Very first game attempt. Would LOVE feedback!

Recommended Posts

So its a very short Adventure/Text type game. Like the Goosebumps "Choose you own path" things or whatever. Please not too much hate, I JUST started trying to learn Python, Im on Chapter 4 on this http://programarcadegames.com/ and got the idea to do a little something. I would really appreciate cunstructive feedback though. Redundant coding or bugs or easy ways to improve. Thanks for taking your time to look at my project!! (: Hope you enjoy.

Im not allowed to post it for some reason? So..heres the code. Hope someone can do something with it :/

 

 

# So the choices for each section are as follows;
# First choice between y and n for yes and no.
# Second choice is also y and n for yes and no
# Third choice is l and r for left and right
# Fourth choice is s and b for sword and bow
# Fifth choice is d and p if you chose the sword before for door and path, or just p for path for the bow.

        done = True;
        print("You should be ashamed...")
    elif shutDown == "y" :
        caveEntrance = input("You step up to a moss covered opening into the mountainside. It's dark and you can feel an odd cool breeze coming from it. Do you have the nerve to enter? ")
        if caveEntrance == "n" :
                done = True;
                print("Come on, you seriously done already?")
        elif caveEntrance == "y" :
            forkOne = input("After a few minutes of traveling down the corridors you see a fork in your path. The passage to the left is considerably smaller than the one to the right, and has a warm, almost soothing smell coming from it. The passage to the right seems to drop about 10 degrees in temperature, a spooky breeze rolls past as you look into the darkness. Which path do you choose? ")
            if forkOne == "r" :
                done = True;
                print("An enormous troll steps out almost immediately as you take to the right-handed path and picks you up, devouring your head.")

You reach down and your hand is met by the cool touch of steel. There lies a short sword and a battered shield. A few feet away you see a worn longbow and an old quiver. Having traveled quite some time now you feel you only have the strength to carry one set. Which weapon would you prefer? ")

The weight of a sword hilt could open the door. Past it the path continues into the darkness. Do you choose to smash the lock, if you're able? Or delve deeper into the cavern? ")

As you step in your feet are swarmed with brightly colored spiders. They crawl up your legs biting as they go. You stubble out of the doorway but no where near in time, your last sight the broken rusted padlock...")

At the far end of the room, sat at an enormous table covered in half eaten animals and melons, you can make out the large silhouette of a rugged looking bandit. The floor between you and him littered in bones. You try to sneak up on him to try and take him out quickly but the bandit hears your ambush attempt, and stands up swinging an enormous axe that rips your digestive tract from your gut...")

You can't help but bath in the smell of decay. Across the room you see a very formidible bandit accompanied by a large axe. You decide diplomacy is not the route in dungeons, so you draw your bow and shoot a single arrow into the back of the bandits neck. He slumps over in his seat harmlessly and you walk on, soon finding a well built door that opened into the fresh morning air..")

Please not too much hate, I JUST started trying to learn Python

Why hate, you have done, what many do not understand when starting game development: start with a small project and finish it !

Looks good, congratulations and keep it up wink.png

Here is a coding tip.  If you know that all of your options are going to have 2 choices and basically do the same thing, you could wrap up that code into a function.  That way you can organize your code in such a way as, "here is the display code" and "here is the logic code".  Then later on, when you want to change the display code, you just do that in the one function, and everything will still work the same way, but now look slightly differently.
