Maze Game Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting an aMazing Maze game!

Sometimes things do not work the way they should. There are so many bits and pieces that go into making a game that it can sometimes be difficult to pinpoint the problem.

Let’s have a look at some common problems. See if you can find and fix the game!

All these examples are Maze Games. The Player should be set to move with the Arrow Keys. But things do not always work the way they should…

Remember to SAVE and TEST your games EACH TIME a new feature is added. That way, if things do not work properly you will have an idea of where the problem is.

For example, if you have just added a collectible object and your player is disappearing from the game, look in the collision event between your player and points object. This is what happens in Problem #4.
