Hi. Asset looks cool but is it easy to modify character mesh, enemies like bosses mesh

Heys, I’m glad you like it!
Yep it’s fairly easy to do so. The entire template is Paper2D based.
Expect a few tutorials shortly.


-Added character climbing ability
-Added ladder blueprint
-Added lava blueprint with damage over time
-Added slowdown function (used for when in lava)
-Added analog stick support for controllers
-Added the new blueprints to the example maps

-Added wall jump (using special wall blueprint)
-Added barrel that shoots the player out (kinda like in Donkey Kong on SNES)
-Added spikes that go into the ground and back up (old ones that stay in place are still there)
-Added project image (tutorial how to change it)
-Added the new blueprints to the example maps

I was wondering if I could make it so the character changes the pose (flipbook) depending on if they are shooting
