Platform Escape 2.01s

Submitted by gameslayer001
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Host map Arrange game
Just like any other maze, platform style~!
===========
Use the arrow keys to move your unit through the levels.
Other Controls will be explained in game.
===========
Pretend the game is 2d, which means the camera will face directly down, and the perspective will be of that from a 2d game.
===========
I thought it was a neat concept, try it out for yourselves.
===========
Commands:

+Red Only+
-kill [color] (Kills the unit color)
-kick [color] (Kicks the player color)

+Everyone+
-view xxxx (Sets the camera distance from unit to fit the player's need)
-continues (Shows the amount of continues the players have)
-watch [color] (Locks the camera to that player unit color. Must be dead in order to perform this command)
-unwatch (Unlocks the camera if command -watch was used)
-die (Suicide)

===========
The game starts out with 20 continues. There are secret continues hidden about the levels, and every time everyone dies the level restarts with one less continue.
===========
3 Parts with 3 Bosses
===========
The game also has a few special objects the players have to use in order to beat the level.
The Special Objects consist of...
-Springs
-Reverse Gravity Totem
-Disappearing Springs
-Switches
-Copter (DK Barrel related)

Other objects include...
-Warps
-Disappearing Terrain
===========

Well, was that explaining enough?! TRY IT OUT!!!..

    [+] Absolutely funny game (reminds me to classical minigames ^^)
    [+] Much work went into this
    [+] Uses custom music
    [~] Requires patience, not everybody's taste :grin: (no worries, it is mine ;D)
    [-] Lack of doodads - well, I played till level 2...maybe there ARE doodads...

    Thanks, alot of work did go into this ;).

    Yeah and I agree theres very few doodads, or none at all haha, but thanks for your comment ;).

    The game can only be beatable if you have a good/fair connection and a delay reducer of some sort. If you have a ton of delay when you move your guy, then its going to get pretty tough around level 3.

    Just keep trying at it and ull get it soon enough!! :D

    5/5 Highly recommended. If you like puzzles/escapes, this is definitely for you. I see no shortcomings other than not turning off certain parts of the map, causing more delay among slower computers.

    Ok, scratch my last, if you want to go above and beyond, you can start by

    1). adding a place to show continues left, number of deaths, and number of beaten levels (maybe even just in the gold/lumber/food area, or on a multiboard).

    2). Activating only certain parts of the map at a time would be a big help in lag/delay.

    3). Add a point system that is shown on a multiboard that accesses how many levels that player has beaten, how many times they died, and how many extra continues they got. (though this may be a bad idea if it discourages new players).

    4). Add a difficulty setting that changes speed of the wisp, speed of enemy units, and gravity.

    :) I finally just got to area 3. Its good stuff, I hope to get a lot better soon. I found a bug where I fell through a healing ward, happened maybe 5 or 6 times now, if its something that's easily checked/fixed, do it, otherwise, its not a big deal.

    One other thing. I have to warn others who read these comments and play.

    WARNING: This map is highly addictive! You may not be able to stop for several hours at a time and you may stop going to work, going to class and possibly even sleeping and eating. Do NOT download this if you cannot afford to lose any or all of these things.

    Edit: Btw, there's a healing ward in world 2, last level that has like a 35% chance it kills you (pushes you into a wall no matter what). It's right before you get to a bunch of reverse gravities on the bottom right side. (Your suppose to bounce on it, then float to a reverse gravity, then avoid a bunch of them and then land on another ward).

    Haha sweet im glad you enjoy it :)

    Yeah when you jump on a healing ward you jump at different heights, its hard to notice but sometimes you dont jump as high when you jump on them. Its really weird, so ill fix that soon and update it for ya ;).

    EDIT:
    Alright updated it, added that multiboard you wanted and fixed that issue on the last level of world 2 ;). Could of done more but didnt have much time to add in some more things, but i hope your satisfied.

    You may want to rename the map to Platform Escape 1.9s, it still says 1.8s when you see it.

    Known bugs:

    -If you pause the game, you can still press left and right to move your guy little by little, lol.

    -If you are moving and press enter to chat, and release the direction you were going, you dont stop.

    -If you kick someone and that person is the only one left, the level doesnt restart.

    I dont know if this has been fixed yet, but if you hold Left or Right and tap the opposite direction (in 1.8s) it launches you in the tapped direction at amazing speeds.

    Do you know of any way to correct the lag bug (its the same as the second one you described except when someone lags)?

    Thanks ragingspedhorn, and TM-Magic, the delay cant be fixed 100%, but if you get a delay reducer and have a decent connection, and dont get a fullhouse, then everyone will have little delay/lag.

    Er, what I meant was, when someone lags while your holding a key, it keeps going in that direction, unless you hold the opposite direction which makes u stop. While your stopped you can hit enter and type, but you can't let go. Is there a way to maybe add a chat trigger to debug it?
