Blocky Man is now in the showcase.

I want to announce here that I'm going to start from scratch coding a new platformer. There are so many things I want to work with in this genre, but I can't do it with the current code for Blocky Man. So, I'm starting over from scratch.

Also, I got SDL working on VC++[smile]. It was really easy, not that I really expected it to be hard.

Anyways, download Blocky Man and have fun.

EDIT: Okay, I fixed the DLL problem. If you already downloaded it, try it again and it should work.

This application has failed to start because smpeg.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

Me three, smpeg, for mp3 files if I remember correctly, please include it =).

EDIT: A simple search yielded the DLL.

Runs fine for me -- guess I must have stuffed the DLL in my system32 a long time ago or somesuch. :P

Amusing game, Stompy (and in the good way!). Looking forward to what sidescrolling adventures you have us lined up for next. ;)

Very nice! I like the fifth level with all the opportunities to bounce off of the Anti Blockies and get three or four in one shot. Very entertaining.

Music and sound effects are hilarious - really adds to the game. My only complaint is the long delay between jumping and hearing the "boing" jump sound - but I can live with that [smile]


Now I'm going to have to get busy and finish my Castle Blockentstein mod...

You should add multiple paths through some of the levels (i.e. underground sewers rather than jumping above).

It plays great on my machine at work. At home, everything is in slow motion. Other SDL games run just fine, so I'm not sure what's going on.

SDL is slower in emulation mode, if that's what's happening. What did you use for flags to setup your pixel format? (SDL_ANYFORMAT?)

Yeah, SDL_ANYFORMAT and SDL_DOUBLEBUF

Although, if you're getting slowdown, it's probably due to SDL_mixer, not anything else. That is where most of the slowdown has occured for my SDL games.
