How to make a simple platformer

Isn’t creating a platformer at least one of a game coder’s ambitions? I know it was one of mine.

Yay I’m excited to see it! I love your platformers


Failure is a pathway to success


Can you teach me how to make an object collide?

If you want real advice and help, then ask Spy_Guy_96. He has more knowledge on platformers than I do.

When is tapped. Set vertical velocity to (however High your jump is)

The only problem is that when collide it will go up.


If the object collides with the platform, set y scroll to 0 (bottom or top), or set x scroll to 0 (sides).

@creationsofavillager, In your case, “vertical velocity”

I don’t understand… @Crosbyman64

Under Tetris line 4 (give it a self collision of 1):

When (self) collision = 1
—Check once if ((abs(cloud x pos - self x pos)) < (((cloud width + self width) ÷ 2) - 1)) and ((abs(Y - self y pos)) < ((cloud height + self height) ÷ 2))
—— Check once if ((cloud y pos) > (self y pos))
——— set (Y) to (self y + ((cloud height + self height) ÷ 2))
——— set (Y speed) to 0
——— set (Air) to 1
—— Else
——— set (Y) to (self y - ((cloud height + self height) ÷ 2))
——— set (Y speed) to 0

For X, replace (cloud x pos) with (X), (Y) with (cloud y pos) (first check once if), and a bunch of y pos and heights with x pos and widths, and don’t include air for x)

Under jump button: when self is tapped, if air = 1, set (Y speed) to 21

Under cloud:
when game is playing, increase (Y speed) by -1
when game is playing, set position to x (x) y (y)
When game is playing, increase (x) by (x speed), increase (y) by (y speed)

Make sure the controls’ code are above the cloud’s code, which should be above the platform’ code (click the list view icon in the top right corner of the main code block (light blue) to reveal multiple objects’ code blocks).

I wish I could make this easier to understand, but I this is as close as I can get to being understandable…

You will need to copy it to all platforms, or you can clone them, and it will still do the same thing. Use clone index to deal with the positioning of each platform.

By that, I mean self y pos
