I wanted to celebrate the return of Crew Dragon Demo 2 and in the same time improve my Vanilla-JS skills so I started to create a game which a astronaut will need to travel around the moon and gather samples for scientific research.
What it does
It is a simple game where the player (blue dot) explores the surface of the moon to search for rocky materials and gather them back for research.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
It is hard for me to code because I am not a software engineering student or engineer (I'm a product designer). So learning the logic and computational thinking used up a lot of my time. Unfortunately, I am not able to create the best experience for the game because I lack some of the logic inside the code.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Still, I am able to build a decent enough UI and in the same functional game where player can go around and interact with items on the moon.
What I learned
What's next for Explore the Moon
- Better graphics of course! I wanted to create the 8 bit effect but I don't know how to on the web.
- More Space Quest on the moon
- Maybe even Mars!
