D)HTML Structure - top

This game have the canvas tag in the body. The ready event into the body calls the main function of the game: CMain().
The head section declares all the javascript functions of the game. The whole project uses a typical object-oriented approach.
In the init function there are 8 mapped events that can be useful eventually for stats

  • Game option: You can easily customize game setting when creating a new instance of the game in index.html file
  • 					var oMain = new CMain({
    												player_max_speed: 21,      //PLAYER MAXIMUM SPEED
                                                    player_min_speed: 4,       //PLAYER MINIMUM SPEED
                                                    player_energy: 100,        //PLAYER ENERGY
                                                    player_resistence_step: 2, //THIS AMOUNT IS SUBTRACTED BY PLAYER ENERGY EVERY UPDATE 
                                                    player_max_speed_adder: 1, //AMOUNT TO ADD WHEN USER BUY SPEED UPGRADE
                                                    player_energy_adder: 5     //AMOUNT TO ADD WHEN USER BUY ENERGY UPGRADE

    E) CSS Files and Structure - top

    The game use two CSS files. The first one is a generic reset file. Many browser interpret the default behavior of html elements differently. By using a general reset CSS file, we can work round this. Keep in mind, that these values might be overridden somewhere else in the file.

    The second file contains all of the specific stylings for the canvas and some hack to be fully compatible with all most popular mobile devices

    Resuming, the complete game flow is the following:

    1. The index.html file calls the CMain.js file after ready event is called
    2. The main class calls CPreloader.js to init preloader text and start sprite loading
    3. When all sprites contained in "/sprites" and "/sounds" folder are loaded, the main class removes the preloader and calls the CMenu.js file that shows the main menu
    4. If the user clicks the Play button in main menu, the CSelectTeam.js class is called. Once runner is selected, the "LevelMenu.js" class is shown.
    5. When user choose a Track, the game starts.
    6. If the user clicks on the exit button in the up-right corner, the game returns to the menu screen.
