I played a cool indie game earlier today called Fallover

So I had a go at doing something similar in Construct
By removing all friction and elasticity, it pretty much gives you freedom with the physics object, so acceleration and deceleration are done with changes to velocity rather than forces (so I could make it more arcade like a normal platform game) I added friction to the spinning block because otherwise you slide right off it and it just seems weird.
I wanna work on this more...I think it would be quite cool to play with a 360 controller when using the left stick makes you go left and right, but the right stick controls how you rotate...so I can imagine you jumping over an obstacle, hitting your legs, and then spinning yourself so you land back on your feet again otherwise you face plant heh
Anyway heres a quick attempt I had at it...sorry it's not 1 event
