Donut Let It Fall: Catch Game

I created a catch game called ‘Donut Let It Fall’ where you have to catch falling donuts and it has 2 levels (got carried away a bit – took me 3 days to build this, working 4-7 hours a day).

  • Start with 3 lives.

  • Earn extra points when you catch stars in your tray, extra life with lightening bolt.
  • Lose points when you touch a regular bug.
  • Lose a life when you touch the danger bug (the second one)
  • Score 300 points to level up.
  • Score 600 points to win!

Graphics & inspiration

The basic idea of the Donut Let It Fall game is inspired by my childhood handheld game which had a chef catching meat. But we have donuts because I’m a vegetarian! The extras like bugs and stars, chef’s motion and the font, are inspired by 90s retro games like Mario and Contra. I designed all the graphics like chef, donuts in the cute themes like candy, clouds, inspired by Japanese kawaii. And ChatGPT helped me make the assets like chef and backgrounds, which I then edited in Photoshop. I found some fun sounds and sprites within Scratch to use, too.
