Shine Gameplay

Shine is a 2D platformer game designed and built in Unity. In Shine, you take control of a one of the few surviving Lumens and unleash the powers of light to rid the world of darkness. Light Vaulting (shooting the ground below or behind you while shooting) allows you to launch yourself to new heights. In the epic battle to save your homeworld, will you have the courage and skills to defeat the Darklings?
