Synopsis For thee synopsis I w will be describing the gam me, visual styyles of the gaame, plannin ng and so on.. I might of other thinggs. also include descriptions o
‐Look off Game I will neeed to make tthe game loo ok good and attractive, so I will have colours thatt will attract people to the gaame and to tthe advertiseement on weebsites. I willl have brightt colours and d I will use make the game in a certain waay so that it iis not too haard and not ttoo simple, I want to me make the gaame in a way thatt the player will want to keep playingg the game aand sort of addictive. Thee effects I will use will be ssimple, but effective so th hat I can keeep the playerr interested iin the game and want to continuee playing so tthey can beaat the high sccore or finish h the game. I might havee some comp plex levels heere and there so that theey actually haave to give itt all they havve.
‐Descrip ption of Game My game will be abo out a soldier that has to kkill all the en nemies, help people and complete his does not reallly have a theeme to it butt if it were I tthink that it would be probably mission.. The game d guns and d killing. It w will be about this subject because I think it is apprropriate for tthe people th hat I am aiming itt at and if kid ds were to play it also it w would not co ontain that m much violencce. I will be lo ooking into thin ngs like mapss of some games and how w they have been set out; anything eelse that will also help mee make the gaame. Gettingg feedback frrom my playyers will be good becausee then I can m make the gam me better. And If I read what people w write about tthe game succh as what iss good and bad or what I co ould add theen maybe I could do thatt because I w want to makee it so that th hey are involved in the creaation as well.. I will be keeeping other ggames in min nd so that I ccan compete with them. I also need to play the sidee scrolling ad dventuring ggames so I can get some iideas for what I can do fo or my game. In n addition if I look at som me popular good side scro olling gamess then I can ttake the good d parts away fro om that gam me and add it into my gam me. In additio on I will havee to keep a cconstant style e to the game so o that it is no ot changing throughout. FFor example the commander of the ssoldier is on most levels to o help him ou ut. ‐Start an nd End of Neeon Killer I will staart the game with easy leevels and thee commander helps the ssoldier for the first few le evels so that oncce the playerr gets the hang of it he kn nows everyth hing and doees not need aany help. In addition the com mmander is also the perso on that will ggives tips to tthe player so o that he doees not get bo ored of trying to o complete o one level thatt is easy if th hey know how w to do it. At every 5 levvels I will havve a boss level so that the playyer can be ch hallenged an nd so he/she knows that the game is getting hard der and going so omewhere.

I will be trying to o make the ggame in a way so that peo ople will be aattracted to it and would d want to kee ep playing tthe game. I d do not want to make it to oo hard and I do not wan nt to make itt too easy for the player. TThis is because if it is too o easy then th hey would finish it quickly and not pllay anymore, but if it is too haard they wou uld give up after a while. So I need to o keep a conttrast and do something tthat will make th he game challenging but possible to ccomplete.
‐Level outline The gam me will have aaround 20 leevels. I am go oing to do arround 20 leveels because ffrom the surrvey I did I think m most people w would enjoyy a game with h 20 levels so o that they ccan come bacck to it and continuee. Not to meention if the ggame is too sshort they w will complete it quickly moves on and not play it again. Also this is m meant to be an ‘adventu urous’ side sccrolling gamee and to do tthis it has to have not be adven nturous. more than 10 levels,, because theen it would n m Creation ++ Steps ‐Platform To makee the game I will be usingg a game creator which iss called splod der.I am usin ng this becau use I am familier with it and it is pretty eaasy to use. I h have used it before and I have a gam me that is pop pular as d my class mates have plaayed it beforre; they told me that theey enjoyed pllaying it and that it well and should h have more leevels on it. I ffound this byy asking my IIt teacher an nd we used itt in class, I am m using this gam me creator beecause I do n not have the knowledge and skills to make the gaame with com mputer languagees such as C++ +. This gam me creation w websites makes it easier for me to make the gam me.

Uniq que Selling P Point My unique selling p point for my game is thatt it is differen nt in all wayss to other games. The game play mes and the ffeel of the gaame will also o be differentt. It will engaage the will feeel different tto other gam player and try to m make them th hink or try their best. In aaddition I also have a web bsite to supp port the unique in its o own way. No ot all small games have their own weebsite to support the game and make it u nd are made differently. It has a uniq que theme to o match game. The levels are all set outt different an e ended up llike that and what the gaame is the ggame and a sstory line to ggo with it and say how he abou ut. Also Neon Killer has aa level dedicaated to the ttutorial itselff. The tutoriaal is level one e and explainss how the game and its m mechanics work. It also in nforms the p player or the keys and commands that you can use; it gives the plaayer some tips and helpss him or her out to defeaat monsters o or move bstacles. Myy game has a mixture of h hard, medium m and easy levels unlike other gamess which past ob are just made arou und one complexity. Also I am able to o give the plaayers a widerr variety to ggive and suggest new thingss to me the ccreator usingg the ‘add ressponse’ box on the webssite. Not to m mention thatt the websitee with the gaame will be aadded to Goo ogle and posssibly other ssocial networrking websitees. The gamee is fun and interactive because of th he 3 people w who guide th he player aro ound the game. The General, Owl and th he Wizard wh hich all helpss and interacct with the player. But th he most hat all or mo ost games havve most or some of these features, b but what I haave done importaant of all is th is bring it all together intto one gamee.

Questiionnaire Feeedback I created d a questionnaire and found out man ny things and d what I shou uld do for the game. I alsso got a few good ideas. Afteer finishing looking throu ugh my quesstionnaire I fo ound out thaat for the firsst ns more boys answered m my question rather than boys so it w would seem that, the boyys would question be able tto play my ggame or would rather plaay games. Ho owever I need to think ab bout if more girls answereed my questiionnaire whaat the resultss would be so I need to take in to con nsideration tthat they may also o like to playy the game. TTo solve this problem I co ould print ou ut more quesstionnaires aand ask the same amount off girls that alsso answered d my questionnaire. The age group m my game is aimed at nd the average ages thatt answered m my questionn naire was 15, so now thaat I know thiss I need is 11+ an to think about things that would d appeal to teeenagers aro ound the agee of 13+. In addition, I fou und out that nott a lot of people play sidee scrolling games, but I believe that iff I try hard an nd let some people play the game then tthey will imm mediately likke it because most of thee people thatt answered the question nnaire did no ot know about side scrolling games o or did not plaay it before. Secondly, I ffound out thatt everyone th hat answered d my questio onnaire playss online, gam mes and on the computer so this is good b because the game I am ccreating is on nline and it iss on the com mputer. In addition, I foun nd out that iff I wanted a lot of people e to play my game and b be able to find it in o find, for exaample when you search in Google the name school I need to maake it so thatt it is easy to dition I could d ask some o of my class m mates to of the game then itt could comee on the firstt page. In add on their webssite so then I also get advvertising for free. I could also put it o on well know wn game put it o webssites that a lo ot of people go on to. Gaame websites such as: Arrmour gamess and or Miniclips. To make the gaame easy to gget the hangg of I found o out that I neeed to make aa few levels w with nd how to plaay the game so that the p player can geet the hang o of it first before insstructions an continuiing. Also I fo ound out thaat if I want th he player to kkeep playingg the game an nd not get frrustrated then I neeed to makee the game addictive and d not frustratting. I want to make the ggame in a waay that it hard bu ut also makess the player w want to com me back and kkeep trying tto complete it. So I need to make it fun and adveenture to do this and makke it so that it has some sort of a goo od theme. So ome uggestions th hat were maade for a theme were: Sh hooting, Scary, Alien, Space and Actio on. su
