Platform Game - Part 1

This is the beginning of a platform game I worked on with my Flash programming class.

You can use the cursor keys to move this character around, but that's about it for now.

This illustrates one method of making a basic walk cycle (by tracing frames from a set of Muybridge photographs), and how to do background scrolling.

Future versions of this game will use a more physically based movement system that uses velocity, friction and gravity, and will have more interactive game elements.
