In Topic: How to implement a cleaner code for jump up in air and fall down to ground me...

If you're trying to mimic a more realistic jump(i.e. not jumping higher while holding the jump button), you should add velocity instead of acceleration in the vertical direction the first time the jump button is pressed and the player is on the ground. In real life you only accelerate upwards while your feet are on the ground, once your feet leave the ground you have an upwards velocity and start accelerating downwards due to gravity.

Your currentHealth and maxHealth variables are integers, meaning that the result of currentHealth / maxHealth will also be an integer, which means the result of that operation will either be either 0 or 1. Integers are always rounded down, so you'll end up with 0 if currentHealth < maxHealth. You can go two ways here, cast the numbers to floating point numbers and cast back to an integer in the end, or simply multiply by 177 before you divide.

I sort of like yours better, maybe because of the shape. I like the looks of your blood, not sure if you can make that look better in a stylized fashion. Btw, is this a circle or a sphere? You mentioned flat terrain, but I keep seeing this as a sphere.
