Geometry Dash developer RobTop Games said the 2.2 platformer mode will "start to really shine" in updates 2.3 and 2.4. However, he still plans to have it available in 2.2.
RobTop has since chosen to add sound effects in Geometry Dash 2.2 instead of waiting for 2.3 or 2.4. You can see the new sound effect system in the third and final Geometry Dash 2.2 sneak peek.
Specifically, RobTop said this about the Geometry Dash 2.2 platformer mode:
I think platformer mode will start to really shine in 2.3/2.4
RobTop also said that he wants to add a sound effect trigger to platformer mode to make it feel complete, specifically in 2.3:
2.3 should have sound triggers yes
RobTop insists that the Geometry Dash 2.2 platformer mode needs sound effects:
Sound effects are needed to make platformer good but one step at a time
What do you think? Does Geometry Dash 2.2 platformer mode really need sound effects? If so, is 2.3 a reasonable update for it?
RobTop said all of this in the Geometry Dash Discord server, like he does with other Geometry Dash 2.2 news.
