My team and I created a game called Cigarette Cleaners. It is a standard 3 lane running game in which you collect cigarettes off the street. My team chose this topic because we all realized that the world was dying mainly due to pollution and less concerns in littering even though there are laws against them. Furthermore, the most dangerous form of pollution comes in cigarettes because of their chemical air pollution and its abilities to start fire. This could really impact society because it allows people that never knew about this situation, to realize that the world needs cleaning and they can help contribute to it. Additionally, this could also help younger generations learn about how cigarettes contribute to destroying the Earth.
The way you play this game is by using the arrow keys on the keyboard. The up arrow let’s you jump, the down arrow let’s you duck, and the left and right arrows let you switch lanes. We chose these controls because we thought it would be simple and easy to understand. The platform used to make this game is called Scratch. We used this platform because its coding blocks are easy to understand yet it has advanced coding blocks that can make excellent games.
We have uploaded some of our graphics that we designed for our game and have included a presentation that includes information on how to play the game.
You guys did a marvelous job at putting all the details together for the game. It is very addictive and I ended up playing it again the next day :) so congrats on keeping the players engaged. I would love to see you challenge the players [ like me :) ] even further! So maybe see how you can divide the game further into phases and each phase can have a slightly different visual theme .. different background and music maybe? This is a wonderful game, and I absolutely loved playing it.
What a fun way to encourage kids to think about cleaning up litter, and, at the same time, serve as an anti-smoking message. If you want to continue this game and turn it into a series, maybe you can create a version that takes place on the beach or the oceans, another place where tons of litter ends up.
Wow! This is so well executed! I love the style of the animation and characters and that drawing used for the background of the home screen was AWESOME. Sound effects were perfect as well and overall graphics used for information design were great. I played it several times and plan to come back again. Great work!
I LOVED this game. I think you did an amazing job with the cars - it adds to the realism when they get larger the closer they get to you, and then get huge before they go offscreen, like they are really close to you. That is excellent attention to detail and I think makes the game even better. The game was eassy to understand and play, and the teaching at the beginning taught me a lot of things that I didn't know. Great work!
I love playing this game! (I scored a 399) I really like that the cars and busses grow as they get closer, it adds to the fear that we should all have about global warming caused by cigarettes and garbage!
i liked how simple and easy it was to learn how to play. some suggestions might be next time maybe try to make the roads a different color and add a sky so users know where they are jumping
I love your design! The sprites are great.
