Developing a fun, interactive and simplistic flying game on the web to kill some time.

Plane Game is a simple browser-based game where a user can use the WASD arrowkeys to fly around, avoiding collisions to gain points. There are multiple plane types to choose from, each of them offering different flying speeds.

The project

This project originated as a challenge I got from a school assignment, where we had to show some form of user input to influence this project. I thought it would be a fun idea to make some form of a game, as I had never made a game before. As user input I used WASD keys as it was the most logical option to me, which was later confirmed by some user tests.

Development

I started off creating the user interface with a subtle background and basic functionality like being able to control a plane with the WASD keys. Later on, I was able to add other planes with different speed limits. Once i had the player controlled planes down, I was able to add a collision system by adding other planes coming from the opposite directions, and comparing the coordinates of these planes to see if they had collided with the player's plane. Points were simply calculated by a timer, where u would also lose points for every collision. Lastly I added some standard background music for extra immersion.
