Hello and welcome to the latest Zazmo Arcade Pack update!
As you might remember we are working on making our updates a little jazzier and to that end we are now recording videos twice a week to track the game’s progress. Let’s talk about the highlights and then move into the videos themselves.
Bug fixes and tunes
One of the more recent additions to the game was the addition of powerups to Rob’s Adventure and Breakdown. We added these in to help spice up the gameplay and give players more things to do in round.
For Rob’s Adventure we added in some shooter favs like Multi-Shot, Power Shot and the Beam cannon. All of these are in the game now. Once nice touch is all of them scale the more you grab of the same type. You can grab up to three of the same type (at the moment) to get a maximum attach effect. It’s pretty cool and the visual will scale along with the power so you really get a sense of progression. Currently though if you grab a different type of powerup from the ones you are ‘collecting’ then you will reset with that one back to level one. We think that adds a nice element of dodging and collecting to the game.
In Breakdown we added a three new powers. The ‘other’ down arrow, the rocket and the explosion. Other down arrow causes your opponents side to drop in a head to head match. The rocket fires a cutter ball straight up into the sky that bursts into three balls on impact. Finally the explosion powerup will destroy the lowest row you have on screen.
All in all the progress is coming along well and we are getting in some good work while we wrap up the Xbox One conversion of Boss 101.
