Creating a Javascript/Hype version of Maze Craze with a few minor customizations.

DARRENS MAZE

Using this in a small class I’m teaching this semester when we cover Collision Detection. Used Tiled from mapeditor.org to create the layout. Would love any usability feedback.

Good work @darren_pearson.

For me it’s a little annoying having the sound when you bump into a wall but I’m guessing to stay true to the Atari version that has to be in there :smile:

Maybe a change of (random) maze when you click play again?

Would be helpful for folks if you could share some of your techniques. i.e for the detection, etc. I know the community will appreciate it. Good work though. I got 1100

Thanks! Need to work on "normalizing" audio so some sounds are not too much louder than others.

Great Score! I used [THIS TUTORIAL][1] to learn how to use Tiled and convert the results into Javascript to detect collisions. When I have time. I'd like to put together a tutorial but that won't happen until the end of this semester I'm guessing.
