[I've just accidentally clicked 'Clear Page' after writing the whole thing, so I have to rush this now. Sorry :)]

A fully animated (animation is optional) character will be able to walk left and right, turn accordingly, jump to and from platforms, and take different animated poses according to whether it is Idle, Walking or Jumping/Falling.

The following are included in the game:

  • Movie Clips:
    • Hero (player character)
    • Platforms (floor, suspended platforms to jump on etc) [instance name:PLATFORMS]
    • Walls (to restrict hero from going off sides of screen etc) [instances names: LEFTBOUND and RIGHTBOUND]
  • Variables:
    • Gravity (how fast hero falls)
    • WalkSpeed (how fast hero walks)
    • MaxJump (maximum jumping height)
  • Keys used:
    • Left : Walk left
    • Right: Turn right
    • Space: Jump (hold button til desired jump height is achieved)

[Movie Clips will now be referred to as 'MC'; all animation and drawing further than a simple rectangle etc is optional]

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
