A Classic 2D Action Platformer

Orphan is a classically-styled 2D action platformer with an emphasis on stealth, item discovery and strategic combat. As the game progresses, the player will become more powerful and gameplay will become more action oriented.

Avoid detection a cover system to duck behind rocks and other objects or use items that provide cover or distract enemies. Turning all lights off will make the Orphan harder to detect but could make the terrain harder to navigate.

Item Collection
Progression will depend on discovering a diverse range of items and weapons allowing the player to avoid, outsmart or destroy enemies. Luckily, the ongoing battle between the aliens and military has left lots of useful gear scattered across the countryside.

Strategic combat
The aliens have supreme combat abilities so combat should be avoided, but rewards await those who attacking first and disable the enemy. Throw explosives from afar or set traps.

Expanding combat
Gaining access to alien technology can change the tide of combat and reward players who seek revenge against the invaders. Each enemy Orphan encounters bears unique weapons the player can acquire and use. For example, Seekers can drop their laser guns and shield generators which contain a finite amount of energy and give the player a temporary advantage. More advanced enemies drop even more advanced weaponry.

Achievement Hunting
Replay value will come through achievements based on core gameplay elements such as exploration, item collection, stealth and combat.
