New tile based platform engine – part 9 – coins n’ spikes

Read all posts about "" game

You asked for coins and spikes, and here they are…

As usual I had to define some rules… in this case spikes are deadly only when the player has both feet on it… later I will make a lava (or electric) tile that will kill the player even if he only has one foot on it.

At the moment the player just restarts when he dies, later I will manage real deaths.

Coins are… well… coins… just collect them.

Fix for the fix for infamous Ladder Bug in the Platform Tutorials

In New tile based platform engine – more theory I said superdean fixed the ladder bug… that’s not completely true because with his code the player cannot climb down a ladder when he’s walking over it.

So the correct if statement to perform when the player presses DOWN is neither mine

if (over == "ladder") {

nor superdean’s one

if (top_right == 6 or bottom_right == 6 or top_left == 6 or bottom_left == 6){

but

if ((over == "ladder") or (top_right == 6 or bottom_right == 6 or top_left == 6 or bottom_left == 6)) {

Now grab the source code:

and play the game.

Can you grab the rightmost coin? (the other is too easy because patrols can’t kill the player)
