Gameplay


Goal

It's basically like an easter egg hunt, 10 golden orbs are hidden around the starting area which need to be collected before being able to proceed to the castle. Some of the orbs are hard to find, so some reach up or in will be needed to grab them with the Hydra wand.Once in the castle, there's another 20 golden orbs to find. Collecting all of these will open the gate to pick up the JETPACK HANDS (like IronMan) which allows to fly around the world.

Controls

One Hydra is attached to the chest and the other one is used as a joystick walk forwards and backwards. The camera is fully controlled by the head and the body, so it's necessary to literally turn around to walk in the wanted direction. It's been tested with some people who got motion sickness in other demos, and they didn't feel any with this one.
