Greedy Doggy Game

October 27th, 2008

I spent a chunk of the weekend programming this simply doggy game. Eat all the bones, but don’t eat any chocolate. It’s bad for dogs. All you have to do is use your keyboard arrows to move the little dog around.

Let’s look into the mind of Erik for a second. This started as simply a “walk the dog around” using Flash thing. You push the arrows, the dog walks in the right direction but won’t leave the screen. Then Erik thinks the dog should eat something and the bones are added. Then Erik thinks that the bones should be counted and a notification that all bones are gone should come up. Then Erik thinks that there should be something to avoid and adds the chocolate. Then Erik thinks that there should be sound effects. Then Erik wants to make sure that you can play again easily. And here is the result. A simple starting point ending in a more complex (if still simple in the grand scheme of things) game.
