How I built it

I built this game using TypeScript and Phaser.js. The game was an experiment to see if, what I knew about developing games could be applied to the creation of games for the web with Phaser.js and TypeScript. I believe the end product is an accomplishment, as the game itself runs pretty smoothly on desktop browsers. I need to do some tweaking in order for it to be correctly rendering on a mobile broswer.

Additional Resources/Info

There were assets for the game that I created before the hackathon but all of the code will be written during the time frame of the hackathon.

That would be awesome. I haven't tried it with a controller yet. What are you playing it on? I am hoping to fix it's scaling on mobile devices as some of the screen is cut off.
