The issue my project addresses is that smoking a very harmful to people as well as the environment. Many people die from nicotine products and are at risk if they start smoking at a young age. I created this game to teach people that the smoking products have nicotine, which is a very dangerous chemical. I came up with my idea by thinking about what was very harmful to the environment and create a game out of it. Smoking was a huge problem since I have seen other kids at school (before schools closed) vaping in school bathrooms. It has evolved by finding ways to code some important aspects into the game. This game was remixed as I had to change many different sprites and instead of a countdown, I inputted information about the dangers of smoking. My project works by forming the code that is relevant to the rules of the game. It also helps people understand that smoking is a real threat to society as it can also kill the non-smokers when they are near people smoking because they can breathe in the chemical.
Hey Lidia, Thanks for putting out your game to Emoti-con! I found your story about vaping in the bathroom eye opening. I also enjoyed playing your game. It was both challenging but not too frustrating. I played it so much that I think I got past the point where obstacles appeared! One thing I would like to see in the next iteration of the game is for the obstacles to continue appearing until the player dies - something like a while block. I appreciate how you used a base game, and modified it enough to create quite a different experience. If you are into this sort of thing I'd recommend looking into the Touhou project as inspiration for future obstacle dodging games. -Charlie
