Drop platforms

Other (objects, etc.) entity

Platforms that support characters on them, but can be passed through when wanted (dropping down or jumping up through them).


Alternate names: Pass-through platforms
Name variations: drop-through platforms

The first video game about Drop platforms was released in 1984.

Cellar Door Games, Arcen Games and DrinkBox Studios has published most of these games

Commonly when moving from below these they do nothing to inhibit motion, from above they work like regular floor/platforms but allow dropping down through them (usually by pressing down, crouch, or similar control and jump to signal "jump down").

In games where objects can be moved about, solid objects are usually supported while semi-solid (e.g. liquids) are not.
