Flippy Flop

Flippy Flop

Apparently there's a game jam going down soon about a recent mobile game sensation. I had a few hours to spare today and I wasn't being productive on my big game, so I decided to whip something up in Otter.

Not really a game jam game, but more like a game doodle.

Hi, Kyle. Ssory for off top. I use Flixel, but this does not matter. Recently, I try to implement tail for my character, and don't know how to do that. In your example show what I want to reach. If you could please explain how to do that.

In this game to create a trail I just made an object called "FlippyTrail." FlippyTrail is an entity that just has a box graphic similar to the player, and shrinks down over time. After a half of a second the trail has shrunk down to 0, so I remove it from the scene. I create a FlippyTrail on the player object once every update.

Hi! My name's Kyle, and I make video games most of the time in Denver, Colorado. Here you will find my thoughts, games, websites, doodles, and other stuff like that. I worked on Snapshot, Offspring Fling, and a whole bunch of other games. I also created and maintain Otter, a 2d game making framework. If you want to get a hold of me use the form on the bottom of the page, leave a comment, or just tweet at me. I try to post three times a week. Thanks for stoppin' by! You're the coolest.
