Programming Contest 2
« on: 12 Sep 2003, 02:22 »
Alright, the last one bombed, so I have a new one.

This time, create a game/program that allows platform jumping.  I don't care how you do it, just do it.  This is obvious, but make it in AGS.  Don't worry about graphics, or sounds.  Of coarse, you CAN make your graphics pretty and the sounds soothing, but it's not required.  The only limitation this time is that there must at least two platforms to jump from/on.

You have until forever to make it, if you actually DO decide to enter this contest.

When you say platform jumping, do you mean fast-smooth jumping as in a platform style game.  Or do you mean making the character jump from one platform to another? I'm a little confused but interested in the challenge. :)

Yes, pardon me.  I was a little...energenic when I wrote that.  What I mean is, make a game, one room or more, where the player can jump from one platform to another.  The minimun number of platforms is two.  The contest will be over in two weeks.  Whoever can write the fastest and most efficient code will win.  The winner can then start the next competition.

PS. The quality of the graphics or any sounds you may have added will not be counted, but feel free to make it look cool and be pleasing to the ear.

Quintaros, upload it and post it in this thread, or send it to me at roberteric@rain-day.com, then I will evaluate it and upload it to my site for you.

Do you just want me to send you the compiled game or do you want to see the code itself?

The code, of coarse.  I'll compile it myself.

Er... Sorry...
Ever heard of Platformerius?
In the games/non-adventure section, there's a game called
"Platformerius: The Ninja Incident (by 2ma2)"
which does exactly what you want and the download comes with the full open code.
The engine is pretty fast and works astoundingly well.

Just wanted to inform you, in case you get several identical solutions  ;)

Well I'll be damned.  You know what, let's stop this competition.  It's getting boring.

I do believe its a good idea, but perhaps it will live on in Mods' new OverProductiveDay.
