Making your platformer more hard


First one

This one is pretty simple, put terrain/props far apart so It’s more hard to jump over to them

Second one

Invisible platforms


You can use barriers or transparent props, I used barriers.


It makes it hard to like jump to the next one because you can’t see it.

Third one

Alternating lasers in your path


Use a laser beam manager (I used these → [1] settings)

And put them wherever you want to make your game more hard >:)

Fourth one

Slanted props


Put props at such an angle that when you land on them, you slide.
I used a blackboard leg for this

Fifth one

As @Blackhole927 mentioned, we can use laser spam & slope jumps to make your platformer much more hard.


You just, spam lasers and make slope jumps. That easy

Making your platformer better


First one

Make sure to playtest your game and make sure it’s not impossible, as in people can actually complete your game.

I’ve had some fun with creative platforming. That was what I had on day 1, I’ve got much worse now :slight_smile:

Anyway though, you should probably mention laser spam and slope jumps, they’re two pretty easy was to make absurd levels of difficulty.

Indeed- honestly, nobody has actually complained about anything except the first jump. I assume the first jump is only the complaining point because most people have never experienced a map that hard, and they’re still accepting its difficulty. After that though, they start to have fun and I don’t get anymore complaints.

Sometimes those are fun but often they are actually impossible
(like 2 lasers and when 1 is on the other is off) but its the only way to go thru…

Simple solution: Playtest your map to make sure it’s possible lol. Was just doing that today to make sure nothing was too easy or too hard.
