Why does this game differs from the "classic" platformers? The answer... is within its name !
Scrolling Survivor is basically a 2D platformer. The character moves, jumps and collects bonuses.
But your main enemy is the scrolling, as it doesn't follow you, it's up to you to do so ! In addition, some enemies and obstacles will do their best to push you off the screen ! This idea may remind of Super Smash Bros.
Fortunately, your character, as long as long collect enough bonuses, has the ability to perform "Fast Moves", especially useful when you are pushed off the screen.
Graphics, Sound and Musics :
As you can see on the screenshots, Scrolling Survivor's graphics are only black, grey and white ! More precisely, the gameplay elements (characters, enemies, objects, platforms) are black with a white border, while the background is dark grey. You may also notice some graphical effects and many animations and backdrops.
The game's sounds (generated with the SFXR Sound Generator) and the musics (composées par Arachno) are quite retro, which fits the game very well.
The demo :
The demo includes three levels and a tutorial. The first one is quite easy, but the last one is really harder.
When you complete a level, the game gives you a score, and a rank (from E to A, and the famous S rank if you reach or exceed 100%). Will you complete the 3 levels with a S-rank?
Thanks to these ranks, you may be able to buy some extras with the points you collect in the game. Amongst this extras, you may find some useful tips if you are stuck. The full version will include many more bonuses !
The full version will also features some items to buy, and use in levels.
A 20-minute long fun demo is waiting for you to play it !
