GameMaker Puzzle Platformer
A highlight of my experience at college was creating a group game in our 2nd year. We made a 2D side scrolling platformer using GameMaker, both a visual programming language as well as featuring a coding language you could write. Though the code was not taught in the module I began to learn the language to create a more customization game. I thoroughly enjoyed creating the content for the game and this was my first attempt at creating a tangible product to showcase.
The design of the game shows how new I was to coding but I managed to have character movement animation which I was proud of. The nature of working in GameMaker also meant that I was beginning to think about coding in an object oriented way, as the game consists of objects that interact with each other.
