A static screenshot just doesn't do it justice. In reality, the background is layered and uses parallax scrolling, creating a semi-3D effect. Since I don't think there will be a demo anytime soon, I'll probably create a video once I get Blocky Man running around.
I decided to not use the already created Stompy engine, instead making a new platformer engine from scratch. The features of it include:
- Layered backgrounds
- Parallax scrolling
- Horizontal and Vertical scrolling
- Variable sized levels
- Animated tiles
I'm planning to use this platformer engine to create the sequal to Stompy later on.
"The Adventures of Blocky Man" will be a Jump-and-Run platformer. I'm going to try and avoid the standard "Ice and Fire" level design. For instance, in the first level you'll be fighting evil Blocky vikings, while in a later level you'll be fighting aliens in outer space.
