Re: 2018 Game Speculation
So the Power-up is the main thing, like Steamworks or Stronghold. Stronghold, you needed to shoot the balls to destroy your "stronghold". In Steamworks, you needed to apply balls to add more steam and the gears to run your airship. Now Power-Up could mean you need retrieve a certain amount of coins to "power-up".
It is highly plausible to have the initial component of the game is to receive points from the collection of coins. What I see happening is the need to collect coins, put them in certain awarded slots, and you gain levels as you get more. Now we could all be just theorizing the coins, but it sounds good. Either way, I am certain there is going to be a task to Power-up.
last 2 years they have had climbing situation, would it be absurd to assume a climbing of stairs or platforms? it could make sense if it is a retro VG theme.
Food for thought.
