Rising Smoke is a simple, challenging and addictive little first person ninja ‘em up where you attempt to chain-dash into flying demons above a giant pit of lava.
Created for the Blackthornprod Game Jam #3, Rising Smoke sees you stepping into the shoes of a ninja who is precariously positioned high above a giant pit of lava. You can’t fly so gravity is very much working against you, but you can air-dash at enemies, allowing you to chain together kills and stay in the air for longer.
You can dash multiple times without hitting an enemy, but each time you do then your dash distance significantly reduces. Your dash distance replenishes when you hit an enemy and you earn more points for combo-killing them with a single dash between attacks.
It’s a fun little game that’s easy to pick up and play, but still offers a real challenge as you fight to avoid that lava pit for as long as possible. The pixel art visual style is excellent and there’s a real satisfaction in chaining together a long series of kills. A great bit of first person air-dashing action!
