Enjoy.

I should mention that the game autosaves every time you go into a new room or area.

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-07-21
~Volcanic-Penguin's gallery contains a lot of very stlyish creations and when you look at it you can tell that a fair bit of planning and inspiration has gone into his platformer Loa And The Island Quest. A pleasure to play with a great soundtrack! ( Suggested by championchap and Featured by Age2003 )

Oh yeah, that boss is a fucking bitch lol, sorry bout that. You have to like stay out of the water when they do their electricity thing, but then you have to avoid the big blorb when it turns black and spiky. You kill the boss by using the sparkly energy field thing (X or Z I forget) on his eyes.

Okay, is there, like, a cheat or something so I can just skip the spiders and fly upwards on my own?
Or do I have to beat that evil mechanical spider thing of the ceiling in the cave?

How the heck do you beat that first boss? By the time I get there, Ive got no lives left and I'm just sitting there with my shield trying to keep from dying.

Ah right, yeah that's a bit cryptic. You have to dive down to the bottom and do the sparky thing on the big blob's eyes.

Oh and remember to press Space and save your game so you don't have to do lots of stuff over again. :9

Ah, hehe, I see. He's actually getting hurt as you do that, he's not healing himself. You have to hurt each eye maybe.. five times or something. I might have made it a little too tough. =P

Wow this is incredibly addictive! I love the style you've made it in, it's kind of simplistic but detailed at the same time. I liked it in the first level when you were walking along and plants came across your screen in the foreground and things like that, or in the volcano level where there is ash rising in front of you.

It says critique encouraged so I'm just going to give you one suggestion... I'm REALLY sorry if it's been suggested before, but there's quite a lot of comments so I might have missed it ^^; I think it might be better if you allow the character to jump while running fast... what I mean is, at the moment when you hold Z you can't jump. You have to stop to jump. I dunno if there's a way you can fix that, but it might make the game play flow better :3

Awesome stuff though! Love the music, the graphics and the sense of humour from the people you talk to ;D :+favlove:

Thanks, I'm glad you appreciate it! :9 It's always nice to get some comments on this, and not just the rainbow line thing.

As for your suggestion, I think that your problem is specific to your computer. :P I can run and jump here, with the keyboard. Perhaps it would work better for you if you plugged in a controller and used joytokey, I dunno. :9

I loved playing through this. The style and artwork were great, everything ran smoothly, and I imagine it was really tricky to script this. There needs to be more games like this on dA. :+fav:

It's probably extremely complicated, but how did you do such great collision detection? Like, the slopes/hills?
Reply
:iconvolcanic-penguin:
Volcanic-Penguin Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Haha, yeah it is. Well I dunno, maybe not extremely, but it was quite tricky. Basically it's a bunch of collisiontesting with the whole map and a coordinate relative to the character, and then a variable that tells if she's on the ground or in the air. I used alot of collisiontesting with both of her feet to see if she's on a slope and stuff. Frankly I don't remember exactly how I did it cause there's alot of code to it but here's a script for seeing if she's on a slope to the right. :P The center x y coordinate of the charactersprite is in the middle of her feet.

if _root.level.hitTest(_root.sprite._x-10, _root.sprite._y, true) == true
and _root.level.hitTest(_root.sprite._x+10, _root.sprite._y, true) == false
and _root.level.hitTest(_root.sprite._x+10, _root.sprite._y+10, true) == true {
//the left foot is touching the ground, the right foot isn't, but there's ground beneath the right foot, so it's a slope!
//here we can then put script to make the character sink down into the ground a bit when running to the right so that she won't walk off into the air
}

The "true" in the end of the parantheses is just so that the collisiontesting is done with consideration to the exact shape of the level, false makes it so it thinks of the level as a box and then it doesn't work.

Hope that made any sense. You should experiment, you might come up with better ways of doing it.

Anyway in my current platformer project I decided to skip slopes and have a more tilebased leveldesign. I mostly wanted to have slopes just to show that I could, they don't make the game that much better than if you had to jump up staircases. :P Also it looks a bit weird when the characters feet don't match the surface of the slope, but that could of course be done with a little extra work.
