My fourth game prototype!
Now, to clear each stage, Frederick has to get past various hazards including spikes and killer rabbits!

The first thing that is introduced are interactive ledges! Take note, the moving ledges are set up to carry the player with them. (The code for this was actually quite simple)
Be aware that certain ledges will also just fall out when stepped on! But don't worry... they'll be back.

Since Frederick now has to worry about a life gauge, as well as not falling off the ledges, I have now added power-ups that restore his health. You'll see them as you go along...

The last level in this game is going to require you to find a projectile weapon.

Frederick is Copyright me.

=D I beat it! maybe try a game with a selection of characters, with different weapons, abilities and fighting styles. Also enemys who take more than 1 hit to knock down. (so Danbuster's sword does more damage than frederick punching something, but he's less agile. Also maybe a character who has a ranged weapon, but needs to find ammo for it.)

One of these days, I'll have to make a full game of what I learned in these prototypes... ^^;
There would be tougher enemies, of course!

The growl? Sound effect used by a hungry rat-like monster in this game I have...

The engine seems pretty solid, and though the game seems somewhat insanely posh, it's lacking something.

For me, that something is speed. I wouldn't bother with any momentum for a platform game, and I'd simply make him faster and jump higher from a standing start. Otherwise it feels a bit unbalanced; this athletically handicapped otter (right?) managing a backflip for a kick, yet failing to jump a small distance when not fully prepared.
Please, speed it up, it'll solidly stick it in the good game category :D

Hmmm. Thanks for the helpful advice.
This is a prototype, of course, but I could perhaps consider improving his speed and jumping height sometime. It would probably tie in with scrolling screen, which is one thing I mean to discover next. I'm still at the test stage.
Of course, the long-jump challenges will remain.

BTW, you are pretty near about the species. Frederick's true species ferret! Though, as one of my main created characters, he has an elaborate backstory.
He was an orphan and was fostered by a family of otters... this accounts for his great strength.
And this family also had a lodger/friend who was a squirrel... he was the one who helped him develop his agility.

Look up the V-cam, it'll make your scrolling insanely easier, and comes packed with less lag :)

And with that agility, I'm sure he can run around a lil' bit faster ;)

Downloaded a copy from FlashKit. I'll have to master it sometime.

I'm now going to use it for an animation/cartoon I've been working on. Too late to change what I've already done, but for the main bit it will be v-cam-ised!
Thanks again!

You ought to fix the platform glitch...I shouldn't have to keep pressing forward because it moves out from under me, right? Good game, though.

:icondcleadboot:
DCLeadboot Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The only problems I had with moving platforms is that you slide backwards slightly when you move forward with it... but I'm not sure why that is.
Other than that, they're OK for me. I mean, they do carry you with them, don't they?
