Everyone loves old school arcade games (if they say they don’t, they’re probably lying). The only real problem with them is that unless you’re Billy Mitchell it’s quite difficult to get away with finding an excuse to play them for as long as you’d like to. Z-Type comes to the rescue. It’s a very addictive space shoot-em-up where you destroy the bad guys by learning to type. That’s a pretty cool way to learn! The game is written using the impact.js game library (costing $99) which takes care of all of the boring stuff like audio and key presses, meaning that you can spend all of your time coding the fun game logic bits.
Before we start, I’d like to pose a question: when was the last time you asked someone to review your code? Reviewing code is possibly the single best technique to improve the overall quality of your solutions, and if you’re not actively taking advantage of it, then you’re missing out on identifying bugs and hearing suggestions that could make your code better. None of us write 100% bug-free code all of the time, so don’t feel there’s a stigma attached to seeking help.
