Fight your way across the oriental world of Avalice where cats are green, motorcycles drive up walls and monster girls do most of the buttkicking! Freedom Planet is a cartoony, combat-based platform adventure that pits a spunky dragonoid and her friends against an alien attack force.
The previous version of the game had item boxes with icons displayed on their surface, and while this was nice, it had a very strong resemblance to the item monitors from Sonic the Hedgehog. So, I'm on a quest to change their appearance into something more original!
I changed the shield item boxes to be self-demonstrating. I think it makes them look rather unique, and what's cool about it is that instead of collecting them, you can take cover behind them and they'll reflect elemental attacks on their own without you needing to collect them yourself. xD So, for example, I could place a fireball-shooting enemy on the same platform as a fire crystal, and as long as you're standing on the opposite side of the crystal, you're protected from the fireballs.
The crystal on the far right is the new Invincibility powerup. In the final game, I want to make it so that collecting one keystone of every color gives you invincibility instead of a random shield - hence its rainbow appearance.
