This week I have made an effort to return to some of my programming roots by completing an online course and building the associated project. In this case it was a simple tennis game project.
Note that this game doesn’t work on mobile or tablet currently as it uses the mouse for control 🙂
As you can see it is a very simple clone of the classic arcade game.
It’s written as a single page application and all the code is in a single file.
The course was quite basic with nice step by step instructions all the way through. It was also fairly short and could easily be completed within a day if you wanted.
I enjoyed the course and found it to be a nice reintroduction to simple web programming.
I’m planning to complete and upload many more web based projects so stay tuned!
In fact I may start the followup course to this one called How to Program Games: Tile Classics in JS for HTML5 Canvas. This one is a paid course but at only $30 its very reasonable. Keep watching to see my progress!
You can play a working version of the game here and view the source code from the page itself.
