Since this is a mini with loose rules, I’ve decided to pretty much ignore them altogether! The only limitation it’s following is “one button only” (the mouse), but it follows my own theme of “making something totally boring into an interesting game.” I’m also spreading the work out over this week, but finishing in less than 48 hours of work time.
My game is about writing a final report on a subject in just a few minutes. It’s my first action/arcade game for a while- the gameplay involves catching falling letters to bring them to the paper. If you miss letters, the words on the report will be misspelled. If the player collects enough letters and powerups while avoiding typos, they’ll get a good grade!
Each report has a topic, which determines the environment and the way the letters appear and move.
Here’s a screenshot of the report “The Internet”:
