What makes a good game - Platformers.

Post by Sparx the Cy-Wolf on Tue Jun 09, 2009 11:34 am

First topic message reminder :

Somebody probably already has thought of this already, but anyway......
So what makes a good platformer, Proper meaning less hardcore types like metalslug Twisted Evil or adventure games like Metroid Fusion.

The gameplay is very important too. Have you ever played à Platform Shooter played with the keyboard? The mouse is a better way to play.

Making a good Platformer takes time and patience.
Here's a few good tips:

1. Make some nice effects and deep pits.
2. Add something original to the gameplay... like the ability to travel to different times within the level.
3. Give the player some unique power or weapon besides being able to jump abnormally.
