Well, Pogostick system is perfect, i think that it's a bit dead because of a lack of interest...

Well, to me it's another of those ideas that kind of fails in the execution, simply because it's sounds so good, yet doesn't really work as well, even if the system is perfect.

To be honest, what would improve this would be a revision in the game mechanics to make it more playable on a basic level, and also to make it more like an average platformer.

So that'd mean removing vertical aim (aimmode 1 for all monsters and however you'd handle that for the player) and hitscans (replace them with projectiles, like Action Doom), stopping things from moving sideways so that dodging is purely a vertical thing (be sure to keep the high jump height and crouching) and making it possible to jump up on to ledges in the same fashion as Mario (ie. you can jump up onto them, but not jump down through them), which would be acheived through silent teleportation onto a platform behind the lower level one. Also making sure that monster activation is limited largely to whats on screen would help. The camera being zoomable is quite handy though, so I'd leave that.

This way you could do it properly. Stopping moving sideways would probably involve player blocking lines at the players width, and monster blocking lines wherever necessary. I know this is a lot in the way of changes, but it'd make the whole thing work better, and be easier to play.

You can use GetPlayerInput for more 2D-oriented controls nowadays.

Okay, seriously, does nobody look at the stickied threads before diving forty pages into the forum? There's a thread for this kind of thing right at the top of the first page. I mean, I get that it's really not my place to be making a big deal about this, but this is like the tenth time I've seen this happen in the past month and that's kind of ridiculous.

I hate to bump an ancient thread, but uh... someone pointed out I worked on this, and I don't remember EVER working on this, but sure enough... there's my name in the credits, and I have a bunch of posts... anyone know why it died at 0.9? It seemed to play really well and was programmed amazingly for something that came out over four years ago.

The main reason is maps. I don't have time to do all the maps on my own, so if there are more people with interest, we could bring this to an end

I'm interested but I incredibly suck at mapping, so gulp.
Good luck with this anyway.
