Description

Recently, I've been seeing some of 's stuff.
He's made a number of nice little platform game demos, using an ActionScript tutorial by
The concept looked promising and got me inspired.

Years ago, before I got seriously into art and animation, I had some crazy dream of being a gamer. But I soon found that this is a hard market to get into - and anyway, I hadn't the skill. When I played Rayman 3 through for the first time and saw the depth of detail in the environments, far outshining my efforts, I realised that this was an area way out of my field.
But I still had an old idea that I wanted to try... and I've been refining it to make it a bit more original - i.e. it features my own personal characters instead of Redwall or Narnia spin-offs.

This is a first prototype and basically follows the ActionScript that I got from Person333's tutorial: Frederick (my ferret character), a number of ledges and a goal to reach.
I've been experimenting already, and have altered the code somewhat from what it originally was to make it work my way:
There are seperate animations for jumping and falling.
Movement has been altered to stop and start gradually, instead of all at once.
The jump action has also been adjusted to allow 'running jumps'. When going at speed, Frederick will turn a somersault to carry himself to a further distance. This will be handy here.
