TIM & KYM Stub Out the Diabolical Smokey Joe was a game that Bloc were commissioned to make by the British Heart Foundation. The premise was that it would be to warn children the dangers of smoking. There would be a version for general play on the internet which children could play whenever they wanted and a version to be taught in schools to kids during key stage 2 and 3. We decided that we would make a platform game with 4 levels and a boss level. As the kids played through the levels they would collect tips about smoking whilst cleaning cigarette butts and jumping on the heads of smokers. They would then use the knowledge they had gained in a quiz at the end of each level. This would then lead to the final level in which you had to defeat the evil Smokey Joe.
Coming up with ideas for this fun and educational game for children was very rewarding. My part in the project was brainstorming, creating levels, creating music, testing and building the holding page for the SWF to sit in.
