I've been toying with this idea for a game for awhile now... I just don't know how to execute all of it...
I shall explain.
You are given a set number of hearts, and are defenseless against everything. You are also given a stamina bar that allows you run slightly faster. You must survive several maps/levels until you get to the end of the game. Maybe 10 levels? XD This would probably work better if the maps were random each time, but my knowledge is only with RPG Maker XP.
Anyhoo... While you traverse these maps, there are several creatures and traps that await you. Creatures with various speeds and power, such as one really fast or one that can knock off more than one heart! Ooooo... XD The traps can do various things such as slow you down or make you unable to use your stamina bar.
I was also thinking of adding in various items that appear in the levels/maps. Like a heart item that replenishes you slightly, or maybe collectables. And maybe at the end of the game you get a score or something! Like how often you were hurt, how long it took you, and if you collected the "collectables".
I want a simple, cute story to go along with this. However, I cannot think of one. D= I thought of a star that fell from above and wants to go home, or a young maiden captured by evil wizard and has to escape his castle.
Do you have something to add? A story idea? Does this seem alright?
I just want to finish something without giving up for once...
Thanks for reading!
