Platform jump, skill attack, and Lost granny
As a horizontal version of adventure action game, “black water fantasy” naturally needs the classic platform jumping playing method. How to pass through many levels and finally complete the task under the obstacles of shrem and spikes will be the main content of the game. Players will also face different environments, such as the pursuit of large-scale SLM, shuttle by wooden boat and so on.
At the same time, with different skills, players can defeat the invading shrem in various ways, or skip the spikes all over the map in a highly skilled and ornamental way.
In addition, in order to help Granny move forward together, you must also master the skills of losing granny. This “black water fantasy” has its own unique playing method, which is both interesting and challenging. I believe that different players can produce a variety of interesting pictures.
Hidden stars, skill books, elite Monsters: a challenging Adventure
In black water, it’s also interesting to collect elements. In addition to the common stars that need to be used to open the door, there are also transparent stars hidden in every corner of the map. If you don’t look carefully, it’s hard to find them. They are often hidden in a place that seems hard to touch. If you explore more and try more, you will get some unexpected results.
In addition to the transparent stars, some skill books also need players to acquire some skills. There are 33 different active and passive skills waiting for players to discover. They will greatly improve the clearance ability of players. And some elite monsters perched somewhere on the map are also waiting for the challenge of players.
This work has a certain degree of freedom in exploration, even if you don’t get the transparent star, skill book or beat the elite monster, you can also pass the customs. For different players, it is worth experiencing from easy to difficult, from customs clearance to total factor collection.
Two years of continuous development and optimization of the game screen
As a work independently developed by one person, “black water fantasy” has never lowered the requirements for pictures. From the early screenshots to the pictures now on-line, we can see that in the past two years, Devbox has been exploring how to present a more beautiful and characteristic picture to players, including the change of tone, the design of characters and the movement of water in the game And so on.
I believe that Devbox’s efforts in this game can be felt by the players.
