My JavaScript Port of Dangerous Dave

Post by TheBigV »

This is something I've had complete for some time now and didn't release until today: A full browser-based recreation of Dangerous Dave!

Wow this is very close to the original! Really nice! I think the pick-up items in the original have a little bigger pick-up area. For example, in the third level, where you fall near the exit to pick-up jetpack, you pick-up both items in the original, whereas you fall and pick-up only one item here.

I think I chose to to implement pickup collision in a different way from the original to avoid a bug in the original where picking up items at the very top of the map was unreliable.

This is really cool! Whenever a JavaScript port of a game is made, it makes me happy. I never played the original game a whole lot, but from what I remember, it feels very similar! Awesome work!
