Heavily inspired by a new NES game “Micro Mages”, my latest project is built entirely in blocks.
I’ve had a fun time with this project. I want to thank the MakeCode Arcade folks who do the livestreams because I’ve been able to learn a bunch of good stuff from watching your videos. (I owe my charging projectiles and boss battle to your recent streams!)
The game runs poorly on my Pybadge and I wouldn’t recommend digging around in the code as its size causes a fair bit of lag. I would have liked to make this a fuller game with multiple boss fights but the editor’s speed has really slowed due to the amount of code. I can’t wait for future updates to help with this (a stand-alone application would be amazing!).
If you’re interested in learning how I made my first game Bobo the Monkey, I have a couple of guidebooks to walk you through the process. Educators feel free to share these with your students. My plan is to record a video tutorial in the future for my own students. I’ll link that here when it’s done.
