Very nice. Has a lot of potential!

Starts very well indeed. My only concern is about the unrealistic gravity (falling/jumping at constant speed). It's not very hard to code a constant acceleration based one (as it is in our old real world), and it gives IMHO a much better feeling.

Yes , i'm not work on gravity and jump ... just work for collision search near the character.
Now i'm work for scrolling , easy to implant.
I'm searching on paper for slope.
And i'm work for the game design... goal ... item ...
Thank for all !

Go to the bottom of the level and then hold DOWN for a fun little crash/bug.

A great start! The falling at a constant speed is probably due to a limitation of the physics engine driving the love2d physics module: all objects have a maximum velocity of about 200 units per second. In order to work around this, you'll need to store separate world and screen coordinates for your objects and use a smaller world size, or use something like CAMERA with your project to scale the scene appropriately.

Love physics engine is not use in the program.
The falling speed is constant because it's not coding ... just +2 used ^^
Scrolling is coming ...
thanks for all !
