A brutally frustrating and rewarding classical platformer with pure and fluid movement. This game will never waste your time but it might make you break your controller... or your keyboard... or both.

Super Lumi Live v1.5.3 (Assist mode, Toll changes and lots more)



Hi,
It has been a while since the last update but I'm happy to say that there's a lot packed into this one! The biggest changes to the game come mostly from wanting to make the campaign a little easier for the first playthrough but also to provide a better speedrunning experience.

The best choice in this situation is to include an unlockable speedrun mode for the main campaign and this would be great but I feel keeping the game a singular experience instead of split between two modes simplifies the overall feel and presentation. I instead settled on two major changes to the game which I've explained in the gameplay section below.

Other changes include a few tweaks on some levels to tidy up any missed loose ends. This included ceilings which look like they could be a secret but aren't and smoothing over one or two major difficulty spikes by removing particularly problematic objects.

I also really wanted to add a number of visual upgrades to the game so now it's got a wider bloom effect, better map screen visuals and tweaks to the other full-screen effects. The biggest one being changes to the chromatic aberration from it having uniform strength across the screen to now having a stronger effect towards the corners. This is to simulate the effects of an old CRT TV.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the new changes,
Marios.


Here's the full list:

Gameplay
  • Assist mode added to the game! You can now select to have more checkpoints on the levels! The setting can be changed at any time in the map screen menu and levels completed with assist mode on are marked.
    The checkpoints now also have three different shapes to represent which mode they show up in:- circle for assist mode, square for normal mode and diamond for when the checkpoint is in both modes.


  • Almost all token toll amounts have been lowered so that they fall closer to a speedrunning type of route rather than a slower, first play through route.


Levels
  • Level 1-3 (Discs of Fury) had a ceiling altered to look more natural with the surrounding ceiling and less like a hint of a secret there.
  • Level 2-3 (Uptown). The warp portal room has a few extra knocker hopper's added.
  • Level 2-5 (Temp Work) has had a disc launcher removed just before the final gauntlet section. The launcher created a huge spike in difficulty for what was already a tricky section.
Visuals
  • New bloom type added. This type of bloom has a much wider radius and the intensity of both bloom types can now be scaled in the graphics menu.

  • The new wider bloom type tends to blow out the picture when the colours are inverted so a per level setting was added to make adjustments.
  • Heat haze effect has been added to some levels.
  • Full-screen effects such as screen bulge and scan-lines have had their beat matched scale turned slightly down mostly so that chromatic aberration doesn't get too extreme when set to a high intensity.
  • Default values for the full screen effects is now 2.0 instead of 1.0.
  • The chromatic aberration red-green-blue spread pattern now forms a triangle instead of a line which will give right most edges a green tint.
  • Also the chrom. abb. is a bit wider towards the corners of the screen.
  • Neon signs have a black backing to them for better readability. This has also been applied to the world tiles and title logo but to a lesser degree.
  • Title logo has been adjusted with the same perspective effect used for the key art. Also the background level has changed to match the key art.
  • The dash move now has a sound and white glow effect to make it more obvious when triggered.
  • Doors will now make Lumi disappear in a flash of light when entered to avoid enemies moving into you while the door entry sequence occurs.
  • Doors that have a destination will be white during the initial "ready" phase instead of starting black and instantly turning white after the "ready" phase.
  • The level end goal has been given "god rays" similar to the final exit.
  • Increased the width of the achievements window so there's more space for the descriptions.
Audio
  • Changed the music on the final level.
  • Fixed sounds starting at position (0,0) for a single frame resulting in a click sound at the start of some levels.
  • Removed end screen sound loop.
  • The static noise is muted after touching the final levels exit.
UI
  • Standing still for a few moments will now display the collectables HUD. Un-pausing the game will also show the HUD.
  • The list of saved games has had a much needed update to read better. They now have a description above each statistic and the name of the campaign is now shown on the left. This is in preparation for a new campaign coming soon as well as custom campaigns.
  • Pressing backspace (keyboard) or the back/cancel button (gamepad) while in the name entry UI will go back to the previous screen if the name is blank. The back/cancel button now also deletes the right-most character.
  • Some UI elements now display info text at the bottom of the UI window.
Map Screen
  • Land tiles no longer have a bright edge on them and instead now have a fading edge for better contrast against the paths. This also removes a lot of visual noise from the map screen.
  • Level nodes have a dark backing for better clarity.
  • Level nodes have been given the shader treatment to match the rest of the game.
  • The number and letter icons on the level nodes are larger for better readability.
  • When a UI window is displayed the background will now go darker in addition to it's usual blurring.
  • The game no longer saves your profile after unlocking a toll. This will remove the short pause caused on profiles that have a lot of saved games and/or replays.


Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the new changes,
Marios.
