I love the collapse system. Was that the first thing you did?

First thing was player movement, tile sprites, and level management and generation, then the support/collapse system. Took a while to get down (a few days of puzzling it out) but I'm happy with it. Now I've got to find a good way of getting the player to clamber up edges without getting funny physics issues like I am now.

lol, fail.

regardless, I'll get it working by tonight. It works in all situations other than those involving downwards movement so it's likely a velocity issue.

The control system is rather odd, considering you need two hands for the keyboard, and one more hand for the mouse? Wouldn't the movement work better on WASD?

There won't be mouse control in the final. It's for testing.

Update on the page. You can now clamber up edges, which makes getting around a lot easier. Tweaked the gravity, though it could probably go up some more. I'll probably chuck variable jump heights onto this and call player movement just about done for now.

Love the support mechanic, fun to look at when the bottom layer is deleted.

How does the clambering work? I can't seem to do it.

Try jumping across a five tile chasm.
Or walking up to a single tile.

Odd. That didn't seem to be working before.

Allstone: It's possible you got in quick enough for the host not to have updated before you played it. I'll get proper hosting at some point :P

Anyone found any bugs yet? I have, and I'll work on fixing it, but for now I've got to keep writing my seminar, it's only at ~7 minutes and I've got to get it to 12. Not used to doing this sort of thing <_<

Well, the right upper 2 dirt squares usually collapse at the beginning of the game.

That's just because there isn't any dirt to the right of it to support it. Same with the left corner sometimes.
