.
