Danger Droids: Create a Platformer in GameSalad, Step by Step
Danger Droids: An Enemy, the HUD, and Pickups

Let's continue our five-part screencast series on creating a platformer in GameSalad. In the first part, we installed the software and set up the main objects for our game. This time, we'll lay out the geometry for the first level.

Play the Game

If the embedded game doesn't work, try playing it on the GameSalad Arcade.

Use the arrow keys to move and the space bar to jump. Find the key and reach the exit in all three levels to complete the game!

In the third part, we'll finish off the entire first level, add a HUD, look at the layouts for the second and third levels, and see how to lay out your own level designs in the game.
