A downloadable game for Windows, Linux, and Android
SPIKE is a 2D puzzle-platform game developed for the Video game Design and Programming course at the Politecnico di Milano.
Each level of SPIKE consists in a 2D scenario completely free from obstacles or enemies, where only the main character, the end-level flag and eventually some platforms are present. Goal of the player is to place the highest number of deadly obstacles possible in the stage, choosing from a given set that is different from each level, without getting the character killed. The highest is the number of obstacles put in the level, the highest is the final score, that can vary from 1 to 3 stars.
The main character cannot be directly controlled by the player, but instead he will move accordingly to a specific pattern that will be shown at the beginning of each level. The player must choose carefully the position of the different obstacles, since once that the Start button is pressed, it is no longer possible to change it anymore!
Things may appear very simple at first, but gradually the combinations between obstacles increase in complexity and the levels turn into very messy puzzles!
