This is the first in a set of weekly posts where we will give you a unique insight into how the development of Leaf Rider is going. We’ll speak about the problems we’ve faced, the ideas we’ve got and what we’ve been up to during the past week.
Today we’re introducing a new mechanic: In Leaf Rider you play as 2 leaf characters!
Each leaf has it’s own unique special ability ranging from making it rain coins to protection from lava. For launch we’re aiming for around 8 characters that you will be able to choose from and there will be more released in future updates.
To change characters while playing you simply swipe down on the screen. Each leaf has it’s own score multiplier bar that fills up and you’ll need to switch characters regularly to get the best multiplier and improve your score.
Here is some very early footage of the dual characters in action. There is still a lot of work for us to do improving the special abilities and the multiplier mechanic. We are also looking at other ways to bring out the best of the dual characters in Leaf Rider.
Let us know what you think!
