- An engine containing a garbage collector to avoid memory leaks during development.
- Use the microphone for certain powers.
- Use of "gestures"
- Visual effects (explosions, earthquakes, meteor streaks).
- Use of dual-screen 3D (thanks to the ulib).
- Sprites more than 1200 on the screen.
Meteora is a game of planets or attack them. You control one of the two planets and sending mana, your goal is to ensure that the life of your opponent reaches 0 before you.
You and your opponent have:
- Mana (to use your powers).
- A shield that regenerates constantly.
- Clean energy for your planet.
Whenever you send an attack toward the top of the screen, your opponent will receive it (the planets can be separated by several light years). Your opponent can turn your attacks as you could do, ie using his "god powers".
So you need to send a maximum of attacks toward your opponent while trying to stop the attacks from your opponent.
Your planet has a certain amount of mana you regain all the time. To deflect, destroy the enemy attacks you can free some by pressing up or down.
Your stylus acts as a magnet to which you belong. The more you're ready for a ball of mana, the more you attract, the more you are away, your pen is less effective. Keep this principle in mind as you play. To successfully send an attack so do not give a boost with the stylus but with your attack.
The powers of god
You can at any time use your powers of god by pressing L or R. However, you should have enough mana and respect the cooldown (cooldown). god god picture picture power power
Some authorities require additional action on your part as the creation of glyphs or a breath.
The list of powers is quite long, It is suggested to see the list of powers in order to have more information about each of them.
You have by pressing L or R a veritable arsenal. Here here the list of powers and their effects.
Sends a burst of meteorites toward your opponent. A formidable weapon, the more you use, the less its cost and its cooldown will be important.
You can direct your attacks with your stylus.
These attacks will load at progressively. 10 to 15 seconds and the size of your maximum mana. Leave no respite and send that kind of monster on your opponent.
Merge the different types of mana charged them, they swell more quickly. Remember also to bring them back to your planet to "grow" your mana.
The attack shrapnel explodes at the slightest touch with an attack of your opponent. Necessary to decimate an opponent's attack or to create an effective defense.
Combine this with a charge attack to make it even more effective. If you manage to merge multiple shrapnel them ... can become your ultimate attack.
The Wind God
The wind god can repel enemy attacks or send more efficiently your own attacks. When you enable it, you have limited time of use (available icons in the upper right corner of the bottom screen). If you blow on the Nintendo DS while the icon is visible, your breath will be transmitted in the game and it will move many things.
Be careful not to hyperventilate;). The more you use, the more charging time is ... along.
When you activate this spell, you will make a glyph in a limited time. To do this, we must touch the yellow symbols before they disappear. We must also ensure that nothing touches a symbol for the invocation of this spell. If you manage to do it right, whatever is on screen will be yours. If you make during an enemy attack, this attack will be in your possession. Free to you to return it to your opponent or to draw him into your world to get the bonus mana.
If you have trouble at first, use in conjunction with the god of wind, so the game bottom of the screen is blank during the execution of the glyph.
You can increase the maximum speed of mana and mana gain. Do not neglect this kind of power, they can really play a big role in the game. Beware though, the more you use, the more it costs.
