Trogdor: Endless Burnination v0.1 - Microsoft MakeCode

My first ever game, made on MakeCode Arcade! I learned a lot, had a ton of fun, and wrote more about the process of making this game on my website:

https://dragonmountaindesign.com/2019/08/01/trogdor-endless-burnination-v0-1/

Basic rules:

You are Trogdor, on a quest to Burninate with the press of the “A” button.

Peasants:
+1 point for chowing down (running into).
+0 points for burninating.

Knight:
+2 points for burninating.
-1 heart for getting attacked by one.

Thatched-roof Cottage:
+5 points for burninating.
-1 heart for crashing into one.

Arrow:
-1 heart for getting arrowed (ow, my skin!).
Cannot be burninated.

I love the art in this game! You mentioned in the post on your site that you wanted to know how to make it fire out of Trogdor’s mouth; the easiest way would be to add a change {projectile} y by -10 when you create the projectile, so that it is offset to about where the mouth is:

04

I also used the z index so that the fireball is drawn behind the dragon, so it appears more like it’s coming out of the dragons mouth

Wow, thank you so much for the feedback and advice on how to make improvements to the game! I’ll include this in the code on v1.0!

Thank you again!
