Hey folks,
How do I create a game like Atari's Decathlon?
The player must press some control, eg. left arrow, after must press right arrow to make a player to run?

I loved Decathlon, Summer Games, ...

All games are basically the same, only some changes in the animation (long jump, hurdle, ...).

I would start with the running system and a varSpeed variable.
- Keys: after left only right increases varSpeed (after right the left must be pressed)
- every 0.x seconds varSpeed decreases (player gets slower)
That's basically the whole system - of course there must be a build up in speed ( you can't just go to 100% speed at once)

depending on the varSpeed you make the animation of the player slower or faster.

  • System > On load failed | system > scroll to obj_Forum

Greetings,
those tips are great @fm4fanAT, I already had created a game to test using similar mechanics.
I'll try to fix the game, as you told me.

love your graphics - especially the one for your new game
I think it's a great idea to use the greek style
