ROB_v4 gamepads and collisions

New version of the open beta!

I’m excited for this one. There are a couple major changes introduced.

1. As I mentioned in the previous post, I changed Marty’s main sprite to a single-frame rectangle that never changes shape or image point. This specifically affects the glitchy movement that could occur when the player is standing directly against a wall.

2. Gamepad support! I tested with Xbox One and PS4 controllers, but any gamepad with a similar button layout should work (provided you’re using Chrome). I haven’t edited the in-game instructions for controls yet, but it’s pretty simple: Left and right with the D-pad (or primary analog stick), and to jump/stomp you can use “A” (Xbox) / “X” (PlayStation). The “Option/Menu/Start” button pauses the game.

I also changed the permalink structure for website posts and pages. I tested to make sure that everything redirects properly, but if you have issues with broken links, please let me know in the comments.
