By now most of you should have heard or played the game Flappy Bird – the simple one-button tapper where you navigate a flying bird, named “Faby” between sets of pipes. Successful navigation earns the player a point, whereas collision with the ground or pipe results in a game over. Take part in this course, which guides you through the process in creating the game in Java using the Greenfoot development environment.
I’ve pencilled in to make 21 lessons, I’ve done 10 which are fully written up on the website so far. Each mini-lesson consists of:
• Introduction to the task
• Explanation of the Greenfoot API / Java 7 API methods to be used
• Video Tutorial
• Game Assets
• Task output
