Platformer Idea (What do you think about it)

  • Hey,

    Im new on construct 2. I made already games on GameMaker, but for my new idea, i want to try this engine. My idea is simple:

    A classic platformer like super mario in moder Design. But the difference is, that you have 2 blocks you can place everywhere. But if you place the 3. Block, the first one will be eliminated. The blocks also desapear after a time. You can just win if you use the blocks. What do you think about the idea? Are there similar games already? Do you think it could come threw steam greenlight?

    Sorry for my bad english. Im from germany. I hope you answer me fast because i must tell my friends i make the game with about it because they are the day after tomorrow for a weak away

    Thanks

  • Yes its is possible have you looked at the infinite runner game that comes with construct 2 that will help you.

  • Thanks for your feedback. Are there any games like this on steam? I didnt find one. Maybe some of you have some new ideas for the game. If i decide to make the game, i will start an extra post. But to time i need some help for ideas and something like that.

    .

    It has the ability to not only create 2 blocks but destroy existing blocks as well. Also, gameplay wise you could consider The legend of Zelda's Cane of Somaria that allows you to create and destroy 1 block for any use.

    Ah ok. Thanks for your answer. But i think you dont understand what i mean. It should be a platformer like super mario without rooms (maybe for bosses). It should be a modern comic design. Do you think that is enough difference to other games or have you any ideas how i can make more difference?

  • This game has potential. Will there be a storyline to it or will it just be a type of arcade game?

  • Im not sure. But i had the idea that the main person is a paper box and a story about it. I think a little story would be great. Have you any ideas for a story?

  • I have a new question. How long do you mean would it take to finish a prototype and start a pre-alpha? I hope i get some more answers. But thanks verry much everyone who take the time to answer me.

    For me it takes forever since I'm a lazy bastard. However if I add the total time spent making the game it'll probably be about 2-4 hours. Since you are creating a platform game with many levels, ai and functions, I'm going to guess it'll probably take you about 5 forevers to complete your game.

  • Thank you verry much for your answer. I think five forevers arent so long. So i can manage that. Now serious. Has nobody a story idea? Thank a lot.

  • I used to get a graphic first and based on that I made myself a story but still in forever time to build it

  • You can use whatever story you want. You should play more games, watch more movies, read Dr. Seuss books, basically do whatever you can to get fragments of story elements you want to use so you can make your own. You can't seriously believe some random people are just going to write you a story. If they did then maybe they'd use it for their own games.

    I'm going to suggest something stupid like you character isn't carrying 2 boxes with him but 2 "balls".

    If your character is carrying 2 "balls" he can't jump. If your character is carrying no balls, he gets scared by random enemies so you lose control and let the ai take over for a short period of time.

    He's dragging his "balls" all the way to the finish line...

  • Thank you verry much. I dont want to hear a complete story. That would be stupid. I meaned maybe somebody has a idea like the balls. Did i understand right? If you have the balls in hand you cant jump but if you do them away you cant control your person so good. MPlant maybe it would be an idea, to put in the jmp and Run places where if the balls are in something hapens( z.b. a door gets open). Its verry nice that you take you the time to answer me.
