I’m currently working on the prototype for Alien Blitz spin-off
As a reminder this spin-off will be based on Alien Blitz gameplay + tower defense elements :
- Waves of enemies
- Something to defend (the teleporter)
- Buying and placing turrets to protect the teleporter
- Enemies drop money (with combo system)
- In-game upgrades for weapons/turrets
- Best score online tracking
- Hero system to unlock through story mode
Everything is working quite nicely so far, game design is ok, and the prototype is moving smoothly.
Here are a few screenshots
I think most of the gameplay will be ready within 2 weeks (of work, not counting days off), and then the rest will take a few weeks (UI, menus, release scripts, in-app-purchase, level design,…). So basically I think it will be something like 1-2 months of work, but as I have some other plans it might take longer than that for the actual (beta) release.
