Lost Spirit Platformer

Submitted by Veronnis
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Welcome to The Lost Spirit! I made this game for my brother who didn't think Warcraft 3 could support a platformer. I honestly only thought it would take a couple of days, but it took probably 5 or so to make.

The Lost Spirit is a platformer with smooth motion, fun graphics concepts and a Very easy to use custom level maker and tutorial for doing so (In trigger editor).

This map is unprotected and includes a template map so that you can make your own, and if you do I'd love for you to post your maps in this thread so I can play them too!

Credits are listed in the trigger editor, in game. After reading submission rules, also here:

1. Avoid playing music through the sound channel. Use the other Play Music trigger. 2. The invisible icons of movement have no DISBTNs (they look like green squares on pause/F10). You should also make the DISBTNs the same as the icon. I suggest...

    i love your idea. i really enjoy playing especially when i jump in the flame. i didn't seen any problems at all in the game ;)
    -the terrain is good but i have a suggestion its better you add moon and a shooting star - it will arrive in a few minutes ( just my opinion its up to you if you like my idea )
    -add changelog- if there's some changes in your map

    Thanks Trebla Ratilla! I actually thought about the shooting star too, I wasn't sure if I'd add it since players can make non-space maps. But if I think of more changes / get more suggestions I'll probably add it to my base level when I update it :)

    It would be neat to add some selfdestruct command if anyone got stuck. Cause I got stuck on my first playthrough in the frozen/speed buff section when I jumped over the spikes. Took a second to figure that part out :D All in all great map, loved the atmosphere and gameplay. It's quite wonderful to see the many possibilities of the editor tool.

    Thanks so much Alxen.

    Also you too Knecht! And thanks for the specificity of where you got stuck I'll check out that area and see what I can fix, including if necessary a self-explode command lol.

    Edit: Oh; I made that wall way too short >< I'll make an update after work today. (Now Applied!)

    It is not multiplayer. I thought about making it multiplayer and adding a few "teamwork" concepts to the game, but as this was actually just a random side-project for my brother I decided to invest the extra time back into my main project which is an immersive 3 player co-op RPG.

    tho it doesnt have to be about co-op, it can be just whoever finishs the map faster with score and stuff.

    Ironically that never crossed my mind. If I ever add a multiplayer version I'll make sure to PM you.

    I saw the video. It looks like a mix of Mario and other platformer games.

    I suggest uploading the template version in the same post (first one/opening) instead of leaving it out in a different post. This way, people will download both maps (in an archive).

    Anyways, a good game that comes with a template.

    Approved.

    Always check/recheck the Map Submission Rules! (Map Submission Rules)

    These will help make a better description:


    Screenshots could attract more players to download your work. Make the best of them.

    A detailed changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.

    To make your work run smoother, fix the so called leaks: Triggers - Memory Leaks and Custom Scripts

    Creative and cool.
    I don't have the energy to write a review right now, but this was nice. Could be smoother in some senses, and improved in some ways, but still good. I really like the scarce and minimalistic level layout too.

    I tinkered with a very similiar thing once. This inspired me again... :)
    Good job man!

    @deepstrasz, thank you for your remarks. I had tried to create disbtns for the icons, but could never get them to implement properly thinking maybe it doesn't work with certain UI icons, but I'll have to try again. Also, thank you for your review and suggestion to include the template in the archive. I didn't notice I could upload more than one map. I'll update it!

    @Rufus, thank you for your comments! If your game ever gets finished I'd love to get a message about it. Alternatively if you don't have the time, feel free to play around with my template to make your own fun level!
