Spark & Sparkle is a retro, arcade-style scrolling shooter where players compete to build jigsaw puzzles!
Available now on Steam! It's 30% off during the Steam Summer Sale!
In this game, 2 players defeat monsters to earn puzzle pieces, then use those pieces to build their puzzle. The first player to finish their puzzle wins!
Spark & Sparkle has 8 playable characters, each with their own weapon and special attack.
There's powerup items and boss monsters to keep matches interesting - plus, puzzle pieces arrive in vending machine-style capsules, bouncing around the screen like a pinball before emerging from their container!
In Arcade Mode, you can play through 5 "tours" of increasing difficulty, unlocking new characters, puzzles, and stages.
In Match Mode, you can play against a friend, or against the computer. Choose your characters and set up your own match preferences like puzzle, background, and difficulty.
Online Mode has public matchmaking and Steam friend-list support.
There are over 100 puzzles, over 10 backgrounds, and 5 different visual styles for enemy monsters.
The game has full controller support, reassignable controls, and options to adjust or completely turn off the blur and scan-line screen effects.
Spark & Sparkle is Essencey's first project. In addition to challenging its players to assemble jigsaw puzzles while havoc rains down on them, Spark & Sparkle is an attempt to really capture the feeling and atmosphere of an old arcade game.
Spark & Sparkle's soundtrack is available to download for free on Steam. Check it out, here!
There's also "Spark & Sparkle Soundtrack: Extra Sounds," a second album, featuring alternate versions of some of the game's music tracks. It's available for free on Steam, too. Check that out here!
