Pirate's Arena [iOS/Android]


  • Posts: 326

Hello guys!
I'm developing a new game and I wanted to know what you think!

The game will be called Pirate's Arena (I have not decided 100%)
There will be 3 game modes:
- Endless Single player
- Multiplayer 1 vs 1
- Endless Cooperative Mode

The gameplay is to survive and resist the waves of enemies as possible.
Every 3-5 waves there will be a level boss.
The difficulty of the game will be growing.
I will add more features in development.
The game is still in development, and I have yet to resolve several bugs, as you can see from the videos.
Criticism and advice are welcome!

Looks good from the video! Captain false is a pretty tough opponent.

More features would be nice. I can imagine things popping out of the grates. From the video, sword-fighting looks pretty simple. I'd think there should be more variety in combat, opponent AI types, etc.

One of the best I've seen here.

Several positive aspects:

- Screenshot
- Succinct explanation about the game.
- Short Videos
- Good color palette.
- Aesthetics with patterns harmonics.
- Good animations.
- Good music.
- Good sound effects.

Now it's a matter of objectives, challenges, prizes and fun.

Thanks guys for the positive comments!
The game is still in an early stage of development.
You see those tentacles, suddenly and random moments, they go out and hit the player.
As soon as I will have added features, I will post some updates!
If you do, give me more advice!

Added "dust"sprites and little update for attack moves...
The development is very slow  :(
I will bring further updates when I have more time to continue.

It seems god Grahically speaking!
But the gameplay seems also a little bit... slow? I don't know, is just a feeling.

BTW good job riki, you're improving your skills really well! ;)

Hi Havana, the gameplay is a bit slow, in fact I'm studying some gameplay alternatives to avoid a boring game.
Thank you for your compliments.

When I replay your videos on YouTube at 1.5x speed, the game looks more exciting and fun.

Graphics are very good but the game looks so slooooow... for a fighting game, it's a real problem... try to up the overall speed and balance the gameplay and it will be great. You're onto something ! ^^

I increased the speed of the gameplay.
There are still many bugs, I will correct them later.

Really like the look of the game, great art. I feel the gameplay looks a little sluggish like the others have said. I think the attacks need more impact, maybe when you press attack you dash forward a bit and there is more of a flash/swipe form the sword. The main thing you are doing in this game is hitting with the sword so make that feel as fun and satisfying as possible.
