Across this series Foofe your fairy companion will have something unique up her sleeves as she can absorb shards of the Negativatron's heart to gain powers. Think it as Foofe being Tinker Bell's Fairy dust making others able to fly.
The reasons for these powers is that it will affect gameplay and make new opportunities for the player to play the game.
The first power I will be announcing is the power of Low Gravity yes, I know its been used in levels but its pretty cool when you can emit a shock wave of it sending small objects floating in the air and making heavier objects easier to pull. This will come easy at hand say players have the grapple hook they can activate the power to send themselves higher or to pull a heavy platform down to a new area or possibly send dangerous objects into the air so you can easily bypass them. With the grabinator you can hurl objects farther by timing it right or pick up heavier objects.
The powers will be activated via D-Pad so you can take a guess at there being four and yes it will be sackbot only due to if you press D-pad on a regular sackboy your emotions will react as well.
There will be a Power bar limiting the amount of uses of power so people will not spam them but instead I want the players to use them wisely as sometimes you will need a full Power bar. Foofe can only give out O so much. There will be times where you have unlimited power though.
Power resupply Via Spawn Points or a random object giving off Fairy Nectar, (the thing Foofe gets energy from.)
Through these powers and combinations of tools given with the game It'll make it easier for me to make levels play your own way as that is my goal with this series.
Thanks for reading look out for next's week blog on the second power and progress on the levels.
My photoshop skills are better but Gimp2 is what I had to use -.-
