Adding Idle elements to Star Blaster
So, we start from the current title first and foremost to see what we have. Star Blaster is a simple shooter. Players become Hero Stars to battle the Star Catchers that are trapping and kidnapping stars all over the galaxies. Playing a variety of levels, the Player must take on the hordes of enemies while avoiding capture themselves.
Merging Idleness into the game
Now, we’re taking the game in a new direction! We’re creating a main Star producer that will create Star Heroes and soldiers on command. Epic battles await, hundreds of soldiers will be lost all for a sake of entertainment. Mayhem and madness on screen, explosions and bullets everywhere!
We’ve taken the simple click, and stuffed it with power to create this epic Idle Shooter.
The Idle Games
So here we explore what exactly makes up an Idle Game so we can understand how the elements have been added into Star Blaster to craft a new, exciting and quite unique experience from what was present before. The games themselves consist of the player performing simple actions repeatedly, usually to gain some currency or points; thereafter they buy updates or upgrades to increase the efficiency of performing the action.
Idle games seem perfectly tuned to a never ending sense of escalation and progression. The lure is that the upgrades that seem so far away and unattainable become quickly available. This feeling of upgrading infinitely creates an insatiable rush for power.
