2D platformer engine using LÖVE and Lua forked from:

Boxclip is a 2D platformer engine, with an emphasis on interactive map editing. Built using the LÖVE2D framework.

Maps can be created with the custom built-in map editor. Simply drop and place entities into the world to create a level.

This app depends on LÖVE runtime, make sure you install it first:

I added to this fork:

  • Thumbstick support: Control the player with the thumbstick
  • Replaced some assets
  • Touch controls
  • Added credits menu
  • Added some extra music tracks

Tweaks (necessary to avoid compatibility issues):

  • Shaders disabled (waterfalls are frozen as a result)
  • Webp disabled (the game is as a result ⁓ 8Mb bigger)
  • Console prints disabled
  • Function in charge of hidding sprites "" disabled due to incompabilities (it causes spikes and other sprites to be visible when they should not)
  • Function in charge of formating time disabled (world:formattime(n)) due to issues on Sailfish, as a result, gameplay time rendering is an unreadable mess.
  • Other minor tweaks

Version 0.1.4b-1 adds remote network controls improvements:

  • Added network menu to enable, disable and set up network controls
  • Added network menu to set up the remote server ip, ports and the ip of the virtual gamepad that connects to it.

Critical bug causing the game to crash when starting any level due to remote axis values not being initialized solved.

the game has been submitted to obs for automatic building, have you tried any of the builds there and see if they work? here is the link.

If it still does not work feel free to contact me directly and share some screenshots / error and I will see if there's anything I can do.

Hi, thanks for the feedback, it would be helpful to know which löve builds you installed and your sailfish version. The screenshots are taken on sailfish 3.4 so all I can say is that it works on 3.4 with löve builds from chum repository. I'm not building löve itself so I have no control over incompatibilities with other sailfish version... I hope it helps.
