I'm quite happy with this game. Not because it is particularly interesting, but because I managed to create exactly what I wanted.
I came into this wanting to make a game about stairs. I also wanted to make the game in pure JS, and with online functionality. I somehow hit all of these goals.
There are two modes: (Controlled by the arrow keys)
- Survival : Press the correct arrow keys to climb the tower. Avoid the lava for as long as possible.
- Online VS: A head on head race. First person to die to lava loses.
Additionally, the game has networking enabled, allowing for the following:
- Server stored high scores.
- Working online matchmaking for the Versus mode.
Messing with node.js/socket.io to get networking working was quite the experience, and I feel I learned quite a bit through making this game.
Anyway, fun times. Can't wait to try everyone else's games.
