Munky Needs PlayTested!
Here's something incredibly rare, for AGameAWeek... An early TEST edition!!
I'm pretty settled on the engine, and I'm comfortable that 99.9% of collisions work like they oughta. There's the occasional glitch, but hopefully I can tweak those back to normality by the time I'm done.
Anyway, I'm making a classic old-skool platform game. (Based on this 10 year old original)
Controls are (so far) easy.. Left and right (dpad or left thumbstick), and button (O) to jump.
You can download the test apk here (link no longer available) and then sideload onto your OUYA however best you do do that.
The test level is fairly large, but has no death/exit/other stuff. This is pretty much just for testing Munky's physics, and getting the right sort of feel for the game.
I'm pretty confident that I've got the feel "just right", but I've decided to see what other folk feel, so if you'd like to give the test level a quick trial, that'd be nice.
The three "important" things to test are in the area to the lower-left.. (Start the game, run left, fall a bit..)
1. Can you Wall-Jump comfortably onto the platform.
2. Can you comfortably jump your way back to the top.
3. Can you comfortably Wall-Jump all the way back up this lengthy "chimney" area, from the bottom.
Other than those tests, feel free to run about and get a feel for the engine.
Let me know what you do/don't like about the engine, and the controls.
