I'm glad to announce the release of : the best 2D + 2.5D platformer solution on the Asset Store The Corgi Engine is a Unity 2D + 2.5D Platformer Kit. It's a very fast, single or local multiplayer non-physics based engine, packed with features, described below. It's mobile friendly, works well with other assets, and is basically everything you need to start creating your own 2D game right now. Check out its website for a full list of features, demos, and more! List of features : PLAYER MOVEMENT The character controller is easy to control and tweak via the inspector. For those of you wondering, the Player/platforms collision detection is made using raycasts, it's not a physics based engine, although you can mix some physics with it, as you can see in the demo (the crates for example). walk left or right walk on slopes orient your character depending on the slope angle dangle at the edge of platforms compatible with all kinds of 2D colliders (box, circles, polygons, etc...) run look up crouch and crawl jump (proportional to the button press time or not, with fall and ascent speed multipliers) customizable jump time windows after a fall double jump (or any number of jumps you want) wall jump wall slide jump down from platforms horizontal dash vertical dash which smashes the ground and shakes the camera jetpack (along with particle effects) climb ladders (regular or bidirectional ones) shoot weapons melee attacks grab ropes PLAYER ANIMATIONS For each of the player's feature, you'll find a dedicated animation. The Corgi Engine uses Mecanim's powerful state machine and blend trees so you can easily replace our little corgi with your own character and animate it. The asset includes spritesheets animations, animated meshes and Spine powered animations. And of course the engine can work with any animation mode you prefer. MULTIPLAYER Since v3.0, the Corgi Engine supports local multiplayer. Create coop or versus games super easily!

GRAVITY Since v4.2, the Corgi Engine allows you to set a specific gravity direction, per character. Unique to the Corgi Engine, this feature opens a whole world of possibilities. Whether it's constant altered gravity, or only in specific zones, or around certain points, the choice is yours. And it's not just "reversed gravity", it's free, 360°, and entirely up to you. Most features of the engine will keep working in altered gravity, from weapons to jumpers, so you can now turn your world around however you want.
