A downloadable game for Windows

XNAG4 (formerly known simply as "Game 4") is a prototype, that I built in order to learn how to build a 2D platformer from the ground up and learn some more about 2D movement and collision detection, saving / loading levels, simple AI and so on. It's more of a playground, than an actual game.

(A lot of homebuilt platformers used tiles at the time, in order to simplify collision, but I was more interested in the challenge and implemented arbitrary sizes for platforms and so on. No tiles here! :) )

Doors start working as soon as you have collected all the fruit in a level. Have fun with all the moving platforms, angled slopes and roaming enemies. And don't forget to spawn a few mice on the way. ;)
