Homestuck fangame - Lost Chums - John Walk Run Jump Test 02

CONTROLS: Move with Left, Right; Jump with Up

So I improved this now : D !
John can walk, run and jump now with new animations~ When he jumps during a run he can jump higher.

Sorry, no more moonwalking.. but what you can try to do is this: you can try running from left to right and right to left in one fluent motion if you switch from pressing right to pressing left in JUST the right moment. This only works because john gets stopped when you press both buttons at the same time.. so if you quickly switch he just keeps running.

It works bugfree for me (as far as I can tell nwo), hope it does for you too...

Hope you like! comments make me happy~

More stuff concerning this:
HS - Random game concept thing General notes about gameplay

The idea of this game is based on an old 2D jump'n'run game called Lost Vikings for SNES and PC. In the first part you had 3 vikings, one could jump, one could fight, one had a shield and you had to get all of the vikings to the end of a level by utilising all of their skills. It also had extremely funny dialogue at the beginning and end of each level.
In the 2nd game two characters were added with additional skills so you had 5 characters. You never had more than 3 at the same time though. Through teleporting around and stuff you always had 3 different characters in a level. Mixing around characters like this g

there is no fixed date or anything but here is a newer version:

I'm currently working on handling multiple characters. So in the next version I'll upload we'll have john, dirk and jake with different abilities (and a more improved background and HUD as well).

Not sure if you know but here is my linklist of this: [link]
All of the art or just stuff I did so far is in that list so maybe you'd like to check it out. The comic things are scenes which will be part of the story in case you are wondering.

This is ok...
I mean the transition is pretty good, just
theres no transition while jumping from left to right

ChibiEdo Featured By Owner May 26, 2012
thanks. I don't really know what you mean though.. there is an upwards and downwards picture. and when you jump right i made it that he didn't turn around to the other side when you press left in mid air.. because I just like it better that way. Not sure if that's what you meant? other than that no idea what you are referring to..

I was refering to while the character is jumping
you can't change directions when pressing right or left
to change the Sprite's Index or appearance

ChibiEdo Featured By Owner May 26, 2012
ok so I guess that's what I just explained. I just think it's better this way because usually you jump from one point to another point and only correct your position a bit. I think it would be a bit frantic if he keeps changing left/right in the air whenever you press the opposite direction. That's just my view on it and is by no means a 'MUST BE LIKE THAT' thing..XD I'll probably keep it like that though. Thanks for being observant ^_^

ok I hope I'm not annoying now for replying to this againXD but I'm kinda curious if you could find a flash game where you see jumping a way you think looks good? so I can check that out and see if I can/want to improve mine somehow? I'm a bit of a perfectionist so yeah... I'm curious if I can improve.xD

This is neat. ^_^ It surprises me a little that he automatically keeps jumping after the first jump, although I'm not sure if it's just me being used to characters only being able to jump once, or if it would be better if there was a pause after the first. If there's no tricky cliffs, it should be fine as is, but if you have to be pretty precise for some jumps, it might bother me in a game until I could get used to it (although, I probably wouldn't hold the up button down for such a long time while playing a game, except perhaps for long jumps).
hmm... I don't remember if I'd said before, but I had that viking game. My brother might still have it - I don't remember who's game it was supposed to be. ...I didn't like that game very much, though. It was too annoying having to have every character in order to pass a level (how many times did you say, "Aw, come on! Two out of three are still alive, isn't that good enough?!"?), and needing more than one character to do stuff. I just didn't like games that weren't easy. ^_^"

thank you! you are the first one who mentions that but I noticed that pretty soon after uploading. I will not keep the jump like this. I don't want him to automatically jump again if you just keep pressing up.. that's not convenient..xD

yeah the game might not be everyone's taste but I love puzzly games that make you think and teamwork stuff. So it's one of my favourites. I am planning on making it sliighltly easier but still some difficult levels later on. And their abilities change over the course of the game.

Thank you for your comment!

I think I've always just liked things I could already do, and usually assume I'll never be good at stuff I'm not already good at. (although I've been trying to get better at some things in recent years, like drawing and writing, except I was good at those things for my age when I was younger) I like some puzzle type things, but I just never could get very far in that viking game.

this is really awesome chibi! <3

glitch - the first time i jumped, when he came back down from the jump, he fell bellow where the box ends. so i could only see him from the waist up.

other then that really great!!

hmm weird, never happened to me, can you reproduce the glitch? If yes, what exactly were you doing to make it happen? were you in full screen mode or in normal view..
Well the part which checks when he stops jumping will be handled totally different later (working on that right now actually) so I hope that glitch will be gone.

i was in normal view. it happened again after i refreshed. all i did was press the up arrow. he jumped, but fell past the bottom of the box when he came down from the jump.

i was just playing with it again a few minutes ago because i was telling my brother about your game idea and he wanted to see everything. it didnt do the glitch today. so i think you fixed it.

thanks for pointing it out. I didn't fix anything because I didn't edit this file.. I think it will be gone with having a real 'floor' though.

thank you! yeah the last time I had just stopped where I was and wanted to test out basic movement so I drew a really quick ugly walk animation xDD and now I have 8 frames for the walk and also 8 frames for the run. Thanks for your advice but I'm not really rushing here, I just do whatever I feel motivated because it's fun!
I hope that too : D but usually I'll just don't give up fighting with the code until it does what I want..xD Some things will be rather hard. After I have blocks they can stand on I want to try karkat's climbing skills. I think that will be hard but let's see, maybe I'm wrong?XD
I'm happy you like it!

Well, I'm glad you're glad I'm happy.

huh what do you mean? Does he disappear into the floor? because he really weirdly does that when I try it on full screen.. which I have totally NO explanation for and will hopefully be gone when I have the real function that tests if the floor tiles are hit (tiles which don't exist yet XDD ).
Thank you !

lexiecami Featured By Owner May 22, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Oh.. I just tried it and it works correctly.. But Before, it wasn't on full screen. When he jumped, I could only see his upper body unless he jumped. And the full screen doesn't work like you said. SO yeah idk maybe my laptop was just glitchy or something.
