Hold The Throne was creating for the Weekly Game Jam 150 taking place on itch.io last week. The Theme was ‘You’re The Enemy’ I interpreted this as you being able to cause damage to the player, just as enemies can. I decided to go with the idea of your projectiles bouncing and wrapping screens. These projectiles could hit you in the back and damage you similar to an enemy. You can play this in the browser for free here.
Decided to look into the potential for a Dual Shooter sequel, this time developed with mobile in mind instead of being ported later. The prototype is being developed for android, the video shows the use of the accelerometer and touch screen to control the ship.
Kid Icarus finally got a revival, it’s move to 3D was drastically different and a lot of fun.
I never really got into the original Kid Icarus partly because I was awful at it, either way until Super Smash Bros Brawl I never would have imagined how much of an important IP the game was. Pit was one of my favorite characters to play as in Super Smash Bros Brawl. I was originally quite skeptical because I had never really ventured into the genre of on the rails shooters apart from Lylat Wars on the N64(which I loved), and also the line Pit said in the trailer “Sorry to keep you waiting!” IT’S BEEN 25 YEARS PIT! Anyway on with the review.
