I use the current iOS development environment including Xcode 10, iOS 12 and Swift 4.0.

Star Wars Game

  • Star Wars
  • Skills : HTML, CSS, JS

Star Wars is a battle game. The user first chooses the character they wish to be by clicking on the character's picture. The player will fight as that player for the whole game. The player then fights each of the remaining characters (the enemies) one at a time. He chooses the enemy to fight next by clicking their picture. The character that the player is figthing against is in the defender_ area of the page. Once the match is started, you click the attack button. Whenever you click attack, it causes damage to the enemy by decreasing their HP - health points. An enemies HP is displayed beloew their image. As soon as you hit attack, the enemy attacks back. Each time the enemy attacks you, you lose some of your HP. You points are shown beneath your character's picture. You continue to hit attack until their HP goes to zero or below - or your HP goes to zero or below. If their HP goes to zero or below, you win. That enemy is removed from defender area and you pick the next enemuy to fight and do the same thing until you or all opponents are defeated.

  • Skills : JS, Node, npm, ES6 Classes

This is a simple node command line Word Guess game using classes and objects. I allow the user to guess another word without leavig the program as well. I dont count against guess if the letter was already guessed so count does not go down for repeat guess. In addition, I *give* the user special characters and numbers - tey only have to guess letters so if there are special characters or numbers in a word, I provide those for the user.

  • Friends

Find Friends

  • Find Friends
  • Skills : JS, Node, Express, npm, ES6 Classes

This is a Friend Finder application. It is not a dating app. The user answers 10 survey questions and the backend compares those survey results to all the other people who filled out the survey and shows them their closest friend match. It displays that match in a bootstrap model dialog. There is also an option to display ALL the friends who filled out the survey in order of how close they are to you in survey results. The lower the number / score, the closer the match they are to you. That `score` for you vs a single freind is determined by subtracting each answer you picked from each answer a friend picked and taking the absolute value. Those values are totalled for all the answers which gives your match a score. It uses HTML/CSS/Javascript and Bootstrap on the front end and Node/Express on the backend. I have an in memory backend and an optional MySQL backend. Two ES6 classes are swapped in and out to determine which backend storage is used.
