The demo release of Amp, Watts & Circuit edges ever closer, as do some new videos, so I thought I would post some beta gameplay footage and go through a bit of a tutorial so you know what to expect!
The video of all of the robots sitting at their desks is the start screen to the game. This screen takes you to the zone and level select screens, which aren't shown here.
As you can see from the first level shown in the video, you must first click on the icon at the bottom of the screen to select the robot that you want to move, then click on the tile that you want him to move to. Something to note here is that the robots will always take the shortest path, even if there are pits or traps in their way!
First, circuit moves across some purple tiles, these are one-use so they disappear after they have been used. He then stands on a yellow switch. The switches will open all doors and lower all spikes of that colour, in this case yellow. This opens the path up for Watts.
Watts stands on a red switch, lowering the red spikes, allowing Circuit to move to and power up a plug. Plugs can create new platforms, opening up new paths for the robots. Amp then runs across the new bridge to his end-goal.
From there the player just has to get the other robots to their end-goals, and they have completed the puzzle! This is just a simple puzzle compared to the dangers they will face in later levels, but it gives you a quick idea of how the game works. Updated videos will be arriving soon, showing the animation and artwork that is now in place in Amp,Watts & Circuit!
There will be a demo of the game released very soon, so make sure to follow Amp, Watts & Circuit on IndieDB, and join in the fun on the AWC group, where we have videos, images, free wallpapers and bonus tracks from the game!
