Casual Game Concept

Casual Game Concept

The typical nature of the game play is to fight your way through hordes of enemies using many different attacks to overcome diverse types of enemies. Each player will have a special attack dedicated to that character, which will in effect have special outcomes towards different enemies. The objective of the game is to try to fight your way through various difficulties of enemies and get to the end; which will then tally up the amount of kills you got within the time limit and added to the High score table.

You play as a twenty one year old homeless brute who is trying to find his way in life using his “fists”, fighting off old gangs and people he used to associate with. The game is set in the streets of London in the year 1996. The Genre is a “Beat ’em up” fighting game, the player will be controlling the character through an avatar and will be played on a side scrolling platform, similar to the ‘Streets of Rage’ franchise.  The player will view the game from a side, so the player will be walking left or right to get to the destination.

There will be a few different game modes to be played within the game:

Time Limit – Try and defeat as many enemies as possible in the time allocated.

To the Death! – Only 1 life, try and defeat as many enemies as you can.

Power: Time Limit – Try and defeat as many enemies as possible in the time allocated, can use power ups.

Power: To the Death! – only 1 life, try and defeat as many enemies as you can but you can use power ups.

When playing the game there will be items to find and collect which will be unlocked in the menu if found and can be used in game, items can include weapons, armour, clothing, power ups and new attacks. There will be 2 types of leader board for the game, one of which is just a normal leader board and the other is for the power game modes.

The game will be played on web browsers or even be made as a Playstation mini game or a Xbox live arcade game.

The concept I have come up with fits nicely in the casual game category due to a few different things. The fact that the game has the replay value, it is not just one game mode, there are many and there are also unlockables and leaderboards which will make a casual gamer come back and play again and again. It will have simple controls and can be played easily and quickly with the Time limit game modes.
