      I'm using construct 2 physics I have a working bike with everything setup and I'm able to do frontflip and backflip by adding angular velocity to the bike
      I want to increase score/ add points and display the "backflip / frontflip" text when the bike does it.
      so please help me I want to know the logic and how it's done.
      p.s. example about construct 2 is not necessary, just explain me how other games do it or anything else you have to share
      Thanks,
      Drago

      You have 12 hours to search for supplies, transportation or you can continue your journey.
      But as soon as night falls, you must find shelter, turn it into a fortress to stand against the hordes of monsters.
      Equip soldiers, use bonuses and do not forget to follow the energy level of your fighters. 
      In battle be useful to your transport, it would be nice to find a tank.
      Every day the number of monsters to get more, they mutate into stronger and more dangerous forms.

Platformer game where player is a developer

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!
Like it often happens, I am software developer (not gamedev), and once I got an idea ;)
And I try to implement it.
Idea was to create game, where main character is a developer. And after some occasion, he turns in mysterious world, where developers horrors/memes becomes true.
For example, primary weapon is a crutch, player collects them. Player can use it for melee attack, or throw them for distant attack.
Also player collects coffee to increase health.
Basic enemies are bugs (literally), spaghetti monster, deadline, etc.
Actually there are lot of ideas which can be implemented (such as skills, debuffs, selecting speciality for dev-player, which influences set of skills and so on), question only in finding free time for it)
I plan multiple locations, starts with office, then city, then some nature place.
I decided to use platformer genre, pixel art style (I considered it as easiest to implement. Problem that I don't have any experience in gamedev or creating art, drawing, etc)
Here is brief video for 0-level.

I reimplemented basic idea several times...
I will very appreciate any opinion about this idea. Does it have any chance? Especially with so horrible design.

Or may be you have some crazy ideas of game items?
Thanks.

What kind of developer? The plot doesn't sound very interesting.

Does it matter? (Actually I wanted to differentiate it in future, it gonna to influence on player skills set, but not for the moment - currently abstract)

A developer can be anyone who develops. What do you mean by developer? A game developer? Maybe I'm missing out on what you are trying to say.

Okay, sorry, probably I expressed unclear.

I meant typical software developer (programmer, coder, etc) - person who spend time writing a code.
