action adventure
game
Guide a magic orb, floating in the sky, on an adventurous journey across floating dreamscapes and underworlds.
Platform: ANDROID Release: as soon as possible
Varied gameplay
A mixture of: slow-paced action ☯ fast-paced action ☯ exploration ☯ puzzle solving ☯ mini games
Innovative touch-screen control
Control the orb with gestures on your smartphone/tablet's touch-screen. Float through the worlds and fire plasma balls - all without a virtual D-pad (which is optional available). Draw gestures on the screen to cast magic spells.
Behavior-based entities
All creatures in the game keep their unique behavior. This behavior adapts to their current situation (line of sight, terrain, health, etc). Movement and actions are generally unpredictable. "Bosses" don't act in traditional fixed patterns. Take the time to study their behavior. You can take the time. There is no rush. And you always have the option to escape from a boss, recover, and come back later to try again. So it's kind of gemütlich*. But this doesn't mean it will be easy.
Perma-mess
There is a mild form of perma-death  to enforce carefulness and suspense. If the orb is destroyed, you will loose all upgrades which you don't have made permanent. The good news is that upgrade-powerups spawn more often at the start/restart and progress of completed worlds & solved puzzles can never be lost.
You can choose between four difficulty modes. If you choose to play "casual", there will be no perma-mess at all.

GAMEPLAY

- Wage challenging dogfights
- Explore dark caves and vaults
- Unravel tricky puzzles and mysteries
- Accomplish "mini games"

Floating Sky is a gemütliches* action adventure. There are no rushing elements, like time limits.

The gameplay is a varied genre mix which combines core elements of 2D action and adventure games. Strategic skill is required to choose upgrades and invoke magic spells wisely.

But it's not always gemütlich*. At times when the orb is attacked by multiple enemies, the game will be hard and challenging.





* "gemütlich"   Untranslatable German term for relaxing fun
