Path Based Lightning

Nocturne Assets

You must be logged in to obtain assets


This is a path-based lightning system that uses some self-contained scripts to create fantastic looking lightning and laser effects.


  • Simple scripts that give complex effects
  • Highly customisable
  • Draw script can be used on ANY PATH, not just the ones created as "tentacles" in the demo
  • Includes simple path collision script that can also be used anywhere
  • Expandable - you can add custom sprites/forms to the draw script to personalise your effects
  • Lightning can be created dynamically and also deal "damage" to instances (examples shown in demo)

The demo project shows various different usages of these scripts and the different effects that can be achieved from very minor tweaks to the input values.

You can download the demo project for testing before you buy here: http://bit.ly/tentaclesdemo

NOTE: This currently does not work on the HTML5/JS targets, but is fine on all the rest. It should work with WebGL enabled, so I am investigating if this is a bug or not and will update if it can be fixed.
