Game Prototype 2

By
Following on from my previous prototype ([link]), I've been trying out a few new tricks with this Flash-based platformers lark.

This second prototype and follows the same ActionScript that I started with -- I've just expanded on it.
Frederick still has to reach the goal in each stage, but the obstacles become more complicated.

So what's new here? Well...
In addition to ground pieces to stand on, there are now left and right wall pieces to impede your progress.
In Stage 2, I introduce ceiling pieces. Collision with these will interrupt your jumps. This part also introduces tight spaces. Being a ferret, Frederick can just fit through them, if he crawls.
In Stage 3, I introduce climbers. Frederick can now jump onto and climb vines and things. This is something new to me, and I think there are still bugs to iron out.

Sometimes he does his jump flip thing and he flips but never goes forward so he falls

Probably the collision detectors slowing him down? I realise the coding in this was kind of clunky... ^^;

Great, but the ropes were uber-glitched or something...he wouldn't jump off! :P

There are bugs to iron out. He either catches it too low down and slips off, or he grabs it at the wrong moment.
He really shouldn't grab them again until he starts to descend from a jump. Try moving down from the ceiling pieces, because they interrupt his jumps.

:lol: just old. Usually if a game isn't pre-school easy I give up pretty quick. Then again if it's Star Wars and there's a score to keep...

wow, that definatly was more fun. It was a surprise to see him crawl and climb rope. I think he deserves a cup of tea after going through that assault course.
Awesome game mate.
