animation in adventure games

How is hero animation made in adventure games

(like "Indiana Jones And The Fate Of Atlantis")???

How to hide hero behind objects (e.g. Indy goes beyond a tree), how to make him smaller (Indy "goes away from the screen") and so on...


Thank's for answers!!!

    It's not that hard, but it does take a lot of work. You can draw each frame of the character and then show them sequentially when the character moves.

    To make the character smaller, you can make a few bitmaps of him smaller OR you can use the same bitmap as before but just draw every other pixel.

    You get the idea, right?


    By the way, download my asteroids game and tell me what you think. I haven't worked on it since last winter (when my grades started dropping...).

    Click on the rotating asteroid.
