NOTE: THIS IS THE 2020 DEMO OF PROTOTYPE N. IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR THE LATEST VERSION, VISIT THE SAGE 2022 BOOTH ON SAGEXPO.ORG
UPDATE: Updated demo is out under "PrototypeNIndieStarsDemo.zip". It's a more polished up version of the SAGE demo. The older upload has issues with anti-viruses, detecting it as a false positive. It is a safe file but if recommended to try the Indie Stars file if you want to play the 2020 edition of the game.
Destructive robots are running rampant across the world! Nadine, an incomplete prototype robot of unknown origin, fights to save the world while searching for her creator.
Prototype N is a run-and-gun sidescrolling platformer. The player advances through stages of tricky platforming, collecting gems, new weapons and other items along the way!
The player is always equipped with their default weapon, the Plasma Blaster, but new sub weapons can be found scattered across the stages. They each have their own unique properities and interact with enemies and the environment in different ways. Try them out!
There are three action-packed levels available in the SAGExpo demo: Hightop Mountain Round 1, Hightop Mountain Round 2 and Molten Factory Round 1!
In this demo, there are a total of five unique Sub Weapons and one main weapon! You can only carry up to two Sub Weapons at a time and all Sub Weapons share the same ammo.
It does nothing special as its the weakest weapon as its damage output is low and its range is a bit on the short side. However it can be fired rapidly making up for its weak output and its usage is infinite!
This powerful weapon can bust open tougher things such as steel boxes! However, it cannot pierce through enemy shields and its movement is a bit on the slow side. One of its best features is the ability to guide it vertically as it endlessly propels forward.
As the name suggests, Cluster Bombs explodes into a cluster of smaller bombs upon impact. Both it and its smaller bombs can pierce through enemy shields, including seemingly "indestructable" enemies. It's main weakness is the slightly difficult aim and a higher ammo consumption.
This rapid firing flamethrower can tear down enemies fast, but its ammo consumption is a bit on the quick side. What other uses could it have?
A weapon that always moves diagonally. They can do a clean constant hit through enemies and bounce all over the room. They dissipate after a few bounces.
A weapon with a very high ammo consumption. It creates screen-killing lighting strikes when it's launched into the air. Because of it's power, it's rare and only found in a secret area in this demo. Can you find it?
