Game Design 101: JavaScript Side Scroller

Dive into a platformer where code, a level editor, and problem-solving skills make you the master of all that you see. You'll solve puzzles and challenges related to the game. If your character needs to jump higher to overcome an obstacle, you can code that in! If you need platforms to cross an uncrossable gap, you can add those yourself! By exploring an already working game, you'll be able to make it your own, and as your JavaScript gaming and coding skills increase, you'll see more and more ways to edit everything until it's all your creation. Modding meets coding and platformers in this make-and-break-things adventure.
