Spike is hungry for gems (as usual). Help him find some!
This is a simple platforming/sidescrolling test game for the game engine I'm working on to hopefully create a longer, more complete MLP game in the future. Enjoy!

There are quite a few bugs! If (when) you encounter them, please let me know in the comments. Getting temporarily stuck in walls/rocks (especially when flying) is a pretty common one.


UPDATE 1/29/2013: Wow! Over 83,000 plays!? It means so much to me that people continue to play this and demand updates! Although I've continued to improve the underlying game engine for use in other projects, the dynamic (custom colored) sprites in this game cause significant performance problems in Flash. That's why I haven't updated this game in 1.75 years, even though I said I would. :( And you may have noticed the games I have released since have used non-customizable character sprites (Pinkie Pie, Twilight, Fluttershy). I hope to at some point release another game that allows you to customize your character, but having dynamic sprites in Flash makes things difficult. I've been considering releasing a standalone (downloadable) game, and if I'm able to, I hope to have customizable characters. Until then, you'll just have to enjoy this game!

I do have a question, while this game won't be getting any more significant updates, I could possibly create a few more maps (the premise would be the same; collect gems). Would you be interested in this? Let me know in the comments.

Thanks again for playing! -InfinityDash


UPDATE 5/1/2011: Thanks for all the comments everyone! Just wanted to let you know that I still plan on working on this, I've just been really busy lately. I've tried to fix most of the bugs that have been pointed out (especially the "get stuck in wall and slowly move upwards" glitch), so when I upload an updated version those problems should be gone.

Also I realize that there is another flash game engine being worked on, and it's a "true" flash engine (whereas this is actually a Multimedia Fusion game running in flash [btw, if you're at all interested in making 2D games, and you don't know about Clickteam's Multimedia Fusion, I highly suggest you look into it! (nested parenthesis ftw)]) but I figure there's no harm in having more than one 2D game engine out there...

Oh yeah, last thing, regarding UNICORN MAGIC. I'm having trouble of thinking of ideas for for this that will work in this type of fast-paced 2D side-scrolling environment . Any suggestions, let me know!

In the future I plan on releasing the engine when it's more or less finished.

(I noticed sometimes this game has pretty bad slowdown here on the DA page, I think's it's due to the ads on the site... if it's moving unbearably slow you can try playing it here instead.)

I would love some more maps and the unicorn magic could make the unicorn levitate, as to the pegasus flying.
