Gauntlet

My Role in this Project

This is a first year project where we had to create a game like gauntlet with the goal to learn C++ and game programming basics such as collision detection and handling multiple objects. The game has 2 different enemies, enemy spawners, keys and doors and 2 levels. It is made in a basic framework provided by school.

Summary of my work:

  • Made collision detection and resolution
  • Made a 2D camera with map scrolling
  • Made a maploader that can load maps created in Tiled Map Editor by reading the JSON file
  • Made 4 different character that the player can choose from
  • Made simple enemy behaviour
