Paul Miell is the owner of Ahavah Studio, "Ahavah" is a Hebrew word meaning God’s love. The focus of the studio is to use profits to help those in need. "Making games of light" our slogan produces an ethos of developing clean positive games and influencing the gaming industry to do the same. The 13-year-old skinny nerdish me wanted to an extent pretty much do the same thing the 49-year-old not so skinny nerdish me wants now, own a games studio and make insanely creative games. My first love for games started in the 70s playing Pong, I then upgraded in the early 80s to a microcomputer the Commodore Vic 20, this opened my mind to the wonderful world of programming. The thing I love most about developing games is the insanely creative process. My love for the retro 2D arcade style still remains.

The Prometheus Secret: Noohra is a 2.5D physics platformer and magic card battler, developed with passion by a solo developer over the last 2 years. Set using the alleged Fire Orb of Prometheus, in the temples of multiple powerful ancient civilizations with a story incorporating the battle between light and shadow, a battle for your soul.

The game delivers a modern take on retro arcade style with uniquely no control over the Fire Orb during gameplay, additionally no typical jump or fire either. A player instead relies on weight adjustment, precise placement, timing, wormholes and ultimately gravity to reach the teleport on each stage. Additionally, the player can unlock and upgrade three special abilities to help the Orb progress through the stage. The first ability to unlock is Force Push, this is not a jump as normally expected but an ability to push away from objects you bounce against calculated by your current weight and momentum. The second ability is Shield, this can be used up quickly so timing when your shield is used is important. Thirdly there is Shockwave, this sends out a powerful electric blast from the Orb that pushes objects away from you. Shockwave can be useful to push objects to help collect coins or secret keys to open hidden caverns and blocked areas.

You will find yourself playing stages many times over, experimenting with different orb weights and Force Push options to invent different routes and set an unbeatable high score. Find secret caverns, some filled with water that ushers in a complete different dynamic on the orb regarding water drag. Difficulty levels are built into each stage as a player can take the easier route through the level or take on more risk of a harder route and challenge the high score. This patient path is less travelled and would require a brave soul.

There are several boss battles per world which are played out through a magic card system (CCG). This system is designed to be less complex and heavy than traditional CCGs and creates a faster paced style of combat gameplay. Additional cards can be collected on each stage to strengthen your deck and stay competitive during the battles. The basics, 2 individual attack lanes that have an attack and defense slot. Each have counters that can be increased or decreased, as example a lower attack card could beat a higher defense card if the counter has been inflated by a specific magic card. All counters lead to a total calculated attack value against your opponent. Another unique feature is that a player can sacrifice a card in the Pool Of Bethesda to gain additional manna, leading to tough decisions.

The player earns experience points to increase their level and various token rewards after completing stages and card battles. Using the inventory, the player can redeem tokens to unlock treasure chests, upgrade the Orb, receive rare cards, unlock secret stages etc. Acquiring of ancient gold coins throughout stages and from these treasure chests will be useful in acquiring more tokens to become more powerful faster. The video teaser trailer below demonstrates the Mayan world and the some of the abilities of the Fire Orb.
Taking a harder route to earn more points, timing is all important to avoid being pieced by those moving spikes.

Below the discovery of an hidden cavern inside the Mayan temple, being filled with water the player is introduced to a drastically different physics dynamic of the Orb being affected by the drag of water. The whales you wonder...expect strange and wonderful things on your journey through time with worlds changed by powers only told in legends. Finding secret keys that unlock secret caverns is crucial to obliterate those high score challenges.
