Hello! I've been killing myself trying to find an answer for way too long. I'm trying to create a simple side scrolling platform game. So, my question is, which direction should i go in? Tile based or art based? So far i have a jpg that extends far beyond the stage and if i wanted to make a real level then instead of having it 480x2000 i would need to make it more like 480x5000 at the least. Im interested in tile based but all the guides i've found are rather dated. if i could get some insight and maybe pointed in a good direction, i would be very grateful. below is a link to what i've made so far. its just to test code that i've learned not to impress anyone so dont hate!! Sprite Test.swf i cant upload the swf here so there it is.
