About the Switch2D

A Switch2D is an object used to toggle another object's state, triggering a new behavior.

We can find a good example of a switch mechanism in this Ori and the Blind Forest Mount Horuโ€™s moving platform puzzle.

Here, the designers combined two Switch2Ds with two MovingPlatform2Ds to create a platforming puzzle where players should avoid some Hazard2Ds.

The lava streams kill Ori immediately, so the player must find a way to reach the top-left portion of the area. For that, they need to interact with these levers that toggle the moving platforms' movement. In this case, the levers are Switch2Ds.

Coming next

Get ready for an exciting update to the Platformer Essentials Cookbook. In the upcoming weeks I'll start the custom chapters, requested by our amazing supporters who bought the Custom Recipe reward for some extra pennies.

These custom chapters are tailored to meet these supporters' specific needs and desires, and I'm thrilled to share them with you.

The first custom chapter is a real game-changer. It's all about creating a wall jump mechanic like the one in the classic Megaman X game.

This chapter was requested by Poila Pan and is sure to add a new level of excitement to your platformer games. Imagine being able to scale walls and reach new heights in your game. With this recipe, you'll be able to do just that!

So, what are you waiting for? If you're a fan of platformer games, or just want to expand your knowledge of game development, be sure to get your copy of the Platformer Essentials Cookbook TODAY. With all these chapters, you'll be able to take your platformer game to the next level!
