Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Snow Time Like the Present

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Well, I think it's done. The final code for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs has been posted and should be ready for (hopefully) bug-free play-through. I admit freely that I'm posting this at 4 in the morning after being up all night so I'm a little punchy. I can only hope I wasn't just dreaming that all the bugs are fixed ;)

Go give it a play and see what you think. Fair Warning: it is every bit the children's game it looks like and you may not make it all the way through. You do get points for trying though.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is nearing completion. I finally got off my duff and fixed the problems I was having with the upper fork in the road and now things seem to be running smoothly. I just need to iron out any final bugs I might find and spruce up anywhere I feel it needs to be spruced. If you play a game now, you should be able to get all the way to the end without a hiccup.

Hi Ho! Hi Ho! It's off to work I go...

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Work on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is almost complete. I have to finishing allowing for the fact that there are two paths to the Finish line and then just put on the final touches. I haven't decided if I want to add more sound effects (or sound bites from the movie), but at this point I think sounds for the markers moving and the spinner spinning are enough. Any other noises would likely just get annoying after a while. The Happy Days game originally had significantly more sounds, many from the show, but when play-testing I found them to be far more distracting than fun. I suspect additional sounds would just feel the same on Snow White. Sometimes simpler is better.


Mary Poppins Carousel

I got 'em today! They're in pretty good shape, though the board for Snow White is warped which may make it a bit of a challenge to scan.
Looking forward to starting work on Mary Poppins after I've completed Happy Days. I suspect the only part that will give me any trouble will be the final carousel spinner. Gonna have to figure the degrees closely on that one.

Mary Poppins Carousel and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Games

Mary Poppins Carousel

Just won these on eBay in a single sale. Both are extremely simplistic children's games, but that should make them relatively easy and fast to code.

I'm really looking forward to coding the Mary Poppins game. Even though it won't be anywhere near as challenging as the three games I've coded so far, I used to love this game when I was a kid. I never owned it but I remember it being available to play at school during recess. Just seeing the playing pieces and board bring back certain excited feelings in me. I don't really remember playing it, it's more an emotional response to the images. Can't wait to get it, should be here in a week or less.

I never played the Snow White game. Never even knew of it's existence until I started this website.
