Today was the first day of our project week. This week, we’re all expected to get to GA bright and early and work away all day long on our first major project. Our task is to complete a familiar game with HTML and JS. We had the following games to choose from:
- Tower of Hanoi
- Flash Cards
I decided to go with flash cards, simply because creating a game on its own will be a challenge enough. I’m still struggling to figure out the logic when I start projects, and I’m hoping that will change over time.
Over the weekend I managed to complete most of the project’s functionality, so for the most part I worked on compiling the content for the cards, finding images for the front and back of the cards, and working out some of the styling issues. I kept running into issues with event listeners, since my game involves users guessing the answer to a card in an input, then clicking to view the back of the card, then clicking once more to see the next card. The game includes scoring, a timer, and the option to play again when the game is over.
