Platform Diver


screen

So I put together a new game, I’ve titled it  ‘Platform diver‘. There’s six levels but the levels are created by a fairly simple json file system so if people enjoy it I may make more.

It has some fairly new javascript/html in it so you’ll need a recent browser like firefox or chrome and while it resizes all right on tablets it’s not playable on my phone and it’s much easier to play with a proper keyboard. Hope you enjoy- here’s how to play:

Use the arrow key to move Nemo. The space bar to jump. Help him reach his working depth for each level (listed on the left side of the screen) and then climb back to the boat to complete that level.

You can pick up tools (wrench) to score points and look for power-ups that heal Nemo if he has been hurt.

You’ll need to avoid the sealife as it can hurt Nemo and cause him to plummet to the depths. If he goes below the assigned working depth you’ll start to lose points so hurry back up.

Decompression

If Nemo spends too long at depth you’ll need to stop for decompression at 60 feet before returning to the surface.

-Watch for alerts on your dive monitor(left side of screen) and the big decompression bar that appears when you reach 60 feet, if decompression is required.

If Nemo goes up before he is decompressed, he may suffer injury. So be careful!

In case you were wondering how I went about creating my poker game, I’ve written a complete tutorial

on another simple card game, blackjack

You can read through it here

and there’s a zip file to download that contains the files used and a small run-able example.

Any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to let me know and If you make something cool be sure and let me know.

What’s the Deal?


As mentioned , I’ve been playing around with programing this summer and completed one project, still got a couple of others I’m working on. Anyway, the one I finished is a simple card game I wrote in C# using visual studio for windows pc’s. Requires .net 4.0. I’ve tested it on windows 7, 8.1 and 10 and seems to work fine let me know if you enjoy it or run into any problems running it.

Since this is my first windows program any feedback is appreciated and I expect there will be some problems, but hopefully nothing major.

The cards are all custom, original designs I created.

To draw or not to draw, another silly question?

Last semester at Bakersfield College I was told a class in the arts was necessary before transferring to Cal State. I happily enrolled in Drawing 101 and enjoyed it immensely. The teacher chose to have us work almost exclusively with charcoal, a medium I had not previously used. I found the shades, tonal range and ease of use to be pretty good.
