Enemies! June 3, 2010Posted by Jesse in : Game Development , add a comment
I’ve gotten two enemies into the game. I also added boomerangs that the player can throw to attack.
Bullyfrog is a frogman who simply runs across the screen. If he reaches the edge of a ledge, he’ll leap to the next ledge. (If he can reach.) He’s really quick, and not very easy to dodge. I think we’ll do a palette swapped version of this character who is a bit tougher and will stop to throw projectiles at the player.
Spikey is a big spike covered block who waits for the player to get near and then smashes down trying to squash them. I added a neat screen shake effect when he hits. He’s completely immune to boomerangs, they just bounce off of him.
