So guys, I'm extending this question to you - what would you want to see? What kind of enemies do you like, what kinds of platforming techniques do you want to see programmed into this game?

Different guns with cool effects added to them (like a bazooka kicks you back).
A system either based on picking up powerups in-game or a money system like in Zombie Gun would be nice to see.

Alright, so after thinking about my game for a while, I've decided to take a different approach that will hopefully be a lot more epic. Instead of guns (which could break a lot of things with long range), I'll give the player a variety of melee attacks and just polish it to give it a nice platformer feel.

Ledge hanging is certainly a possibility, but I'm not sure what money could buy. Hats maybe?

Hats and skins would be the obvious options. otherwise, maybe add buyable 'special effects'(e.g. fireworks) at the end of a level or new tile sets.

Ninjas don't have magic.

They have throwing stars though ;D

Actually some ninjas have magic. I think magic or throwing stars could both be cool. Depends on the nature of the game though.

Alright, magic it is. I'll see what I can do. I've spent a lot of time fine-tuning the player movement engine so that it feel natural. This involved adding a slight "stickiness" to the wallsliding, fixing walljumping, adding player inertia, and just all-around tweaking of values. I've also done quite a bit of optimization and taken out greyscale so that it'll run on all devices. Here's a quick screenie (everything's running at 6MHz):



I've attached the screenshot level so you can test out the movement and tell me what you don't like about it.

(I haven't put in the new sprites yet, I'll do that eventually :P )

Runer's helped me optimize the particle engine to perfection, and I've also gotten dynamic tilemapping working! I'll probably make some more detailed tilesets in the future, but I've just made a simple line tileset for now.

wow, this is awesome! I really like it, and wall jumping gives these cool dust pixels :D
I also like that the walls aren't solid now, so just borders :D
