FHS Junior Creates New Puzzle Game App
Zachary explained that it had taken him about three to four months to make the game itself, but the bigger challenge was making it compatible to the IOS platform, which took him another two to three months. Zachary said he was able to successfully create this app thanks to the skills he has developed in the Computer Science Academy and reading and watching tutorials online. Currently, “Laser Glow” has been downloaded more than 200 times and is available on both Apple and Android devices. Zachary’s goal is to reach 1,000 downloads. He plans on adding more levels to keep users engaged and playing the game.
