Exactly what I needed!

This is a fantastic asset - worth every penny!! There's various types of looks you can achieve with this asset and the publisher was very responsive to all of my queries. I would suggest anyone interested in this asset to download the demo to see all that can be done.

Thank you so much Ground Effect Games - I still appreciate everything you did :)

Good Asset

The asset is a bit over whelming if you are a new programmer. The different types of lightning are easy to implement as is, a bit harder to customize. The comments really help.

These lightnings are so cool i spent 20 minutes just playing with the demo and staring at them.
Ground Effect Games is among the best creators on the MP, zero doubts about that.

Fast and easy to implement into any project.
Randomized arcs look good, and the "metal attraction" is a fantastic feature.

This review was left for a previous version of this asset.
