My PhD is made out of foam.
With his trusty backpack ready, Skip is ready to dive into a new adventure!
Inspired by collectathon platformers like A Hat in Time and Super Mario 64, Skip is designed for seamless movement across the levels with his simple yet hard to master abilities. Let's go over what Skip can do!
If you wanna get a quick rundown, here's a very helpful cheat sheet by my good friend Emi!
Skip's first dive makes him go slightly higher, while the second dive doesn't. This ability is key for combat and maneuverability through the levels, since you can stay on the air far longer than usual. Be careful though, crashing on a wall will make you bounce off it!
Use the movement keys to cycle through the monitors available, press Up to turn them into a Golden Monitor (That costs much more). Press Jump to craft and Spin to leave the menu.
And that's not all! You're probably saying to yourself "Hey, I don't need no shields to play!", well hold your tongue and listen - Shields now serve a secondary purpose...
Shields change how you play Skip completely. Depending on what shield you wield, your Dive will be powered up differently! This makes some monitors more expensive than others, but they all have their strengths and weaknesses! Try 'em all if you can, see what best suits your playstyle!
Here's a handy cheat sheet from my friend Emi again!
If you know me, there's always some more fun extras to look out for. As always I encourage you go out and find them out yourself, but here ya go!
- Particles galore for Skip's abilities!
- running dust clouds and footsies sfx because i find it really cute okay
- a dizzying continue
- a very smol fox boy
- Custom NiGHTS sprites!
- Gather all the Chaos Emeralds for a Steam Summer Sale Event (tm)
- sPINNING HURT FRAMES
- Afraid of the dark? Press Custom 1!
- Be friendly and kind to others by hugging them with Custom 2 - you can also hug back!
- No one's around to help
- Life is hard, life is stressful
- I need some peace and tranquility
- I don't need to prove myself to anyone [Toss Flag]
