Hero Slide - puzzle and dragons!

#1

Hey,

I’m making a small puzzle game called Hero Slide. Nothing too fancy but I’m about to release it on iOS and Android.

You basically slide blocks on a board a bit like in 2048, and you have to match similar blocks to trigger them. Each block type has a different effect (gives you life, coins, explodes, curses etc…). Every time you slide, you lose 1 life and when you reach 0 or you cannot move anymore… You die!

Pretty simple… Your goal is to survive as long as possible and earn the highest score.
Here’s what it looks like:

It took about a month to build while learning Defold at the same time. The Engine I found very easy to use, but of course the game is very simple. Most of my headaches actually came from the iOS and Android build and submit process. I’m happy to have experienced it and understand it better now.

Hope you’ll like it!

Update: Game is released!
On iPhone
And on google play

I planned to work on the Spine support in Editor2 last night, but kept playing “one more time” until 2am. It’s really good. F*cking dragons. :smiley:

Hey nice and fun game!

I noticed that when you’re upping your stats, at some point the particles become just a white square.

I’m adding this to “In the spotlight” on the website, so I added the download links to your original posts so that people find them more easily. Hope you don’t mind @Gozock :slight_smile:
