Robot Ops Character Showcase: Bolt

Bolt is one of 4 playable characters in my upcoming game Robot Ops. Like Gnarlos, he is a Melee fighter. However, he differs from Gnarlos in two key ways: his sword can attack enemies all around him, and his abilities are Passive abilities instead of Active. He's also the first character I've introduced so far that does not have a Dash attack. Instead, he is able to Double Jump, making him a great character for moving around the map with ease.

  • Melee attack locks onto enemies
  • Passive abilities assist him in battle rather than changing his primary attack
  • Double Jump

Standard Attack

In addition to his standard attack, he has 6 Passive abilities. Passive Abilities drain Magic when in use, and some drain more than others. All of Bolt's abilities recharge Magic twice as fast as it drains.

Virtuous Circle

Virtuous Circle
  • Star Bolts spiral outwards and damage enemies on contact
  • Helps damage enemies out of Bolt's reach
  • Best to have active before starting a battle against several enemies
  • Good all-around damage and coverage

Royal Guard

Royal Guard
  • 5 Gems encircle Bolt
  • Gems damage enemies on contact
  • When Bolt is damaged, a Gem takes the damage instead
  • Bolt is immune to all damage while Royal Guard has at least 1 Gem active
  • Gems recharge in 4 seconds after being used to absorb damage or attack enemies
  • Essential if low on health or when entering a busy area

Rising Waters
  • 2 Waterspouts deal constant Water damage to any enemy caught in them
  • Enemies making contact with either spout are slowed down
  • Great for clearing enemies above or below Bolt

  • Shields deal massive damage to enemies on contact

  • Great balance of high direct damage and area-of-effect damage

  • Fire and Hail fall from the skies!
  • Deals both Fire and Ice damage to enemies
