Below we catch up with YellowSidd Creator Daniel Danielecki to talk about his Mario style platformer game, YellowSidd.
What tools and technologies did you use to create YellowSidd?
I used HTML 5 and the Quintus framework, although right now I would recommend to everyone wanting to begin the journey of HTML 5 game development to start with Phaser.
What Zenva courses have you taken and how have they helped you?
Up until now only Intro to HTML 5 Game Development – it taught me the basics of mobile and web game development. I also worked through The Ultimate Game Development Course with Construct 2 but haven’t been able to fully use Construct 2 yet.
What was your background before coming to Zenva?
What was the deciding factor to enroll in Zenva courses?
I was fascinated by how programming in web technologies could work in mobile applications like a native. I was especially interested about performance of this in game apps.
How long did it take you to make YellowSidd?
Maybe 2-3 months. Unfortunately I couldn’t devote 100% of my attention to this project.
What advice would you give to some one wanting to make a simple game?
Don’t use Quintus, go with Phaser, it’ll be much better for you! Visit the html5gamedevs.com forum, which is great and there you can look for trends in HTML 5 game development. Also don’t forget to choose Zenva during your first steps ;-)
What do you plan to do next?
Finish my game based on Phaser, I have the physics, scenes etc., but I want to make it completely 100% Phaser. I need only to implement share/invite friends on Facebook, In-app purchase and ads.
What advice would you give to other students that are taking Zenva courses?
I have only worked through two tutorials on GameDev Academy and 1 Zenva course, so I do not have much experience. For me Zenva’s content looks really great. I’m fascinated with game courses, and game engines, like Meteor and Babylon. I didn’t find any better place to learn, then Zenva. Stop wasting your time looking other content and start learning here now. ;-)
