You made the parallax background, nice ! I already told you but I love all those little details ! :)

Will you implement double jumping ? It could add a little more challenge.

Thank you all very much for the kind words!

I don't think I'll add double jumping but I will add that the longer you press A the higher you jump.

update 2018-01-27

I reworked the toolbox to have category selection and descriptions for everything! All text is work in progress.

As always, here's some footage:

Thank you so much for the kind words, it really means a lot!

UPDATE 2018-02-09

This week I finally added variable jump height, ghost jump (the ability to still jump for a few milliseconds after falling off a platform) and a worm enemy!

After the worm you could maybe add a bird too ?  (i think its should be the good size, they are neutral grey atm because i don't know wich color you would and even if you want add a bird  ;) ) So it's just an idea.



Edit, j'ai changé d'idée, je te mets des versions couleur

Oh yeah I'll definitely make a bird enemy :) With the option to make them patrol horizontally or vertically. There will also be a mouse that can climb up walls and ceilings and a fish that jumps out of the water (will add water for that which you'll drown in when you land in it).

Note: those are all ideas I'd love to add but that doesn't mean they'll be in the game for sure.

Also, I appreciate you trying to help :) The birds are really blurry though and still too big! But don't worry, I'll be able to draw something that works :)
