I'd say this is easily the prettiest game made with Stencyl, looks fantastic! And I know the animation is super smooth and fantastic too.

Thanks for the high praise.

This is Ghost Dash.



You get this move midway in the game. It's useful as a travel mechanic (you can reach further areas) as well as an avoidance maneuver, as you briefly phase from physical matter and pass through most ordinary enemies and bullets. There is another function for it that I won't reveal here. :)

Bet that was difficult to code so you don't end up in a wall?

The trick is to have two collision shapes. One is the dash shape, sensor, the other is a tiles only shape which connects with nothing but tiles. I use this one frequently for enemies who I want to have no physical presence in the world (otherwise they'll get pushed around and stuff when you run into them, which I don't like).

Aah yeah, good thinking. Excited to see how this develops.

It just works like a quick short range dash, somewhat similarly to mega man x or some castlevania games.

This is a certain feral droid's lair, who has become sort of a pack rat in his years of isolation. He'll pester you a few times in the game. I used a nice lighting effect here by having a dark graphic covering the screen with a hole in it over the player, after applying some transparency and a blending mode, the result is very dynamic. It looks cool in motion.

Cant wait to see it in motion. :) Nicest looking game made with Stencyl!
You should consider making some tutorials for your graphical effects, I think that people would really appreciate it!
