Video Juego - Cotopaxi (beta)
Cotopaxi is a Side Scroller Game that simulates the travel of a Fire Creature to the Sun. To achieve this aim the character should jump between planets using the gravity force in his favor, avoiding some obstacles in the path.
The game has been built as a didactic simulation of the Solar System, where the position of the character defines the temporal centre of the system. Based on the theory of the Ptolemaic Model of the Universe that explained the movement of the celestial bodies around the Earth, this game becomes a journey through discovering the real centre of each Solar System (where all the celestial boys get a circular movement around). Nevertheless, we consider ludology as the most powerful factor in the game.
By pressing space bar the Fire Creature should jump from one planet to another. The player must take into account the position of the Planet where he is orbiting, the rotation of the character and the position of the landing Planet. An effective action moves the character straight to the next planet, but, an imprecise jump might let the Fire Creature orbiting around the Planet until the gravity force will be able to attract him to the land.​​​​​​​
The Planets and the Sun have different characteristics affecting the scene: size, speed, position (Figure 2); making more complex identify the suitable path to rearrange the model. However, the narrative suggests that the Fire Creature is looking for the way to the Sun. Achieving this goal triggers a set of light particles emerging from the celestial bodies. In this demo, we will be presenting a set of four levels (each level simulate a different system with the Sun in the centre), the difficulty increases every time the player completes a level.​​​​​​​
The player has to arrive at the Sun, {F} before his Fire Power will be consumed, in other words, he has 50 seconds to achieve the goal. If he does not catch the Sun, he loses a life. The number of lives has been limited to three. However, since the third level new obstacles appear in the Solar System. The Water Planet {D} steals all the Fire Power, killing the Fire Creature immediately. Thus, to complete the level the player should identify the way to the sun without touching the Water Planet, that is placed orbiting a Planet very close to the Sun. In the fourth level a Fake Sun {E} has been introduced to help the Fire Creature to recover the Fire Power. The player is free to come back to the Fake Sun, placed in the farthest Planet in the Solar System, to get more time until he solves this last level.​​​​​​​
