    logic transforms... change position velocity and scale... scale being adding a minus sign to the y scale so he flips, position to the other side of the game, velocity that keeps him pushing against the platform? just thinking, haven't tried it... gravity might make that difficult... maybe a transform that changes gameplay to change gravity and then velocity wouldn't matter ??

    We made this game in the GameSalad engine. We would love to remake it in Buildbox but you cannot add variables or custom logic. For example you can't tell buildbox to only switch the gravity if the player is touching the ground. It's a bummer really. In buildbox 2 you can make a button to change the Y velocity but someone playing could just spam it the float along the middle. A custom logic option in the future would be amazing.

    you can do that but it's not going to give the same effect or only if you play with graphics however a similar gameplay was used in terry monkey climber and also fatal in other way... iam also making a game that in same sense with only using BB 1.3

    yes i tried playing with gravity itself but that was creating ambiguous effect.

    The problem here is, again, a player can spam the screen and float the character along the stage without dying. Build Box doesn't let you add logic like if player is touching ground then jump is false else jump is true Then a button with logic like If jump is false then jump button is unlocked else locked.

    I hope one day Build Box adds the sort of basic logic. If Build Box had Game Salads logic nodes or if Game Salad had BuildBox's level system and effect, it'd be a near perfect mobile game engine. For now BuildBox is the easiest to use and has better support for iOS AND Android so it's the winner. It's lack of customizable logic is holding it back though. I have no doubt that BuildBox 2 is going to be build to address this in the future.

    Not with the set up they are using. It's not a jump it's a velocity change.
