Up Topic Gosu / Gosu Showcase / Captain Ruby with Wall-jumping Ability
- By Maverick Date 2009-05-17 20:25 Edited 2010-02-18 21:29
I've heard of Ruby and was interested in it but never got to it. I've always used C++. Since I'm having a time getting Gosu and C++ to be nice to each other while jlnr fixes that, I decided to buckle down, learn Ruby, and do something cool with Ruby and Gosu.
So three days ago I downloaded the Ruby IDE and Gosu for Ruby and found a few tutorials. Overall I'm amazed at Ruby's simplicity to make things work. It's actually kind of fun too. So in three days I can already make games in it. :]

Anyway, I made Captain Ruby the ability to wall-jump. For those who don't know, wall-jumping is where the character's vertical speed is greatly dampened and the character "latches" and slides down the wall emitting dust particles. At the wall-jumping position, the character can launch off of the wall and reach other platforms. I hope you like. :]

Awesome, is the code available? :)

I plan to release it soon. I've been busy so I haven't commented it yet. Also, I need to change horizontal movement a tad. I want the character to arc upwards when jumping off of a wall Megaman X style. Shouldn't take long but I haven't gotten to that yet. :]
