Feedback on simple Javascript Game

Hi all,

I tried making a simple javascript game after finishing the Basic Javascript part of the curriculum.

I was wondering if anyone had some advice on how to make it more visually appealing and fun to play.

Thanks :slight_smile:

Nice! I love-hate clickers!

Aside from better graphics, one visual thing I like to see in these games is the click count rising quickly, not in 1 second intervals. So think about how you might refresh the counter on faster intervals when you have more than 1/sec.

I just finished Basic Javascript, too. I’m impressed. I made a couple simple interfaces, including a “rock, paper, scissors” game, but haven’t had a chance to do any graphics. It’s a good way to practice.

The changing background color is a little hard on my eyes.

Hi Jackson,
That was a great suggestion! It turned out to be a fun little puzzle and it added a lot to the game. Here’s the changes I’ve made if your intereseted: https://codepen.io/David_Mat_Fraser/full/PoZgJEe
Thanks again for the push in the right direction!

Hi cherylm,
Thanks for the comment. I agree that making js games is a good way to practice & the rock, paper, scissors game seems like a fun idea. I agree about the changing background color being harsh so I made sure to change that. Here’s the updated version if your interested: https://codepen.io/David_Mat_Fraser/full/PoZgJEe.
Cheers!

Great! That ticker is way more satisfying now!

As a completely unrelated aside - have you seen the mobile game ‘Cell to Singularity’?

It’s the most fully realised clicker I’ve ever seen! I strongly recommend not playing it though - it will ruin your life :laughing:

Have not played it … but it looks cool. Maybe I should make a Cell to Singularity clone using ONLY vanilla js … how hard could it be?

edit: already done https://codepen.io/David_Mat_Fraser/pen/KKzPegW

That would have saved me so much time…
