A downloadable game for Windows
Designed to teach Level Design concepts for a course at USC, Photonica is a platformer that requires both moxy and patience. Students groups use the base game to collaborate to identify and feature different skills, creating levels to challenge those skills.
Directly control one orb to move, jump, and collect while simultaneously indirectly controlling the arc of another which also collects as it swings around, tethered. Make the orbs collide to swap control. Beware colliding with a block that doesn't match your orb - a mismatch has consequences!
