This template will provide you with all the basics you need to make a great Endless Runner game for iOS and Android. This is a simpler template than the others, but still great for getting your head around a few of the challengers of making such a game. Features include:
- Never ending level (randomised sections)
- Simple Parallax scrolling
- Distance/Scoring system
- Sprite animation
- Jumping character to reach the platforms (1-way platforms)
- Collectible stars
- Vines that kill the player
- DIRECTOR and STORYBOARD examples for screen transitions.
This Endless Runner template is very easy to build upon for your own iOS or Android game. The sections of the level have been designed so you can easily add or edit them to suit the needs of your game. For example if you wanted to make it more interesting with extra sections all you would have to do is edit the “sectionData.lua” file by copying and pasting one of my sections, then editing it to suit your needs.
You could also easily add in more enemies and collectibles as the code has been set up in such a way that it should be easy for you to find where and what to do.
The code was written in Lua for CoronaSDK version 935 and the download includes the full source code, images, PSD and sound files. The code is fully commented and if you have any particular questions about a bit you don’t understand i’d be more than happy to explain.
If the code doesn’t run on your version of Corona then i would suggest upgrading to a newer version. The images for this template were soured from two people, Biffy Beebe thanks to her Indie graphics bundle and Vicki Wenderlich. If you want to use the images for your own game i would recommend that you purchase the indie graphics bundle so that you actually own the images.
