Bold Stepper [boʊld ˈstɛpər]:

  1. Scroll shooter game about space
  2. My first relatively big coding project

Disclaimer: the code is completely awful, but it will never be improved. It's interesting for me to keep code frozen, so I can track my progress.

full description is coming soon

Errors made

  • Lack of software design skills made me to rewrite the whole game four times.

  • I didn't ever knew how to use Git, and some code and recources were lost forever.

  • I was familiar with C and tried to move that imperative experience to declarative ActionScript field.
    The imperative code I've been writing was awful.

Good parts

  • It looks awesome.
    High quality code may be your number one priority in real world application, but when it comes to indie games, how the game feels is the king. Games are pieces of art, aren't them?

  • I've learned a lot.
    This game and errors I made allowed me to understand the importance of software design over raw, dumb coding. That was probably the most important experience of my life then.
