The Robo Squad:
Hi, I'm Password from Mini Utopian Games. The Robo Sqauad is a platformer where you can switch between three characters to complete the level. Each character has special abilities; for example, Bolt can create a shield around him, and Xoid can shoot a laser which kills enemies and flips switches. The game is very early in progress, but I hope for it to be enjoyable! This is basically my first attempt at creating a serious game, so please give critique and tips to getting better! You can play the current demo here.

Characters:

Bolt
Bolt is the main defender of the team. his abilities, Block and Shield, both have the ability to protect the player from danger. First off, his Block ability. Bolt creates a block using metal material which is, basically, just a cube. It has a variety of uses, such as pressing buttons, acting as a shield from projectiles, and jumping on it will allow you to reach higher heights. You can only have one block on the level at a time, though, as creating a block will recycle the old one. His other ability is the Shield. Bolt uses electric energy to form a bubble around himself, shielding him from any danger. However, it requires to much power, and thus while using it, Bolt cannot move. However, it is still a good ability. It can allow him to cross obstacles the other robos can't cross.


Zoom
Zoom is fast. His abilities both focus on either vertical of horizontal movement. First ability, the Dash. By harnessing kinect energy, Zoom rushes forward at ridiculous speeds, which allows him to go over long, horizontal dangers, like a row of spikes. However, it has a short cooldown, so he cannot use it again and again. His second ability, the Hover, is equally as powerful. Zoom activates the rockets on his boots, which slows his descent. This allows him to traverse vertical obstacles with ease, as his can just float to safety.


Xoid
Xoid is the third member of the squad. He is mainly focused on battle, with both his abilities very useful in combat. However, they also have other uses. The first is Laser. Xoid creates light energy in his arm cannon, and shoots it out in the form of a beam, which damages enemies. It can also hit faraway buttons and switches that would be otherwise unreachable. His second ability is Crouch. Simply, he crouches down, making him shorter. This can be used to dodge enemy projectiles and such. Outside of combat, it can be used to go through small holes that others can't go through.

Shift is a bad key, especially if players need to hold it down.  It activates Sticky Keys which is an annoying Windows feature turned on by default.

Oh, okay. I'll choose a different run key.

I solved this in a recent game that I made

here is the behavior I made: (at bottom of post)

if you don't understand it you can just download it of the forge

Darn. I was robbed. They took my laptop. I wish the games you made were saved onto your account, so you can edit your game from any computer.
Oh well, guess I'll make it again.

Sorry to hear that, hopefully it gets recovered. Sadly, hardware and software failures are not the only good reasons to perform backups. Of course, as I say that I know I'm horrible about backing up stuff, lol.

Sorry to hear that as well. I think the game has potential and I hope you continue developing it!

Oh yeah, I'm still going to continue. The game wasn't that far in development, so I can just use print screen for the sprites, and put them back in the game.
The remade version is coming up soon!  :)

There we go, it's working about the same as it once was. The NEW run key is X.

New idea I'm bored so I spiced it up a bit
Switch characters with A, S, D. Use action with SPACE.
Blue guy is invincible when not moving at all and he can create blocks. Green guy can double jump and dash, and red guy shoots and wall jumps.

interesting idea for an arcade/strategy game! switch between multiple characters with different and cool powers to resolve puzzles and face enemies the better possible way,
for example you need the robot and his blocks to overcome the firs spiked obstacle because the other hero can't jump long enough.

Updated with polished graphics, moving platforms, collectables, menu screen, and some other stuff.
Also, Dash can't dash right now due to technical difficulties.
