About

Hello, this is my first submission to the site. For the past few days, I've been working on this platformer framework. The aim of this project is to experiment with different techniques, and create something fun. I have decided to limit the graphics to a Gameboy (DMG)-esque palette.

The blops in the middle each demonstrate a different animation command.

If everything goes to plan, I would like to expand on the framework with more features (including slopes) for a future cart. In the meantime, feel free to pull apart the code , just remember that it's under the CC license. :3

It's a nice start!
Never seen a jump arc like this, it seems like the character accelerates upward during the jump. Pretty interesting.

The pallete is cool too.

Yeah, the jumping is incredibly buggy in this. I've completely changed it, should have a new version up soon.
