The Vision

Witty nurses chasing you down sound cool? How about mean doctors trying to spin you like a pizza pie and take you away? Nothing comes your way when you master dodging and double-jumping skills!

My teammates and I are proud to present Dream Dodger. We are introducing a brand new concept to mobile gaming by bringing in ideas from the "Dream World". Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you could create amazing worlds with just your mind? The main character, Alfred, is doing exactly that!

Run in a candy-like colorful environment. Dodge the stylish furniture and enjoy funny animations all over your journey. Be prepared to slide under Nastasia and double-jump over Doc or be taken down! Collect as many energy canisters as you can and grab the refreshments to unlock double-jumps. We hope you enjoy the beginning of this great journey!

How our game will be different?

In most running games the player has to avoid obstacles but usually they are just objects like trains, boxes, pipes, bombs and so on but almost never - other characters. That's exactly what we are concentrating on! A big portion of all the obstacles in Dream Dodger are other characters. It requires a mastery of the skill to get through them but that's what makes the game more addicting - the challenges that come with it. Since the action takes place in a dream our creative possibilities are endless. 99% of the games take place in a specific location and time in history. We don't have to rely on that factor so it allows us to bend the rules that other games aren't able to. We are taking advantage of that by creating unique characters and environments. Laws of physics don't apply to Dream Dodger either so be prepared to see original and funny power-ups in the final release of the game.

Why you will love it?

Everyone likes to crack jokes and everyone likes to laugh. We will make sure that Alfred (the main character) will do exactly that! He is an old fella in a young man's body that has something to say about everyone. From funny compliments to nurses and mocking expressions at doctors, to grumpy old-man-like whining about the retirement home and things that surround him, he will have hilarious comments for everything which will add to the enjoyment of the overall experience.

GamePlay

The way you play Dream Dodger is all up to you! Whether you are a "jumper" or a "slider" we will make sure to provide you with different animations and dynamic camera angles to get you immersed into our world! The controls will stay similar to mobile game standards: by swiping your phone's screen up the character will perform a jump and swipe down will activate the slide/roll. Left and Right swipes will be used for switching lanes. We are introducing a Double-Jump which is a must-use-feature to get through the Doc and tall obstacles. We are creating unique ways to avoid being busted while maintaining smooth and sharp gameplay that will keep you immersed in the experience.

Platforms

Characters

Environments

We are working on implementing turns and elevations to the level. As you travel along your path the game will either turn to the side or you will be taken on a ramp that goes up or down. Each time a turn or elevation takes place the environment will have a different look to it. Essentially what we are doing is combining a lot of different levels together in one to give the viewer an ultimate experience with a smooth yet intriguing scenery change. Take a look at the concepts of the first environment.

Risks and challenges

Even though this is our first game but it sure won't be last. We are a group of professionals with industry tested skills and extreme dedication to our craft. We thrive on many different challenges and always look forward to amaze people with quality work and innovative ideas.
