Create a platformer game via LiveCode?

Post by ubunturox104 » Tue Mar 22, 2016 7:27 pm

Aloha,

I am working on a game for Windows/Mac via LiveCode, which is mainly a platformer game. I have heavily researched this on Google, but I can't find anything useful. Is it possible to make a platformer game, like Portal the Flash Version, in LiveCode, and how can I do it? Any help is appreciated.

No. LC is really not up to the job. You better give gamemaker a try. http://www.yoyogames.com Has al the tools you need.

Just another option for anyone interested... The scripting language Lua (http://www.lua.org/about.html) in combination with Corona or Love2D seems supported and used too (ie one can find many games in the wild build with this, frequently source is available too.. in contrast to lc..). For a Lua IDE one can look at https://studio.zerobrane.com . Looks promissing and compact with more helpfull features than you will find in the lc ide... it even has "live coding"! ;). All available for free. But I strongly suggest giving them a donation if youre going to find the product useful. Yup its possible to create cross platform games with this set. Windows, mac, ios, android.

Then theres the HTML5 platform Phaser.io . But Im not too fond of these hacked html5 frameworks where one uses Javascript (ugh) icm html css etc etc. Still.. it has its uses and free to try. Btw I dont know how lc dares to throw a black friday html5 promotion out while the product is nowhere near finished... and still a very expensive addon too...

You should also look at this example in LiveCode.
