    Hi all,

    I've been working on this new projects for a few weeks.
    As the title says, it's inspired from Captain Toad on Wii U, as I always thought it would fit well on mobile.

    Better than words, here is a video of a level to show the concept.

    Always great to see actual videos and demos! For those of us not familiar with Captain Toad, maybe you could describe what the gameplay will be like. So far it looks like it's going to be a puzzle-platformer of sorts?

    I like the clean and simply look and I like the way you've solved how to see the player when they are occluded. One thing of note, even in this low-res video I could see the seams between the grey cubes you use for ground.

    +1 Sluggy's comment.
    Looks like it's going to be a nice little game.

    The gameplay is pretty simple: the character cannot jump, and he needs to gather 5 stars in each level. Each star is like a small puzzle as you have to rotate the camera in order to find the right way to access it.

    Regarding the seem they indeed still happen in some areas, I may need to replace the cubes with quads at one point to solve this issue...

    This week I made a new effect allowing the player to walk on spheres (or walls).
    I called it "The little prince" effect ^^

    I like it. Done right you can add some nice diversity and juice to the game.
