Little Green Soldiers and Tackling "Events"
I doodled this little guy while at lunch today. I'd still like to do a good pulp-science fiction invasion somewhere in the game, but I don't think I've quite nailed the design yet.
Also, tonight I started tinkering with Scirra's Construct 2. At the moment, I'm trying to figure out the switching between player states. This way, I can flop between platforming and flying by the press of a button. Obviously I bit off more than I can chew because I'm getting nothing but a grey screen when I compile the project. I'm pretty much stumped so I sent a request for help to the forums. With any luck, my problem will be so glaring that they'll find it immediately. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that its an easy fix while not being so easy that I look stupid for not seeing it.
Below is how my events are set up.
