Duckshoot Game

As part of my college course at Suffolk New College, for the computer games unit we did, I  needed to practice creating games and getting used to the interface of Adobe Professional CS4 and gain knowledge of the ActionScript 3.0 programming language. So to help me my tutor gave me and the rest of the class sample code that could create complete games, which we could then add our own enhancements to if we wished to do so.

The third game I created was a game called Duckshoot. It is a single player game where the mouse is used to aim the cross hairs to shoot as many ducks as possible in the 60 seconds time limit. I made some enhancements to the game from the original code. I added in-game messages and a ‘fire’ effect when you shoot the ducks.

Improvements – May 2012

I have improved the accuracy when shooting the ducks, by shortening the ‘shooting flame animation’ when the mouse is clicked. This should allow more ducks to be shot in succession.

To play the game, click on the game using the mouse, so that the game becomes active, and then you will be able to control the the cross hairs and aim it at the ducks to shoot them.

Please click here to play the game!

Note: I do not own the sound effects used in this game.
