'Building a platform game' tutorial - updates

  • I've now added the promised Part 2 of my Building a platform game - a beginner's guide tutorial.

    It covers scoring and, in particular, shows how the score can take account of the particular location where each event happens, and award different numbers of points for each location (e.g. depending on the difficulty of getting there).

    I'm always happy to have feedback - especially if you have better ways of doing things!

    Part 3 is in the works at the moment, but is unlikely to be added till after the Rotary Competition ;) But when it is is, I'll use this topic to let you know.

  • Nice, this will be very helpful for beginners.

    I'm waiting for part 3. <img src="smileys/smiley20.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

  • How do you get hold of the Sprite pack for the Platform game tutorial?

    I have purchased Construct 2 but the sprites aren't in any of the samples shipped as far as I can see.

  • dbunker

    You'll find it here, under 'Free Bundle Download'.

    Enjoy!

  • Thanks - these will be useful.

    Any idea how to get hold of the resources needed for the Jungle platform tutorial too?

    This tutorial uses the Jungle Platformer sprites from the bundle you get when you purchase Construct 2. (The link should have been emailed to you.)

  • dbunker

    You should also find the Jungle Platformer sprites in the Free Bundle Download.

  • Hi,

    I downloaded the free trial to check out this program, but I did not get any of the jungle platformer sprites with the download.

    Can you help me out?

    Read the previous posts in this thread!!

  • I hope you continue it as I learnt a lot from it, thanks. <img src="smileys/smiley32.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

  • Sorry, I guess I'm just stupid, or not very tech savvy.

    All I got in the free bundle was the space sprites. I couldn't find any jungle platform pack.

  • Velojet I've downloaded that but there aren't any jungle sprites in it, just the space ones.

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

  • The jungle assets are available for those who bought a C2 license.

    The link to it used to be sent in an email (the same that has your txt license file).

    If you don't have access to those assets, nevermind, just go on google and pick some other assets. You'll still be able to go on with the tutorial.

  • I wasn't sent the link to it but I do have a standard license.

    I actually never received the email containing the .txt file, I just downloaded it it from the site.

    No apology needed - except from me! I didn't realise that the Jungle sprites pack comes with the licence.

  • Still having an issue to building the scoring system. Even though the player lands on a platform it doesn't add points to the total score. Is there a bug in the tutorial Building a platform game - a beginner's guide?
