If you plan to add some features to Platypus, here's my prioritized wishlist :D :

  • customizable movement arcs (acceleration, movement at top speed, deceleration)
  • jump down from one way platforms by holding down and jump (also there is an o.w.p. bug, when the player's collision is intersecting the o.w.p. collision and player wants to jumps at that moment)
  • dash (in any direction (to cover downward slams too), during jumping or on the ground (dodge))
  • wall contact - hanging on the edge, sliding on the wall, climbing up the edge (ladders)
  • windy areas (or general possibility to apply force to the object - constant wind obstacle or instant force pound, like when hitted - to perform a kickback)
  • swim (2D water bouyancy simulation maybe?)
  • icy floors that are slippery (or general different friction?)
  • pushable blocks
