Only One

updated Feb 3rd 2014

Game release date is this Friday February 7th 2014

ONLY ONE

Fast paced arena style hack and slash game Only One is game where you kill enemies and throw them off a sacrificial pillar in the sky with your magic sword as you gain power and abilities to ultimately become the 'Only One' left standing!

I was inspired by Highlander and Jet Li's The One

Here is the trailer




upgradable abilities and stats


mini-bosses

Love the graphics. Reminds me of an old arcade game (Think its' Motos') where you push the enemy off screen.

It also had 'holes' open up in the middle of the playing field which was a good twist, be good to do the same in your game ?

Looking forward to this, controls seem great, love the graphics. Hope theres a bit of change in the game so its not so 'samey'

Damn I have to check out Motos, get some more ideas, thanks!

I hope to add more abilities, and more enemies, IAP to either buy the game or to buy xp to speed up grinding

Looks awesome! Can't wait!
Will there be endless mode, set levels, or both? I hope there's endless replay value!

Just because nobody said anything for a week doesent mean that the game is abandoned. The game is in alpha stage already, so I'm pretty sure it won't get abandoned.

Yes! I'm here, I've been busy doing:
- an XP system (with some XP IAP for ppl who want to speed through the game)
- special abilities (plan for 6)
- stat upgrades (health,shields,attack damage, speed)
- traits or passive abilities about 8 or so (2x damage from behind, health regen, snare on hit, ect..)
- a whole user interface to tie it all together (this has taken a lot of time)
- more enemies

To answer your question:

The game will have about a 100 or so levels, random type of enemies in each, random events, but progressively getting harder.

If you die you can either restart at the last 10th level, half way down, or from the very beginning. So your constantly trying to climb up that ladder and gain more xp and more abilities as you go.

I plan on adding more enemies like wizards, summoners, rogues, a cyclops, berserkers, and anything that legitimately makes the game play better.

Variety in enemies and various ways of killing them should hopefully make the replay value better. The level itself will probably not change. It's progressive arena survival combat.

Game will probably be free, with an 0.99 cent IAP purchase to unlock the last half of the game and for buying additional XP if you want more abilities to play with, without grinding for em.
