Self reflection of a year in Globaloria

For 4 years, I've been active in Globaloria. It was difficult at first because I didn't know how it worked, but I got the hang of it after a little while. I have learned many things as the years passed by

Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan

I read a short article in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eb0Rv6UBEIA it's about a farewell to the loved drummer, The Reverend Tholomew Plague. In this article his friend is writing to him and how he'll see him soon when the time is right. In the article M.Shadows (singer from Avenged Sevenfold) descries jimmy as a brother and inspiration the world.

Collect the collectable

My collectable is an apple because the game mainly focuses in healthy eating and safe driving, and although these two topics aren't so similar, they do in fact have a hidden linkage to each other.

Increase the player's score

There was some troubles with the coding for the score at first, the game would crash a little, or once i got to interact with the collectable, the score would go to a 3 digit number. But once I got to fix this small error the score finally bumped up to 1.

Create a score counter

I think that games with score display on them is very fun and cool. I think it's cool because this allows to challenge other people to beat your high score. I think that with high scores you could use that number to buy power ups and what not to make the game more interesting to play.

Create a collectable object

I think that if the collectable in my game (which is an apple) could move around the screen making different moving sequences, something that would make my apple harder to catch.. this would be a little more challenging for the player.

Move the player

I had trouble in making my player move because the coding was supposed to be exact. If there was one tiny thing missing or misspelling, it would take a while to find that error and fix it, but other tha that I got to fix the error and my player moved normally.
