Hey guys!

A WIP remake of the classic NES game Mega Man 2, made by SiksGames. If you can, test it out a little and report me any bug, weirdness on physics/movimentation or just tell me if you liked it so far or not! :)

Controls:
Press [S] to Jump. Sorry, no shooting or sliding in this version.

Links updated on September 18:
Scirra Arcade Link
Dropbox Link (recomended right now)



Lastest edit (September 18):

Hey everyone! It's been a while since I updated, huh? Well, life kinda gets in the way, bla bla bla.

So.
When I first started to make this engine, it was just to learn really, about C2, game programming in general, performance and a few minor tweaks. I got much better at it all and I think this was the time to make a big project. I thought of this engine and why not remake the great classic that is Mega Man 2 for the NES? (specially now with the awesome announcement of Mighty No. 9)

But I never intended to make a carbon copy of the game. I ran into these awesome 8 bit Mega Man sprites from deviantArt user ~Availation and that is the art direction I want the characters to have (of course, with his full permission to xD), aside from slightly different game feel in general, considering it's an HTML5 game.

So, what's new in this new demo? Nothing much, nothing very exciting to see. I remade all Mega Man's animations and the game has the viewport of a NES game (which was completely incorrect in older versions). Also, I added some music and a title screen, because those tunes rock! And I really like that title screen too :P All that aside from the really low level aspects of the game itself.

Just a warning, I uploaded the game to Scirra Arcade, but I can't find a way to expand the viewport (kinda like the old Node-webkit problem from before r144) So, if anyone knows how to fix this, it'd be a great help! Anyway, just try it out on the DropBox link above, should work just fine.


See ya!

I found a bug, when you slide under the platform, and jump.. well.. you fall down the screen

But this is a really good beggining, and I encourage you to continue

And that is why you shall respect the bug reports guidelines, not only giving a capx is making the bug reproductible in one click in a situation they can work with (less time wasted trying to reproduce vague instructions) but also it helps filtering false positives.

Game design is all about decomposing the core of your game so it becomes simple instructions.

Huh I thought I had that fixed? Maybe some another version, I don't know.
Anyway, thanks. I'll take a look at that. ;)

It's pretty slick so far, I gotta admit!

Though, if you hit the up arrow, Mega Man does a little hop.

Can't jump? Now that's weird. You are pressing the correct button right?

not bug so far Imo, to make so megaman Slide with 2 buttons, you can check if down is pressed, then in a sub event, on S clicked, and in this subEvent, you put your sliding actions

You would also have to vrifie, for the jumping, than down is NOT pressed

Hope that will helps you

The problem is that I can't put two "trigger" conditions in the same event. We have two buttons: Down and S. The correct way would be like this:


(The first event is the one I'm currently using in the playable demo)

The thing is: it just doesn't work. Mega Man simply jumps in this situation. I'll have to verify latter where exactly is the problem to fix it.


Also, I'm posting a new demo right now, with:
(1) a somewhat buggy ladder. It works fine most of the time, the bug is when you are climbing it and then you press S to leave it while overlapping the floor. When on a ladder, the red floor disables it's Solid behavior, and enables it back when not a ladder. Thing is, when the player is "crushed" by the floor, it causes some glitches. Is there any way I can check this "chushing"?

(2) shooting, though I'm having trouble with the image point, for some reason it is not working right now... Also, no animations though. Those are gonna be tricky...

They are both very incomplete, but I'm working on them.
That's pretty much it.
