So in the spirit of actually getting some gameplay into the game, I made a player class, and dropped it into the game. It’s a horrid colour, but it moves when you press the arrow keys, and jumps on command. It also doesn’t fall through the ground.
Note the blue box, which bounces down the hill, reacting and colliding realistically. I’m not sure what gameplay purpose it can serve, but now I’ve got the ability to use it, I probably should.
I need some enemies in the game too, so I recolored the player to green, made enemies red, and gave them a body (the blue stick figure). I also added a simple uppercut type attack where you knock the enemy out and send them flying.
Here’s a sequence of shots showing the attack, because it’s too much effort to record and upload video.
Now, well and truly time to get some sleep. Good night and happy coding!
