Somebody recently asked me if they should use both the Platform and 8-Directional behavior to move up and down ladders.
My answer was, "You could, but...".
There are quit a few tutorials covering this topic, using both the Platform and 8-Direction behavior.
But, I like to go with just the Platform behavior, with only 2 instance variables for the player and the use of gravity. In the *.capx file (link below) you can see how this is achieved in a Donkey Kong platformer. This approach only uses 7 events. I have commented each event for those of you who are new to Construct 2.
The graphics and sprites used in this demonstration are just for educational purposes only. Do not use these in any other way without consent from the owner/publisher/company.
I hope this demonstration will help those creating games with ladders :)
