Platform Jumper

After reading the Ludum Deals page I knew that I had to make a game in Atanua.

So I did. This is Platform Jumper – a very simple game where you need to avoid falling off floating platforms. Made only using digital logic – No programming.

It was definitely hard work, but it was very satisfying when I started to see it working.

My main problems in making this came from rushing into making the circuits rather than actually designing them properly. As it turns out digital logic is very hard to debug and more tedious to change than programming.

Due to making before designing I had issues with the game clock rate. It works at a clock rate that is a bit too low than I would have liked, but if I increased it collisions stopped working.

Making this game was very rewarding and I’m glad that I chose to make it out of digital logic. However next time I think I’ll stick to conventional programming.
