Ace The Wizard (WIP)

Hi. This is my first character for SRB2.

Ace The Wizard

STNDA1.png


(This is one of the 2 sprites i made of him so far)

This character is inspired by Spyro The Dragon and Crash Bandicoot (but mostly Spyro The Dragon).

He uses the 4 elements (Earth, Water, Air & Fire) to attack enemies and move around the level. His moveset consists of a Sprint, Crouch, Slide, Dive, Ground Pound & Swimming. He has passive Wall Movement; Wall Slide, Wall Jump & Wall Run.

He also has a little Fairy companion akin to Sparx The Dragonfly. They can collect and can find collectibles. They can be shared with other players by certain conditions like if Kirby inhaled Ace for example.

I’ve been working on this character for about 1-2 months, and I’ve made a lot of progress so far. So here I'll be showing progress and releasing some builds before the final release so I could get some feedback to make this the best it could be.​

The mod looks pretty promising so far! The sprite is very nice and I think we could all do with more magic/element based characters.

That being said, I'm not sure how I feel about Ace's basic spells - having all of them shoot out a motherload of the same projectile is kind of boring, if you ask me. If anything, I'd say it fits the most for Fire. I could help you come up with some ideas on how else they could work if you want me to, but I suppose I also wouldn't mind if they stayed the same.

Thank you, I would appreciate some ideas to expand the character.

All the basic spells are based on Spyro's elemental breaths, that's why they all shoot out. The rocks can bounce off enemies so it can (if I can figure out) tally up a combo. The wind isn't an attack which makes it unique from the others, it can only push enemies and objects. Fire and water are kinda the same except they both have different effects on the objects they hit, for example: one could grow plants and one could burn them.

I added a few things I should mention about the character's moveset: Ace has a shield that can deflect projectiles with a parry, and He has a unique health system that's akin to Spyro's (it can be turned off if you want to). The Shield isn't finished yet but when it does I'll be ready to release the first build.
 
Here's a showcase of Fist Slam, Shield, and The Health System: (First build release in almost an hour!)

Here's the first build of Ace The Wizard:

Note: Levels with a lot of objects may have some lag.

I'm making a Sonic game based off of my OC (in my PFP), It's been worked on for a long time, and doing both that and Ace burnt me out.

In the meantime, I'll figure out what I want to do with Ace and make some sprites.
