Next Probe Ability: Hover Platform

Hello again!

These last days have been filled with more packing and cleaning of the apartment + work and family so there has not been much time left for coding, but I still managed to squeeze in a few hours here and there on the project resulting in todays blogpost.

The Hover Platform

The hover platform is the next ability for the probe's explore mode. It is used in order to reach places where you could not jump up before. At first I made it possible to fly around while standing on the probe, but I soon realized: When the player research and build the hover platform, they will be able to reach everything in the game, and thus removing a lot of puzzle ability to the game. So in sake of making things challenging for the player I decided to remove the flying mode.

Here's the youtube video showing of the hover platform:

Until next post!

  1. Perhaps adding an upgrade that allows flying probe (while you stand on it) for a very limited time could be an option?
