New tile based platform engine – part 11 – slopes part a

Read all posts about "" game

You asked for it, I made it… ladies and gentlemen… SLOPES! (applause).

I decided to split slopes in two parts, because they are a bit more difficult than other tile types.

In this part, you can walk on slopes but you can’t jump on/from them. Oh, well, you can actually jump or land on them, but without the second part of the code, there could be some glitches.

Obviously if you want to suggest your jumping routine, you’re welcome.

Slopes need a lot of rules in order to work, that can be summarized in one big rule: don’t make senseless slopes.

For senseless slopes I mean everything… senseless… refer to the picture:

Green shapes show some possible slopes while red ones show impossible ones.

Then the is_on_slope function solves slope walking.

Once I’ll publish jumping routine, I’ll write a detailed slope tutorial.

Meanwhile take the source code:
