A Worldwide Battle of Cards
My grandparents and I used to play a card game every day when I was a child. They would always beat me, but I became better at the game as I got older. After they passed, I would play the game with my friends and we would have a good time. Now that I’m older, I can’t always play the game in person with my friends because we’re not all in the same location. I came up with the idea of making a video game based on the card game, and Massive Infinity helped me create a website for that game.
The game can run in any web browser and is pretty simple. The game has number cards and special cards that affect the turns people can take in the game, and how many cards they can draw in a turn. The point of the game is to get rid of all the cards in a hand. Translating this into a video game meant that I mainly had to make sure that players could connect to each other over their Internet connection, while minimizing any delay that could possibly happen between players. The game isn’t very fast paced, lag isn’t as big a factor as with other games.
Users can play the game anonymously, or they can create user names and have their win and loss records saved for other people to see. There is a leader board that constantly gets updated with the highest scores and records. Even though I came up with the idea of making the game, I’m not at the top of the leader board. There are some really good players who come from other countries. I thought my skills were a force to be reckoned with, but I need to improve my abilities after seeing these other players in action.
