PostSubject: Help me design levels?   Thu Mar 11, 2010 10:24 am

This board is for "all game-related things", so I figured why not ask.

I'm making a game of my own. I can do most things - sprites, programming, backgrounds - myself but... There's an area I'm severely lacking in.

I can't design a layout. You know, the "floor here, hole in the floor leading to certain doom here, wall here" part of the game... I just can't figure it out, and I'm running low on time.

So can you please help me out? You just have to doodle the stage, in MS Paint or something, show it to me and I'll do the rest. The only requirements are that it's a 900 x 1200 area (900 pixels down, 1200 pixels across) and that it has a door on it that leads to the next stage.

... Also, if you do it you'll get a free sketch for every stage. If that helps.

What can or cannot be in a level? Does it have elements such as sliding, momentum or other things we could be aware of? I too am no good at such things but I could give it a shot. Razz

Also I wouldn't expect anything in return because you most likely would not like the end product. xD

Well, the thing is, it doesn't have to be GOOD. Or even appliable. I'll just sort of tweak it if it doesn't work. And it's not like being unable to draw means you can't design a map.

For now he can only run normally, although I've been planning to add a "dash" function and maybe a crouch/crawl function. The only limitation stage-wise I can think of is to try and avoid slopes or stairs, I kinda haven't figured out how to make those yet. Ladders, bouncy-pads, and other creative solutions can work.
