    Some newer examples may be more accurate but I wasn’t sure, for instance, is “Almost Impossible” considered a sticky jump more than a platformer or is it a version of an impossible game (title aside)? I will edit the post as suggestions come in.

    With the release of the new presets in BB2 and with your feedback I will edit and update the list to newer and multiple examples (post length permitting), especially to ones made in bb and maybe it can become a sticky post in Gameplay for all boxers to easily reference

    Avoidance - Drag character around screen or use arrow.

    Hi, Is 'Helicopter' a game preset in BB2? I can't see it in the list is all and believe this is the preset I need for a game I'm looking to build.

    Thanks

    @bbnewbie

    I don't want to give you false hope, please understand I have not tried this. But I think a game that is similar to this should be possible. But it certainly should be considered very advanced. Please check out this game for a similar type game play:
    http://www.buildbox.com/forum/index.php?threads/88mileracer-3d-racing-game.835/

    To duplicate exactly you would need some sort of trick to rotate the game pieces but I'm not sure how that would be done off the top of my head.

    i don't have any clue how the character controlled in sky as it use BB 2.0 that i don't have as for mars mountain it use portrait drop down settings and yes it's made with BB 1.0 And has been updated with BB 2.0 however you can make it only in BB 1.0 easly.

    SKY was created with a very early prototype for Buildbox 2. Was created with Paths and Ghost Jump if I remember correctly. It should still be able to be created in Buildbox 2.

    Hi @Andy - is there a link to how it was done ? looking at BB2, is there a specific module I should choose if I want to go the SKY way ?

    There is no tutorial I know of right now.... Just add a Path, put a couple obstacles on the Path. Then add the Ghost Jump component to the character. Examine the game in preview with debug turned on so you can see what is happening. We will be doing much more in the way of tutorials after the official 2.0 release.

    Thank you @Andy , will do. Which one of the presets would you use and if not then what should it be to have it setup like SKY when it comes to the view point, the angle of the screen - I mean if the character is going down all the time - how do I do that ?
