Super Mixtape in development

Super Mixtape FEATURES

A handful of unique mechanics within Super Mixtape

World Flip

whereby the player can flip the world, like a cassette, letting them play forwards and backwards. A mechanic that tackles the ‘depth-element’ within 2D games. The ‘depth-element’ is often explored in innovative ways by game developers. The Flip Mechanic is the core mechanic of the game.

Jump and Physics

The jump in Super Mixtape is like no other jump and requires the player to jump from either the left or the right to gain height or distance based on the physics applied to the cassette. Supported by a considered and natural control scheme.

Tumble Mechanic

The tumble allows the player to correct themselves and rotate in the air. Challenging the rules of traditional 2D gameplay by allowing player rotation. The main character’s facial expression will change depending on his position.

Beat Switches

Being able to ‘switch the beat’ remixes the audio in the game and areas of the level will react to the change. The ‘beats’ are colour coordinated with supported differentiating patterns to assist players who suffer with colour-blindness or colour vision deficiencies, which currently effects a signification percentage of the population.
