|Guide a magic orb, floating in the sky, on an adventurous journey across floating dreamscapes and underworlds.|
|Platform: ANDROID||Release: as soon as possible|
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.
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.
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.

You need an Android smartphone with good graphics performance and big screen (or a small tablet).
|The dreamy worlds in this blowball galaxy have been haunted by an evil plague||Darkness creeps through and hostile hordes spread out|
These mysterious fireflies keep a secret
The legendary Light Force
In one world lives a wizard
who constructs a magic orb
equipped with extraordinary powers
||To venture an epic journey|
The orb is not defenseless
It can shoot little plasma balls
Runes enhance the orb's abilities
and provide powerful spells
There is a non-linear upgrade tree
Spells summon thunderbolts, meteors,
defensive fields, black holes, and more...
|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.
