AND

FOTONICA, released on AND, iOS and PC, is a runner-type arcade game by Santa Ragione studio, known for Mirrormoon. The production, distinguished by vector graphics and extremely dynamic gameplay, was first released on mobile devices. Later, its visually improved version was released on PC.

Mechanics

In FOTONICA, the player takes control of a person running at a high speed - up to 140 miles per hour - through abstract levels made with vector graphics. The perspective from which the action is presented is also an element distinguishing the game from other similar positions (e.g. Canabalt, Vector) - we watch the action from the first-person perspective, which adds tension to the gameplay.

In terms of mechanics we are dealing with a very simple production. The character runs when you press the action button and jumps if you release it. This must be done at the right time to jump over chasms. While in the air, the player has to observe the situation all the time and press the action again at the right moment to land on the ground.

Game modes

The creators have developed eight closed levels and three infinite levels, where we fight for the best point results. The game also includes a multiplayer option for two players. Interestingly, the competition takes place on one device, in a split-screen.

Technical aspects

The gameplay is accompanied by a dynamic, electronic soundtrack, which, combined with vector graphics and smoothly changing level projects, adds to the whole unique atmosphere. It is no surprise that the title is often compared to the cult REZ. The gameplay in FOTONICA is characterized by a similar, unreal atmosphere.

Game mode: single / multiplayer   Multiplayer mode:   Player counter: 1 - 2
