There’s no doubt the king of all platform games is Mario, but recently I played on my iPhone a great Mario-like game called Lep’s World.
So I wanted to create something similar with Scirra’s Construct 2 and in a few minutes I made a platform prototype featuring scrolling, double jump and destructible tiles.
There are four objects in the game:
Hero: the hero of the game, call it Mario or Lep, it does not mind. It has a Platform behavior
HeadSensor: useful to detect collisions between hero’s head and destructible tiles
SolidWall: the solid, unbreakable wall with “Solid” behavior
DestructibleWall: as the name suggest, the tile that can be destroyed by jumping under it.
Then, I only needed four blocks of actions:
And this is the result:
Move our hero with LEFT and RIGHT arrow keys, UP to jump, UP again to double jump and try to destroy purple tiles.
