rat king race for survival: a scratch game


during our scratch module, i created a game called rat king race for survival which i based off the pixeljam game rat maze 2. in my game, you control the mouse as he quests to eat snacks and avoid the cat who also likes snacks … because i like 8 bit games, pixel art, and the graphics in rat maze 2, i wanted to make a game that was like it, but featured an element of danger – the cat. i made the pixel art using gimp. i relied heavily on sensing scripts to control when the mouse encountered snacks or the cat. my greatest challenges were figuring out how to streamline my scripts and troubleshooting when the scripts didn’t perform the way i intended.
