Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Add the platform behavior to your sprite, it will have gravity.
Also, check the collision box of your grass. You might have to bring it down a little so the character doesn’t stand on the tips.
Or, better yet, use an invisible solid box for your collision object, then position the grass over the top of it.
