Current TypeScript Projects
Hi, my name is Rick, and I've been working on adding more tutorials and typescript tools to TypeScriptGames.com.
Web Audio API
I'm using SFX Web on several different games now. I'm looking to get the api on github soon.
TypeScript UI Layout Editor
Right now I'm working on an app for creating a UI JSON file. The goal is to create something that let's you set up a UI layout in they way you could in Flash (back when everyone used Flash). It's kind of slow going, I want to have it import a spritesheet created with my spritester tool, and split it into sprites that can be used in the tool to create simple animations and combined objects similar to Flash MovieClips.
More Tutorials around Texture Atlas Creation
Recently I released my new Texture Atlas Generator App, which I call Spritester. At the moment it's very basic. You drag all your image files onto the "Drop Files Here!" button, and it generates a Texture Atlas you can download. When you click the "Download" button it will download both an image file and the .json file to go along with it. I've put together a short video on Youtube comparing it to Texture Packer (a $20 Texture Atlas App). I plan on adding more tutorials around Spritester as well as a general tutorial on 2D bin packing in TypeScript in case anyone wants to understand how it works.
Finishing my TypeScript Asteroids Game
Several of the Tutorials I've been working on have been building towards the creation of an HTML5 Vector Based Asteroid Shooter game. I would like to finish that up and put in some bells and whistles. Right now it's on the low end of my priority list, but I wanted to include it as coming, as it's definitely still on my to do list.
Learn to use TypeScript and the HTML5 canvas to draw images sprites for your games using images.
8 Bit Sound Effects
Learn how to use HTML5 to load a sprite sheet and create animations using the HTML5 canvas element.
I've added a series of fun 8 bit style 2048 puzzle games. Slide the tiles with the arrow keys. Tiles with the same value merge into a value with twice the value.
This is my take on the classic Atari arcade game Asteroids. Point your ship at the asteroids and shoot, but don't run into those giant space rocks.
Spades Card Game
Spades is a classic trick taking card game. Played in pairs, bid the number of tricks you believe you can take after you see your hand. Spades is always trump.
This is my version of the classic Taito arcade game Space Invaders. It has more of an 8 bit feel than the original Space Invaders, which was black and white.
Gaps Solitaire is my personal favorite solitaire card game. Your goal is to put all the cards in order by suit in four rows by moving cards into the gaps.
