The prompt for this code challenge states "The goal of this exercise is to create a game. In the game, dots move from the top to the bottom of the screen. A player tries to click on the dots, and receives points when they are successful." There are additional guidelines and build instructions that I used as a starting point for my game, but I wanted to put something extra into it.
I searched for game console inspiration on Dribbble (and beyond) and gave a lot of attention to the UI. I felt the visual hierarchy of items in the console should be:
I wanted the console to have an inverse color theme (dark background) with a pop of color. I couldn't decide which pop of color I liked best so I gave the user the ability to choose. It was fun and easy to implement the CSS variables with Sass and jQuery. I gave my game the tagline "choose your color adventure" to further promote this option to the user and because it sounds on-brand with gaming jargon.
