Update 1-5: I thought it was about time the Spiders got some animation love. How’s that look?
Update 1-4: Fixes to the camera, that running animation is finally in (have to be going pretty fast now), half of a new kick animation, minor collision fixes. Fixed a problem with predicting the ground, which messes up only one background changing jumppad? Ugh… Oh well
Edit: So I was making a video for some of the new features and my hard drive and video card both decided to die at the same time. I’m back up and running now (with an old laptop drive instead of an SSD, boo), but the video’s going to take a bit longer now.
Another post, another apology for not posting in awhile! Things have been extra crazy over here lately, but I think it’s time to start talking about the next step for The Fancy Pants Adventures.
I’ve been rebuilding FPA from the ground up in ActionScript 3 (yep, finally made the jump), and focusing on the very core of the Fancy Pants games. I’ve been polishing and rethinking the movement and controls, along with adding a few new features that AS3 allows, and I finally have something to show off.
This is pretty quickly thrown together (no preloader or sound, sorry!) but I think you’ll be able to get a feel for the new handling on Fancy Pants Man there, as well as check out a few new features for the engine.
The focus for me now is refining older features and better utilizing those features without piling more on, as I tend to do with each new game. But, I’ll be talking more about the future after the holidays!
I threw level 1 of World 1 in there too for comparison, though there’s one new hidden level in there, also (was actually supposed to be something there in the first place, but I guess I forgot?).
Play the FPA AS3 preview!
And of course:
