Hello! I would like to know from knowledgeable people how to create levels where we see a third-person character in the same way as in games such as Limbo, terraria, this war of mine

instead of telling you what can be done, all million ways, why dont you tell us what you have done so far, what you have thought so far and what it is that you need exactly. What you are asking about is a very open and vast issue

The games you're describing are called "Platformers" or "Platform games". 

 

Most people are going to use a tool like Tiled (https://mapeditor.org) to draw out the scene using tiles (square images).  Then you will need to find a third-party library to process the Tiled map and turn it into Corona display objects and then add your logic.

 

Go here and scroll down to the Sticker Knight Platformer section: https://docs.coronalabs.com/guide/programming/index.html

 

You can download Sticker Knight and see how it's done. That package has a tile engine called PonyTiled that will read the Tiled Map and get your game going.

 

There are a set of videos on our YouTube channel where the PonyTiled author talks about building a platformer with Tiled. This is your best starting point for building a platformer.

 

One gotcha to be aware of. Tiled changed how they use tile sets to move from Internal to External tile sets. Most all of the third-party Corona tile engines expects the tile sets to be opposite.

@dimidrol  It would also help to know your background.  Are you an artist, a programmer, both or neither?  That will influence how you approach any game development challenge.
