I am tasked with creating a 2D game, but seem to be having trouble coming with something that'd be interesting.
There's not much variety when it comes to 2D. I guess I like platformers and tower defense type games, so I think I'd riff on one of those. Personally, I really enjoyed Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and The Lost Vikings. If I was going to make a platformer, I think finding things to unlock more parts of the map or controlling multiple characters/co-op with different abilities would be pretty cool. I don't know though. Doesn't even have to be a platformer or tower defense.
Keep in mind I only have 2 months to code it in a small team, so it can't be too ambitious. Currently just playing random flash games on Newgrounds to see if anything comes to me.
If you guys have any ideas, I'd love to hear them! It would also be helpful if you could link some of your fav 2D flash games or something! Thanks!
