So, well... I have been part of this community for quite a while and have always admired the talented developers that showcase their work on this site. I however had nothing to showcase, which is quite disappointing because the question that needs to be asked, how could you be a games developer if you never developed  held in my mind for many many years.

In September i had the first opportunity to actually put a Degree to use and a realization that there is no excuse to not make a game, since i started working as an Intern games developer, how bout that eh!!

So my job was simple, the company i have been working for is not a programming house, games dev house and has limited understanding of technology (specifically programming), i was asked to make a game for them, for FaceBook.

So in spite of my underlying fears of rejection i decided their was no community better to showcase my work and no community better to scrutinize the game, its code and its graphics than this.

A few notes, the game is done in HTML 5 and JavaScript, while not my language of preference, it was needed to make a game for FaceBook. I only started learning JavaScript when i started my internship. So i hope this community will offer feedback, my main hope here is that from now on i can only become better at programming.

Actually there is one additional note i'd like to make:
When i was doing my Degree, i struggled with my projects, specifically programming, i was convinced programming was never going to be a job for me, one day a lecturer (who knew i was struggling) asked me what i expected to do after i got my Degree, i outright said "Not programming anyways", the past 3 months have been an eye opener for me whilst i am still no where near where i would like to be in programming, i think i am becoming better.

and yes i understand that JavaScript is NOT Java. This was one lesson i learned very quickly at the start of my internship and while i am aware that this is a game development site dedicated to Java, i did feel that this group would know whats fun and what is not, if needed i will delete/edit this thread.

Well there's a first time for something. And as for that, i think your first result is above average.

No reason to feel insecure. Keep trying. Everyone here started with some basic stuff. People who lurk around making game after game until they think they are presentable enough aren't doing it right. Feedback leads to ideas and more importantly, motivation.

PS: Don't mind me, I was listening to TENMON - One more time, One more chance PIANO ver. while reading your post. It almost made me cry.

It is a little rough around the edges, but by no means is it not a fun game. For a gaming project, it is actually above average as you spent a good amount of time on polished graphics, and the controls are easy enough to get used to.

Even though this is a java gaming website, I do have some respect for those who went to HTML5+JS. Clearly, JavaScript is pushing in the direction Java should have already held years ago. JavaScript has now evolved into a much more capable language than it was 5 years ago. (Whether we Java developers want to hear it or not.) I think one of the best things that JS has going for it is that, with a little bit of effort, any language can take advantage of its features.

Anyway, keep it up and I hope to see more projects in the future from you.
