Hello everyone,
we have developed new features for Ballystix, with full gameplay mechanics.

We resumed the work on the game after months of stop.
We have added many fun features to gameplay, which now begins to have a stable set-up.

New features:

BallystiX enriched gameplay guide

- vigor balls system
- autonomy
- ammo

Our antivirus hero must now be alert to the values of autonomy and ammunition.
These values can be retrieved through the 'Vigor' balls!

The small antivirus can not move indefinitely, so it needs the 'magic balls of Vigor' to increase the fuel and the electric discharges it uses as weapons.

Vigor Balls have been created by governments around the world to allow our hero to fight this war.

- power

Ballystix's thrust force, power, can be increased by killing enemies.

Ballystix can now increase control and propulsion by fighting battles.
In this way the progression of the character is more complete.

In the future you can adjust also the acceleration speed.

- skill system
- new weapons

The antivirus now has 5 levels of progressive skill, which are unlocked based on the enemies killed.
The progression of skill gives more weapons and more health.

There are 5 available weapons for now, with gun multipliers.

- enemy points
- enemy health

Now the enemies give a random score, and they have their own health system.

- additional score

At the end of a mission is given an additional score based on the factors of difficulty, campaign and skill.
