So, this happened! 80s Runner is on both app stores for iOS and Android. This is my first game developed using Unreal Engine and uploaded with much effort to those stores for you. Hope this game will be interesting and enjoyable. Also I plan to add some more feature soon, keep in touch, and download it on your device.
Now I am going to tell you some stories and describe the game.
This is an infinite running game of genre arcade and running. I chose this type as my first game genre because it seems pretty easy for me in development. The point is to collect more coins and beat the high score of other players. There were a lot of issues with play centers and there are still some, but I hope to overcome them in next updates.
The style of game was chosen to be low poly to easy mesh development and materials. But with such setting this game would look badly. So I decided to add some post processing to my game, such as pixelated shaders, and glow effect of some meshes.
There are two types of traps available on your path. The first one is ‘block of lava’ that will burn you to death. and the second are ‘spikes’ that will kill you on the run. Both these traps are deadly and after that a screen of death appears with your running statistics. There you can start a new run or exit to the menu.
In main menu there are some small icons for choosing characters, opening daily loot and viewing your statistics for last run and whole game. The statistics menu is not fully ready yet. There is much space for more stats and they will be added soon. You collected coins are displayed on the middle top of main menu, and you can purchase different skins with these coins. Scins price vary from low to high and some scins are pretty expensive.
Probably this is all for now. In nearly two months I plan to add ability to complete daily quests and earn score multiplier, with higher multiplier you can beat higher scores and other players.
Als o some powerups are considered to be added soon. This can add some action to the game. But before that there should be some improvements in player movement and gravity, adding some animations to menu and character an so on. Fixing bugs yet is appreciated =)
You can download this app on both appsotres. On Android Play Market it is free to download. And on iOS App Store it cost 0.99$ to purchase. Links below.
