In my first programming class at CMU, 15-112: Fundamentals to Programming, I created a fully functional replica of the online
Neopets game, Dubloon Disaster, in Python using the PyGame library. The main features of the gameplay includes moving around the map
trying to collect dubloons while avoiding the many mines that are following you around trying to blow you up.
I added in a new feature of powerups in order to make the game easier, and also had has many features that I could from the original game
coded into here, such as the whirlpools and the speedup of the mines as they get closer to you. I also used the original artwork
from the original version, by taking screenshots of the game as I was playing it, and editing the screenshots in photoshop to get
my game backgrounds and sprites. As such, artwise, my remake looks very close to the original, other than the whirlpool sprites.
The main aspects that I did not implement from the original are the ripple effects on the water background as the sprites move
and a high score table. The music is from Pirates of The Carribean!
