30 Day Amazon Challenge Top Picks

In 2015 Zenva paired up with Amazon to create the ’30 Day App Challenge’ where Zenva students could create and submit their own Amazon applications. Successful applications would then have their creations available on the Amazon App Store for users to play and score themselves a nifty $15 Amazon Gift Card.

Below are a few examples of work submitted by students at Zenva Academy and showcased their finished work on the Amazon Appstore.

Dodger the Unicorn                                 Similar to it’s predecessor Flappy Bird, Dodger the Unicorn is a fun ‘tap tap’ game. With different levels and modes of difficulty, Dodger is definitely one of those games you can spend the entire afternoon on. Extra kudos for the insanely cute graphics and background music.

90 Seconds                                                       With 90 seconds on the clock (hence the name) the object of the game is to try and correctly answer each question with the corresponding letter. A great way to test how quickly the user can think on the spot. The more words you type, the more points you earn (up to 3 points depending on length and difficulty).But be careful: if you skip a word or leave it empty, then you will lose points,

For aspiring app developers who would otherwise be stuck halfway through a coding tutorial and a cats with cucumbers compilation video (procrastinators are expert multi- taskers), The Amazon 30 Day App Challenge is a perfect example of how strict deadlines and added incentives can be used to give developers that extra bit of motivation to finish a project. 

Of those who participated in the app challenge, many were students of Zenva Academy and had completed courses such as ‘The Complete Mobile Game Development Course’ and ‘HTML 5 Game Developer with Phaser.’

Jeremiah Jenkins, contestant of The Amazon 30 Day App Challenge had this to say:

‘I would absolutely recommend this course to other potential developers!

This course helps us to expand both of those boundaries by exposing students to a wide array of game genres and by teaching us how Phaser (and many game engines like Phaser) can be used to implement those game genres.
