This project contains ten features for you to implement:
  1. Double Jumping
  2. Jumping & Gravity
  3. Sticky Floors
  4. Icy Floors
  5. Collectable Items
  6. Doors
  7. Pushable Boxes
  8. Wall Climbing
  9. Moving Platforms
  10. Enemies
  11. Ledge Grabbing
  12. Follow AI
  13. Hazards (Spikes & Lasers)
The challenges start off simple and tend to get more and more complex. They require a familiarity with the Sidescroller library and the vars/procs it provides. Some of the challenges just require using one or two vars defined by the library, some take a lot more work. If you have any questions about a challenge, don't hesitate to post on the Sidescroller Challenges forum.

I just posted an update to add three more challenges (#s 11-13). They don't build on the difficulty of the previous challenges, they're comparable to #5-7. Challenges 8 and 10 are still the toughest.
