MAINFRAME ONE is a fast-paced action-platformer inspired by the NES Classics Ninja Gaiden and Mega Man. Speed, agility and weaponry are the main focus in this throwback pumped full of tight gameplay, hyper-responsive controls and eye-popping visuals inspired by the greatest pop-culture films of our time.
This originally started its life as a simple 2-button action game for mobile but quickly grew in scope as I worked on the title over time. I began by creating custom per-object physics and collision detection to further increase fidelity and ease of peripheral input for PCs and eventually consoles. The game quickly grew beyond just a mobile game and I began the process of refactoring code to better fit more robust hardware to take advantage of its strength.
