In the previous blog post, I mentioned about how enemies move in Starsss. But what should you do if you came across one of them? It is definitely the time to strike back!
In Starsss, each playable character (yes there will be multiple characters to choose from!) will not have his or her individual array of skills. Instead, every star that you have collected will provide your character with a randomly decided attack.
This means that your attacks will change randomly every time you come into contact with a star. Does that add an element of randomness? However, do take note that not all attacks will be available from the start. You will have to unlock them through spending more time playing the game.
Enemies will flash red for a split second when your attacks hit them. This is to indicate that you are doing damage to them. And when you have dealt enough damage to defeat an enemy, you will gain experience for doing so!
From gaining experience, you will eventually reach a point where your experience bar (on top left corner, in green) will be fully filled up. And that is when your character will level up!
From leveling up your character, you will be able to make him or her stronger and better. And if you were thinking in terms of increasing the classic RPG stats such as Strength (STR), Intelligence (INT), Dexterity (DEX) and Constitution (CON), then you will be in for a surprise.
While that is still not implemented yet, be sure to check the blog every Tuesday and Friday for new updates! And as usual, you can enjoy the TwitchTV live game development stream session of adding attacks to Starsss, now uploaded on YouTube below! Cheers!
