Cloud Jumper: Vertical Scroller Game Art for iPhone and iPad
Sometimes you hunt monsters, sometimes the monsters hunt you!
This vertical scroller game has a cupid character with a few animations, some cloud platforms for him to jump on, and a monster or two to spice things up a bit.
Semi-transparent clouds float in the background.
Suggested Game Play
The concept is a vertical scroller: the Cupid character needs to jump from cloud to cloud to keep within the screen area as the clouds scroll down.
There are three types of clouds.
This lets you have several types of platforms. For example, one could be stationary, one could be movable, and the third could be “breakable” and fall away after Cupid lands on them.
Of course, there is a monster to shoot!
Actually, you get a bonus monster since Ray requested a rotatable monster right after I made this pack.
There are also three semi-transparent cloud shapes included. These are meant to go on the background, which should be a plain blue.
Alternative: Ray used this art in a side-scroller where Cupid must make it past monsters hanging up by the ceiling (the blue rotatable monsters). He had the monsters shoot laser beams at Cupid if he walked into their line of sight.
The color blue I used for the background is #62B7D6.
