Platformer: Wall Jumping


In this article, we will talk about how to give your player the ability to wall jump. I have a previous article that covers the setup of getting this mechanic ready, so makes sure you read that before you read this.


It is endless fun being able to bounce back-and-forth off of walls. This mechanic also allows you to add more interesting level designs. For this version of the wall jump, we disable the ability to move in mid air, which is correct physics. But, all the platformers I grew up on allowed you to move once in the air, so I will want to revisit this and add that feature. Until next time…Cheers!
