Snakes And Ladders

Help Drillo get through 12 levels on a mission to destroy the X-Ray Orb. Collect upgrades for new abilities but try to avoid the enemy side effects.

Use the arrow keys, WASD or ZQSD to move. Further controls are explained in-game.

This six month project was a lot of work, and there were many things I learned along the way, so I am planning on explaining bits out in the weeks to come. If you would like me to do a write-up for a certain aspect of the game, feel free to email me.

List of completed articles:
∙ Level Generation
∙ Side Effects

The complete source code is displayed below, but it is also available on github if you prefer it.
