GAMEPLAY

Overview

The arcade mode will emulate some functions of traditional arcade machines such as tokens, tickets, and rewards. The mechanics however will be expanded widely as this game will be catering on a bigger scale of audience.

Description
General Mechanic

Time the set of blocks carefully and when it aligns to the blocks below, quickly hit STOP.
There will be different blocks in the game. The red block will be the generic block to be played. Other blocks (special blocks) appears on certain heights and replaces the outer block or fills an empty block if there is less than 3 blocks left in the set.

Blocks

Normally, Red Blocks are the ones being used to stack up the tower but there are other blocks in the neighborhood. The other blocks will spawn randomly from a ‘mystery block’ when a specific height is reached. Each block has specific properties that will be helpful or a pain for the player.

             
  • Pink block – does not fall down even without a block below, also used on continuing a game to make a new starting point
  • Green block – slows down entire set by 20
  • Blue block – slows down entire set by 50
  • Yellow block – sticks for .5 seconds on the edges before moving again
  • Purple block – slows down entire set by 20, sticks for .5 seconds on the edges before moving again
  • Grey block – instantly increases speed by 20 – 50. Does not exceed max speed of 100

*The effects of the blocks do not accumulate on the next height level. When the set with a special block has been landed, the next set will retain the environment speed.

Block Behaviors

The blocks will have different behaviors depending on what’s happening in the game. Each behavior will display different reaction and animation for the blocks.

State Trigger Image
Normal Neutral state (while moving)  
Follow look Planted blocks looking at the moving blocks (not applicable to grey blocks)  
Cheer 1 Planted Red blocks cheering for the moving blocks above shouting ‘Yey!’ every second  
Anticipation Planted blocks reaction when the moving blocks align with the lower blocks.
Fall reaction Planted blocks reaction when a moving block falls down.  
Cheer 2 Planted blocks reaction when the moving block has landed. Blocks shout ‘whoo!’ together.

Special blocks

Overview

Special blocks appear upon reaching certain levels or by using a special block item. The player will have to tap on it for it to be activated. Activating a special block will add a random block or replace one block in the set.

Triggers:

  • Every 10 levels
  • Item use

Mechanism

  • The blocks being played will move from left to right. The goal is to align the moving blocks to the blocks below. The players can go as high as they can. The player will start from the ground level and all the way up to the sky and even into outer space.
  • Unaligned red blocks will fall down and reduces chance to fill up the tower. Speed increases as the level goes higher. Speed can be reduced temporarily by using the slow item, acquiring special blocks, or by reaching certain levels. Fallen blocks can be replenished by using an extra block.
  • When the last remaining block is unaligned, it’s game over. The player can continue his/her game by using tokens. Extra tokens can be earned in the game or bought in the shop.
  • Every 10-30 level of blocks stacked, a reward box is earned. Reward boxes contain random items such as in-game items, tokens, collectibles, and other prizes.

High scores & Leaderboard

Aside from the achievements, there will also be an online leaderboard to see which players have reached the highest peak.

Speed increase

The initial speed of the moving blocks will start from 10 and will increase as the level progresses. The maximum speed is 100.

This is the speed table for the moving blocks starting with the slowest.

Speed Table

LEVEL SPEED+
From the starting point 10
After Next 2 levels 20
After Next 3 levels 30
After Next 3 levels 50
After Next 3 levels 70
After Next 3 levels 90

Explanation:
So from the starting point, the block speed is only set to 10. Then after 2 levels (which now puts us to level 3), the speed increase will be 10. Then after 3 more levels (now at level 6), the speed increase will be 30, by level 9 the speed increase goes to 50, by level 12 it goes up to 70, and by level 15 it goes to the maximum speed increase which is 100. The speed increase will be determined on which level it began. After 20 levels, the speed increase will go back to 10 and then gradually increases again.
