GD 2D Game Kit Level 3

Unity WindowMake a progressively challenging game using your knowledge from the prior 2D Game Kit projects. The goal of the prior two projects was to learn how the 2D Game Kit works, what are the pieces and how to use the game pieces. Now that you know how the 2D Game Kit works, put some real through and planning into your game. You can add a third level or start from scratch, but your game should start out easy and get progressively more difficult. You should guide the player through the controls and new features using the dialog boxes as they appear in your game. Rather than focusing on individual elements in the game, focus on the game dynamics and aesthetics. Develop some real themes to the levels or areas of your game such as puzzle solving, parkour, enemy fighting. etc. 

Level 3 Project Details

For a completed 2D Game Kit Level 3, your game needs the following

  • At least one new level.
    • Uses the whole height and width of the background image.
    • Uses at least 200 platform pieces.
  • Area Themes
    • It is very evident that certain areas follow certain game themes like puzzle solving, parkour or enemy fighting. 
  • Game Dynamics
    • All of the above game dynamics should be easy for the player to use and understand.
    • The level starts as a tutorial on how to work the game mechanics.
  • Game Aesthetics
    • Players should be interested to see what comes next.
    • The game should have some progressive difficulty. The longer you play, the more difficult it becomes. 
    • The game should be easy to follow and understand. 
    • The game should have a good balance of difficulty, not too easy and not too difficult. 
    • It is obvious that some thought and planning went into building the game.
