I require a developer to build a simple flash based side-scrolling platform game using the assets, sfx/music and instructions given. Key Points: - It is a client side, single player Adobe Flash game. - There is only one control required, a click, drag and release mechanic. - All Artwork is supplied including the GUI and specific instructions on how the game is laid out. - The top 10 highscores need to be displayed either inside the flash game or in a HTML table that can be placed on a webpage along with the flash game. If a player earns a top 10 highscore they must be able to enter their name and email but only the name and score is displayed. Their email address will remain private for me only in a separate highscore table. As a Freelancer applying for this job: - You must have excellent English skills. I will not hire anyone with broken English, it always leads to miscommunication and faults with my project. - A good reputation is required. - I am also a developer just not in Flash so I will not be choosing bids with high costs involved that aren't justified. - I have a very specific goal and target, as the developer, you will not deviate from my instructions at all and will ask if you are unsure to avoid conflict and unwanted changes. - YOU MUST HAVE YOUR OWN HOSTING. This job requires a Database, you will not be given access to our hosting. You agree to develop the game and database on your own hosting then transfer all files over upon completion with instructions on how to install on our own hosting account. Follow the instructions and this will be a very quick and easy project for an experienced flash developer since all assets are provided. If you are successfully awarded the contract you may be asked to sign our NDA.

We need to have new features created, developed for our existing surfing game. We have the full code for the exiting game along with assets: 1. adjust the code to be more efficient as well as the following: 2.The surfer's speed will constantly increases up to a maximum as the game is played. - A power-up that increases the speed to the maximum instantly - When the surfer collides with a shark, three things happen: a The surfer's speed is reset to it's default value b. The screen shakes c . A funny audio clip: "Ouch!" 3. The tube's turns are sharper and curves bigger 4.The coins, obstacles and power-ups spawn across the whole tube's surface, no only on the bottom 5.The surfer is easier to control - right now it's a bit too hard to come out of a sharp turn, which doesn't really feel good 6.The camera rotates with the surfer - so the surfer is always on the bottom. Right now the control feels un-intuitive and a bit disorienting, when the surfer is upside down 7.The camera doesn't clip through the tube's surface 8. An infinite game mode - no time limit - this is an option thru the menu / control panel UI. 9. A race game mode - time limit, but there are pickups that extend it, adding X number of seconds - this is also an option selected in a menu / control panel. The final project must be able to be ported to ANDROID or IOS APPLE - meaning that the code that is developed must be compact enough to run easily on those two platforms without crashing.

Need some code to allow me make a game similar to Super Mario/Kid Icarus, where character must navigate through all kinds of *moving bridges without falling. I don't want Mario level 1, need creative, progressing set of moving bridges and obstacles. I prefer Mario 2 or 3 style. Not falling is the main objective, there aren't much enemies (but I don't mind if there are). I am able to help with some of the level design, and visual content, but you will need to help me with the final stages of submission. The code cannot have any huge "gaps" or completion issues inherent in the design. I am open to any creative add-in of any kind. KEY FEATURES I NEED: 1) After level is complete, there is an "angry birds" style animation where character jumps from 1 planet to the next planet (level). Similar to Star Wars angry birds. 2) The moving and dropping bridges and moving obstacles are the main challenge of the game. PLEASE include screen shots of something that will make me understand that you are able to deliver this code. My budget for the initial code is limited, but if you really impress me, I'll do what it takes to go beyond $300 CND. Before I pay for the code, I must know it works properly.

Hi, I would like to develop a game for both Android and Apple markets. It is a simple scrolling arcade bouncing ball game, needing gravity and touch specific directional physics response, sound effects and graphics development. I have some samples of the game play as far as the physics, sounds and concept graphics to get started... game play stays the same with scrolling backwards and forwards while changing backgrounds and obstacles, boosts etc. I need it done within the next 2 months ready and launched in google play and apple itunes store. I do not have my own SDK accounts in either platforms but will have by launch time. Give me your best quote. Open to discussion. Thanks John
