Add a 'Jump through' platform


This version of the tutorial is deprecated. Please refer to the new platformer tutorial for the completely revised version of the tutorial. The equivalent information to the current tutorial can be found in Part 3.

For now, all of the platforms are rock solid: you can't jump on them when the player is below them. We can create new platforms that can be jumped on through them.

Create the new object

Create a new Sprite object, add an animation and choose the image called bridgeLogs:

You can rename the object so that it's called SmallBridge:

Make it a "jump-thru" platform

For now, the object is not considered as a platform. Open the object editor and switch to the Behaviors tab. Add the behavior called Platform. Finally, choose "Jumpthru platform" in the list when you click on the "Type" field:

Launch the preview!

You can now launch a preview and see that you can jump on the bridge!

Also, as usual, don't forget to save your game!

Next step: add backgrounds objects

The level is still quite empty. Let's add some background objects to make it more pretty. We'll then add coins to collect and enemies!
