Axis III: Alpha Prototype 0.7

I'm in another round of implementing the feature set for the game. Wall climbing, Swimming, more diverse enemies/AI, fishing, elemental attacks, better collision, special attacks, a variety of weapons, and a complete set of Magic spells are up next. Stay tuned for updates! Meanwhile, you can check out the latest test build of the game to have some fun and provide much needed feedback.

You can swing a sword like a crazy person, cast a few spells, attack simple enemies, jump off of explosions, upset plants, and snag a key that doesn't open anything! Interested? Check it out after the jump and let me know what you think (FYI, it'll break my Blog's feng shui. The game is 1024x576. It also includes sound~)!

- Note: Click on the game screen to get focus first before attempting any controls!
- Use the Arrow Keys to move, UP to Jump, DOWN to Crouch
- Tap A key to use a combo attack (ground or air)
- Hold A Key to charge a skill (not implemented just yet)

  1. Hey Mars this is Brandon and I have FINALLY gotten around to playing your game even though i promised myself I wouldn't lol But its actually pretty cool. Didn't know you had sound effects and ambient background music. The car sounds are hilarious because they make absolutely no sense. Feels like you're wondering around in a mystical back alley somewhere lol The only thing i would say i have a problem with is the run button being shift. Doesn't feel right.
