I'd like to make a set of challenges that DM developers can use to test their ability and knowledge of different libraries. I'll start with the Sidescroller library since it has always been my favorite.
The challenges will be simple features you'll have to implement. I'll create a hub entry where you download a skeleton environment - it provides you with some code, icons, maps, and descriptions of what you need to create. The challenges will be simple things that would commonly be done with the library. They'll start off simple and get more complex. Here are my current ideas for challenges (in no particular order):
* double jumping
* icy floors
* sticky floors (slower movement)
* wall climbing
* collectable items (collected by walking over them)
* no slowdown while in the air
This post is a heads up that this is what I'm also working on (don't expect it too soon) but also a request for ideas. If you have an idea for a simple challenge that would test a user's ability to use the library, I'd very much appreciate hearing them.
