Randy’s Mall Dash

Retro-style Endless Runner Game

Randy's Mall Dash

This year, I wanted to do something different and memorable for our agency Christmas card. The art department had been talking about making a video game and now I finally had the time to make it happen.

Since this would be going out to EVERYBODY, and not just nerds who grew up playing Nintendo, it needed to be simple and approachable. There is only one input (jump), and the level starts out slow and forgiving.

We also wanted to do a persistent high score board, which I built with PHP and a MySQL database. The winner of the best score won an SNES Classic.
