I wanted to create a simple interactive webpage as a game for project to entertain anyone who wishes to play. In addition, I wanted to bring in the elements from whack-a-mole such as the mole and the hammer to relive the nostalgia from the original whack-a-mole game that most of us are very familiar with.

What it does

A simple game designed to entertain

How I built it

I built the webpage using HTML, CSS, Javascript as well as JQuery which is used to detect mouseclicks and keyboard keystrokes in order to interact with the webpage.

Challenges I ran into

It is my first time trying out web development and I had to learn to use Javascript and JQuery to customise certain behaviours for the webpage.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I'm proud that I managed to publish an functional interactive webpage which I have worked on solo for this hackathon.

What I learned

I have learned a lot from this experience as I got to learn of interesting customisations and behaviours for webpages. In addition, I learnt what makes an enjoyable hackathon: a sufficient supply of food, engaging organisers and loads of fun from playing the fringe events.

What's next for Memory whack-a-mole

There's much improvements and customisations to be done to make it look more appealing for the general users


All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed myself joining this hackathon. Big thanks to the organisers and sponsors for making this event possible for first-time hackers like myself for exposure and the other hackers competing.

Do check out my GitHub for the instructions to the game before trying it out!
