Platformer extension demo

Hey folks,

I’ve been working on a package for making platformers in arcade and it is now far enough along that I thought I’d post a demo!

The main features include:

  1. A whole new physics engine
  2. Support for sloped surfaces in tilemaps
  3. Moving platforms

The actual extension can be found here: https://github.com/riknoll/pxt-platformer

If anyone is interested in using it, I can post a guide on how I made the tilemaps. For now, it’s JavaScript only. I’m hoping in the future to make building levels easier and to add block APIs.
