    Hi everyone,

    Here's my 2nd game that I recently published and I just happen to discover BuildBox forums after for a very long time, Haha. I thought i'd share it with you guys on here rather than anywhere else since it was created from BuildBox. Wanted to try something different this time and came up with this:

    • Single tap to activate the trail of scales to reach the end-point while avoiding obstacles.


    Gameplay



    Screenshots

    Available only on iOS for now:

    Any feedback would greatly be appreciated it!

    Thanks man!
    I wasn't too sure about being with a publisher, I was kinda doubting the whole game as to who would take part of this style of gaming.

    I love this game.
    It’s very unique. I saw it on TouchArcade a few days ago.

    Great work.
    How did you get the characters to do that?
    Very clever stuff.

    Good luck.

    great job @helloitsme . How did you create the waving things at the bottom? And how the particle circles, rotating in 3d? Did you create 3d software for this?
    Good idea and good look u use for this game.

    The 3d circles are gifs, and the flag effect was used creating the seaweeds at the the bottom. Thanks for the positive wishes.

    So the gifs didn't cost the game a lot of CPU power @helloitsme ?

    I used Motion 5 to create the model & animation then exported the video. Then used Giphy to convert the clip into png images.
