Maino’s World is a game that will make you feel like you are part of the Mario Brothers games
The game that this post is about is one of the best examples of a mashup of genres and styles, which I like to call “run game“.
It’s a well-designed game where you play a human who has to run from one spot to another. You may get stuck at times, but the game offers plenty of room for maneuverability and adaptability. If you like running games and can appreciate the fine line between fun and frustrating, then this game is worth checking out. It’s an enjoyable reminder that we need not be afraid to experiment with new gameplay mechanics in order to make our games more engaging for players. And when we do so, we’re able to bring more depth and depth psychology into our games (and score higher on user satisfaction surveys).
The game is set up like a run game, and you have to collect coins as you go
This is a very popular question and I have been asked by many people in the game industry over the past few years. The answer is no. In fact, it is an important question.
The game itself is set up like a run game, and you have to collect coins as you go. But there are no coins required for any of the levels in the run game. You collect coins only by collecting power-ups in the level itself.
Each of those power-ups grants you access to a different area of the level; you can use that area to avoid obstacles or get additional power-ups (and so on). If you do that, you win the level; if not, then you lose it and continue on.
That’s why there are no coins: they are used only for getting into new areas of the levels; they do not give additional power-ups (or any other advantage) in order to win a level, so if someone thinks that they can use that to “win” a level, then he is wrong — this game is about going through areas using items that make it easier for him (not harder for others).
And in order to earn points from levels based on how well he performs in them, he has to collect coins at locations around him without having too many coins remaining — so collecting them all before reaching those locations amounts to being “cheated”.
