This is a 2D platformer rogue-lite game for browsers that support HTML5. The player controls "Duck Nukem," a character inspired by Duke Nukem. The game's objectives are to explore down, collect items, and hunt monsters.

There are 12 enemies and 17 collectible items, including consumables, relics, and weapons. I coded it all by myself with no reference. The programming language I used is javascript, with support from p5.js libraries. As for graphic and sound design, I drew the weapons and items. And the rest of the assets, including monsters, the protagonist, background images, sound effects, and background music, are license-free assets I downloaded from the Internet. The level designs are automatically generated, which means the enemies' stats are determined by how strong the players' characters are. There is no designed ending for this game, but the expected gaming length is around 20 minutes. Because even if the monsters' stats are still increasing, there won't be any changes in their spirits and behavior patterns. Besides, there is be a chance for crash from data overflow when the game lasts too long. It was the first game I made, and I learned what I could within a time limit of two weeks.
