Influxion - A Rhythm Driven Platformer

The only skill you need is your knowledge of a song!


Links:

  • Click HERE to play Influxion!
  • Click HERE to view the source REPL!
  • Click HERE to view the project on GitHub!

What Is Influxion?

To fit with the theme of the music jam (music if that wasn't obvious), we built Influxion because we guessed that many of the other submissions would be music players, music builders, et cetera. We wanted our project to be different but fun to play/use nevertheless. Influxion blends the elements of a rhythm game into a less strict and more approachable platformer game.


Game Structure/How-To-Play:

  • Influxion has 7 CDs (or levels) built-in, along with many others created by players.
  • Each CD is divided into 2 parts, the platformer and the boss battle.
  • The platformer is pretty straight forward, you hit (SPACE) to avoid crashing into eighth notes, and press (X) to attack treble clefs.
  • The boss battle is a bit more complex, and is only playable after the platformer is completed.
  • The boss is constantly moving around synced to the beat and your goal is to survive it or kill it. When the boss is hovered over the left-most (red) bar, you use the (A) key to hit the boss, for the inner-left (blue) bar use the (S) key, for the inner-right (yellow) bar use the (D) key, and for the outer-right (green) bar.
  • NEW! Press (Esc) while in the middle of a CD (level) to go back to the main CDs screen.

Level Designer

  • You can build your own Influxion levels and upload them to our servers for anyone to play!
  • Just click 'MAKE A LEVEL' from the homepage and type in a username.
  • All further instructions will be on the page itself.

Further Notes:

  • All Influxion code was designed in Repl.It, and tested in Google Chrome 75 on Windows 10
  • Influxion was designed to be played on a computer, and does not work on a phone.
  • As Influxion is an music-focused game, for optimal experience headphones are recommended.
  • Play Influxion in fullscreen, if your browser can do that.
  • DISCLAIMER: We are not responsible for copyright issues in community levels as those were not created by us.
  • If a song in a community level is explicit, racist, sexist, et cetera, please let us know through a comment or on Discord (@RustyPotato#3472) through the Repl.It server.

Thanks a lot for playing Influxion! Upvotes and feedback are greatly appreciated.

really great game but in my opinion the boss battles are a bit too hard

@raghavm
Hmm. I have an idea! Make your own level through the level designer however you'd want the difficulty to be!

Awesome game, I really liked it! But I got a -98 score, I don't know whether I'm the problem or the game is the problem XD

@liltaco
XD. The boss battle is a reaction-time based game. You may have hit the wrong ones at the wrong time. Don't worry though, -98 is already better than my first time playing!

add a way to change difficulties/speeds to make it easier and harder for more or less stars.

@ebest
Hmm. I like that idea! But I think we'll postpone any more edits till after the results come out (so the judge doesn't think we're cheating or anything ;0). :)

Well done

@raghavm

@LehuyH
