Ninja Rope Engine

5 years ago I attempted to create a ninja game, one where the prominent feature would be a ninja rope (like the one in the Worms games). I had the basics down, but I was never able combine the platform engine and ninja rope engine with eachother and the collision detection was a mess.

Some weeks ago someone asked me about the engine I made and it rekindled my interest in it. With the knowledge I have now I fixed most of the problems. The engine still has a few bugs, but the basics are there. The rope itself doesn't interact with the background, though I think it's possible to do with a lot of effort

Left/Right: Walk, swing left/right
Up/Down: Contract/detract rope
Space: Jump. Press space again to shoot ninja rope.

Download is in mfa format and is open source. No extensions needed. The engine may be used freely, the sprites not.

pretty good except the rope doesn't bend around obstacles..

I know, I wrote that in the description I don't think that's impossible to do, but it'd probably be much more CPU intensive to check for collisions with the rope.

Awesome engine! I learnt heaps from it too.

Very nice, and works well. Would have been nice to have been able to fire the rope straght up as well though.
