What is DoodleTrip?Edit
DoodleTrip is a "collect-a-thon RPG" for PC and Android made by RickyG, which draws inspiration from games such as Banjo-Kazooie, Super Mario 64, and Undertale. In particular, the game plays a lot like Banjo-Kazooie, with a focus on collecting items called "charms" and magical butterflies to progress in the game and unlock new zones.
How is the gameplay?Edit
DoodleTrip is a "collect-a-thon RPG". What this means is that to progress in the game, you must explore the different zones and collect items while also battling wild enemies and fierce bosses.
There will be 9 zones in the game, as well as three boss zones, bringing the total to 12. The game's divided into three chapters called "Acts," and each Act contains three main zones and a boss zone. Your primary objective is to collect butterflies and "charms." You need charms to unlock new zones, and you need butterflies to access new areas in the HUB world. There are ten butterflies to find in every zone, meaning 30 butterflies per Act.
But collecting isn't the only aspect of the game, as there are also RPG elements mixed in! Enemies are roaming around in the overworld, and if you bump into them, a battle will initiate! Defeating them will give you "star tokens," which you can spend on consumables to use during battles. While there is never a point in the game where grinding is a requirement, it doesn't hurt to save up some star tokens, as you'll never know when you might need them!
The battle system might seem simple, but it can get pretty tough!
This video demonstrates some updated gameplay from the alpha version of the game. Please keep in mind that the game is still early in development, and things will continue to change!
