The Lil’ Red Marble

redmarble-animated


After years working in Flash I’ve finally launched my first HTML5 game. It’s programmed in PuzzleScript and has been a blast to make. In keeping with my summer of mazes I went with a simple interactive maze where you guide a red marble through tunnels to find a golden ring. I designed the graphics using Edge Touch on my iPhone and translated it to PuzzleScript using Plain Text, also on my iPhone. I’m thrilled to be able to create an interactive game while sitting at the playground with my kids, working on a computer I can fit into my pocket.

Play it now!

    This was really cool. Love the simplicity of the art. Was Puzzlescript hard to learn? I’m more on the graphics side and don’t know much programming.

    Also, it’s fun to find a phone app for drawing. I’ll try the one you mentioned. For me, I’ve enjoyed Sketchbook Express (or Pro) and a stylus.

    Keep up the great work,

      Puzzle Script was really easy to learn, especially since there are a bunch of games people have built that you can hack their code. The documentation is good but not great. I’m thinking of making some tutorials once I get deeper into it.

      I’ll look into Sketchbook Express. Thanks.
