In Challenge of the Month – April 2014, we’ve got 5 vertical scrolling games as game challenge entries.
The challenge was as follows.
- Write a vertical scrolling game with obstacles that appear from above and move down. The player must dodge the obstacles by using arrow keys, probably just left and right.
As the result, this challenge was very successful because it’s not so difficult and the resolution programs’ sizes are compact (from 57 to 369 source lines). I recommend you to create such vertical
scrolling game to learn programming.
By the way, the challenge of this month gives us the platform game challenge. Let’s have fun with this kind of short game programming!
And thank you litdev and programmers for your attractive challenges and resolutions every month.
