Snowman Platformer Game Idea


  • Posts: 22
Hello everyone!

I have an idea for a new game that I just started working on a couple of days ago, I would like you guys to tell me what you think about it! (also it will not be on the arcade for a bit because this is just a hobby right now :D)

You are a snowman, and as you see spring come and all the other snowman melt into nothing more but a pile of water you don't want that to be your watery grave so, you decide to run away from spring!

How the game works: you start each level running from spring in this case a region of the left-hand side of the screen will scroll along behind you transforming the level from a winter wonder land to a lush green wet spring. If you get caught in the region meaning your to slow you will turn into a puddle and restart the level.
there will also be more ways you could die (enemies.)

That is pretty much the concept of the game!

Please tell me what you think about it!

I also have 1 problem right now that I was wondering if you guys could help me with.
When say, the snowman is walking against  a wall and he tries to jump he gets stuck on the wall!
I would appreciate it if someone could help me out.
(After all this is only my second game) here's the first

Thank you for your time,

Thanks a lot for that turns out the friction was set to 0.2 :D
That saved me a lot of time and a long amount of coding!
