Movement based on action is a concept I would like to explore for ease of play among young children. My two older children who are 5 and 3 are not great at controlling character movement in games. One game they are always asking me to play is Street Fighter 2. I think it is because the game is to the point. They can jump right in. Also they press a button and get results. Easy. So I wonder if there are games that have this mechanic that not only tell a character model to punch or kick, but that actually make the character move in a certain direction or do a specific task based on that action.
Looking for case studies regarding this idea. If you know of any games that do this please leave a comment. I mentioned developing for children but as far as the case study goes anything is okay. It is just an example I will use for reference. The rating does not matter to me.
Appreciate the support. Thanks!
