Topic: Mechanical Marathon Demo: Urban Rush (1.0) and Briney Beach (0.75)
Yes, that's right, the demo of Mechanical Marathon's 1st and 3rd zones is here!
A few notes to keep in mind:
-The objects in this game probably will not work with Open Surge's official releases. Don't just paste an object into the game and expect it to not have errors, since my objects are engineered to recognize my characters.
-In Urban Rush, to get out of the pit you may get stuck in (you'll figure out the one), you must wall-kick. You wall-kick by pushing a wall and hitting the 'up' button while you're still pushing the wall. The idea is once you hit 'up', press down on the other direction and you'll get great momentum. If all else fails, you can just do a Jump Dash (hit jump again after a jump) and use that momentum to get out.
-The electric generators you see require you to do targeted lightning. That is activated by holding up while not moving, and pressing and holding the jump button. As you hold it down, a cursor is shown indicating where the lightning will strike. This can go through walls, so use it to your advantage! See the first picture for an example.
-While surfing in Briney Beach, you can do damage while jumping in the air. As a matter of fact, you're 'strong' while on the board, and can damage pretty much anything no matter what you do. Keep this in mind while fighting off the Jetfires.
-You can't jump in the minecart.
-Watch the Silver Metal Drones. They can slash you for damage if you time a jump on them wrong.
-DO NOT USE TARGETED LIGHTNING WHILE IN WATER. Trust me. It's a bad idea.
-Briney Beach is kind of incomplete at the moment; act 2 is very small, and it has no boss quite yet, Updates will contain this.
-Keep in mind that there are special gold and blue emblems hidden in levels that award you a nice 10,000 points each.... and maybe unlock something (or someone) in the near future!
-The barricades in Urban Rush can't be broken by the character you're playing as.
-The spring near the end of Urban Rush is activated by striking it with lightning. You need to jump on it fairly fast before it runs out of it's charge.
-You'll recognize the first boss. But don't let your guard down. He has a different attack that you probably won't expect.
-Have fun. That's the whole point of this game.
Updates to the demo are coming soon, but I'm probably taking a break from it for right now. If there's any bugs, please let me know!
EDIT: Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Try using targeted lightning on the Metal Drones. You will laugh.
