Second public release of Dromos. A lot of UI improvements.
You control your character using a keyboard and/or a mosue. I prefer the keyboard:
What does the attack bar do?
It allows you to choose how many energy points you will spend on your attack. The more the deadlier.
And how do I attack stuff?
First, you select a target from an adjacent tile ([Tab]/Target button), then decide how many energy to spend on the attack ([Q, E], Attack bar) and then press ([X]/Attack button) to land a hit.
Now I've got it going. What do the colored blocks on the tiles mean?
Each tile may (or may not) have a special effect:
You can get the tooltip if you hold the CTRL button and mouse over the tile. For example:
Acid! I was going for the green ones
Well, it only lowers your defence while you're standing on it. Basically just the inverse of blue ones.
So if most of these guys are on spikes, will they die if I just wait?
Yeah and they also leave you some energy to pick up and restore your pool. You can even push them on spikes, if you have Push module equipped. One day I will add an achievement for that.
Nice, I am starting to get the hang of it... Wait, modules?
Yeah, after you press "Skirmish" you get to the screen where you can choose between different arenas, character classes and buy/equip modules
If you're starting with module equipped it can be used in game after pressing corresponding key, from top to bottom: [P]ush, [R]egenerate, [I]nvisibility, [O]vercharge, [M]ove
Or you can loop through them with [Shift] and then use ([Z]/Use button)
Have fun figuring out the rest from practice, coming up with best strategies and class/arena/module combinations. Looking forward to see you on the Champions page!
