Dr.Dobbs Silverlight Programming Game Challenge
« on: April 10, 2009, 03:18 PM »
This could be a good way for anyone who was interested in learning to code using Microsoft's Flash Killer, Silverlight:

Welcome to Dr. Dobb's Challenge Deuce, a special game competition brought to you in association with the world-renowned Dr. Dobb's for software developers and Microsoft Visual Studio.

Use Dr. Dobbs and his team of friends to play the game and collect Visual Studio power-ups -- or team up with your own friends to develop your own games and levels!

You can win from a prize pool of $10,000 in two ways:

1. Use the "Create" option to make new in-game levels in the Silverlight application itself, and be automatically entered into a 'best level' competition, with Dr. Dobbs Bobblehead doll prizes given out weekly, plus monthly 'best level' prizes of $500!

2. If you really want to flex your creative muscle, download the Silverlight sample application and modify the code and art in a free trial version of Visual Studio to make your own completely custom game, then get it showcased on the Dr. Dobbs Challenge Deuce site.

I think it would be wonderful to see someone modify the sample game and use cody and his coins for the main game..

these files of cody walking using flash might help if anyone is interested, you'll have to convert or edit them somehow.
