GameMaker Studio: Kirby’s Tornado Ability


In the Kirby Games, the Tornado ability severed as a ability for combat and level navigation. When used, the player is temporarily invulnerable and enemies take damage from Kirby’s touch. Holding down the jump button also made Kirby rise into the air. Today presents a project recreating Kirby’s Tornado ability at the most basic level. This project will:

  • Have GUI Elements on the screen
  • Enemies that take damage by jumping on top of them or from using Tornado
  • Have the current health of the enemies show when they take damage
  • Basic platforming with an ability that can be used when touching the ground
