You Can Talk About Hopscotch Here; Topic 30 [OFFICIAL]

And the fact that potions are disabled in the challenge levels make it even harder.

I kinda found out about that when I somehow dodged Bear who was right below Raccoon (with a broom).

Your game literally puts mine to shame, and I haven’t even started mine yet.

Also, your Level Editor somehow let me in without using 10 seeds, lol. The way you add / remove a section of the level is impressive on its own.

I also pretty much figured out the AI of each enemy

  • Frog: continuously moves in one direction and turns around when hitting a wall (takes 5 hits to defeat)
  • Bear: follows the player endlessly. Can easily be tricked into falling into a hole.
  • Gorilla: moves much like Frog, but slower and takes more hits to defeat
    Venus: fires fireballs based on the player’s location relative to the enemy (takes 2 hits)
  • Mosquito: flies towards and in-line with the player. Only takes 1 bit to defeat.
  • Dino: fires fireballs and occasionally moves towards the player (takes 3 hits)
  • Bird: repeatedly bounces around. Takes 2 hits to defeat.
  • Crocodile: attacks upon getting too close
  • Iguana spawn: periodically spawns iguanas in the direction of the spawn’s door. Follows the same movement as Frog
  • Parrot: flies above the player and drops fire

That’s 10 enemies, WOW!!

I also saw that some of the design was inspired (somewhat) by Super Mario Bros. 3 (the random coin goal).

You and awesome_E have special access to the level editor:)

I didn’t see that coming…

Imagine having to beat the entire game in a row without taking damage, nor using potions. Now that would be a real challenge (and you would have to delete the save if you got defeated / fell out of the world).

I still need to figure out what enemies I’m going to make. A lot of them will probably be inspired by the enemies in Appel from Scratch…

If you’re talking about your star link platformer, I think the menu design is pretty good.

I’m talking about the game I’m working on: When Worlds Collide.

I might even do a do-over in order to use as little rules as possible (code efficiency). I did way too much in player 2.0 to the point where everything would break after downgrading the player.

The X button is the attack button. You must be facing the enemy to damage them.

@Spy_Guy_96 I finally made it to the secret level.

I always seem to fail at the exact same spot (the crate on the x platform).

34 Levels (33 + 1 secret)… that’s got to be a new record for you. I don’t remember how many levels you did last time (not counting the game where you only did 1 level and quit).

One thing I noticed is that the x platform automatically reset after it leaves the screen, which is what I should’ve done for my Weak Platforms.

Not a platformer, but this game had 30 levels, only a 3 (technically 4) level difference!

Before Raccoon with a broom, my platformer with the most levels was Frankenrilla at 16 levels

I was going to attempt to make a system so blue platforms would work even when unloaded, but I realised that that would be useless as when you activate one and run off screen, by the time you come back the blue platform would be back anyway, doesn’t even matter if it went of screen or not.

The system I had originally in mind was, when you step on a blue platform, the game would spawn a object that removes the tiles collision when the platform disappears. And then after a few seconds when the platform reappears, the special object would add collision again and delete itself from the game.

Not to different from how the game now works, just would mean that blue platforms would work even when unloaded.

When I did mine, I realized the hard way that my system doesn’t work when the tile is unloaded (as in the system is paused until the tile is loaded again).

@Spy_Guy_96 I took a screenshot when I got this far…

I got to the point where it’s impossible to jump without the box. I’m guessing I need to push the box I’m standing on over to that spot? Not sure how I’ll be able to make the jumps from here if I do though…

For those who are wondering why I only have 1 heart, this is how much health you start with.

You need to take the box with you to make a jump later in the level
