Description

Retro physics based rhythm-puzzle-platformer where you guide cassette tape ‘Mix’ across a fully reversible 2D world of A-Sides and B-Sides, completing puzzles as you progress to find the perfect beat.

History

Super Mixtape has been in development since February 2015 and has gone through multiple iterations before reaching this point. The game is nearly ready to show the public after showing a prototype level at EuroGamer (EGX) 2015 in Birmingham where it was well recieved.

Features

  • 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.
  • The 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.
  • Puzzles – Using the mechanics of playing as a cassette tape and the core mechanics of the game, you can navigate across puzzles that have been developed to teach the player through ‘play’ as they progress through the levels, giving a high reward factor to completion.
