The aim of this project is to create an HTML5/JS remake of the original Achtung, die Kurve! from 1995.
The game will automatically scale itself up as much as possible; fullscreen is recommended for the best experience.
To install the necessary software, first install Node and then run
in the root directory of this repo. This will install all the Node packages you need.
To build, run
npm run build
in the root of this repo.
To run a development server:
npm run watch
The difference is that
build will write compiled JS files to disk, and you can see your changes simply by opening
watch, on the other hand, does not write to disk, and you must visit
localhost:8080 in your browser to see your changes. The advantage is that everything (both JS and CSS) is recompiled automatically when a file is modified.
src/js/; SASS in
js/ (in the root) contains compiled JS.
The main JS file is
Main.js. It is responsible for creating a
Game and supplying a config, a
Renderer and a
GUIController to it. It also adds
Players to the
Game and forwards key events to it.
Game.js controls the game logic. It knows which
Players are in the game and handles their interaction with eachother and the playing field, and it controls progress throughout the individual rounds. The
Game constructor must be passed a config object, a
Renderer, and a
Player.js describes a single player. It knows whether it is alive, where it is, where and how fast it is going, its score, and what
Game it is attached to.
Renderer.js does all the drawing on the actual playing field.
Game.js does not draw anything; it just calls upon its
Renderer to do that.
GUIController.js controls the scoreboard and additional GUI features, such as hiding the lobby and showing the results when the game ends. When a player's score is changed, the
Game will tell its
GUIController to update the scoreboard entry of that player.
src/js/lib/ contains general libraries and help functions.
dev/ may only contain development tools that are not needed at runtime, such as test suites or code generators.
