Add a 'Jump through' platform

This version of the tutorial is deprecated. Please refer to the Platformer Tutorial, Part 1: Getting Started for the completely revised version of the tutorial. The equivalent information to the current tutorial can be found in Platformer Tutorial, Part 3: Create Platforms.

For now, all of the platforms are rock solid: you can't jump on them when the player is below them. We can create new platforms that can be jumped on through them.

Create the new object

Create a new Sprite object, add an animation and choose the image called bridgeLogs:

You can rename the object so that it's called SmallBridge:

Make it a "jump-thru" platform

For now, the object is not considered as a platform. Open the object editor and switch to the Behaviors tab. Add the behavior called Platform. Finally, choose “Jumpthru platform” in the list when you click on the “Type” field:

Launch the preview!

You can now launch a preview and see that you can jump on the bridge!

Also, as usual, don't forget to save your game!

Next step: add backgrounds objects

The level is still quite empty. Let's add some background objects to make it more pretty.
We'll then add coins to collect and enemies!
