How to Build a Pacman Game with Lazy

How to Build a Pacman Game with Lazy

Welcome to this step-by-step guide on how to build and deploy a Pacman game using the Lazy platform. This template provides you with a fully functional Pacman game that you can control using arrow keys, complete with a maze, dots to collect, and ghosts to avoid.

Getting Started

To begin building your Pacman game, click Start with this Template on the Lazy platform. This will pre-populate the code in the Lazy Builder interface, so you won't need to copy or paste any code manually.

Initial Setup

There's no need for initial setup or environment secrets for this template. Lazy handles all the deployment details, so you can focus on building your game.

Testing the Game

Once you've started with the template, press the Test button. This will begin the deployment of your Pacman game and launch the Lazy CLI. If the code requires any user input, you will be prompted to provide it through the Lazy CLI.

Entering Input

If the game requires any user input, you will be prompted for it after pressing the Test button. Follow the instructions in the CLI to enter the necessary information.

Using the Pacman Game

After deployment, Lazy will provide you with a dedicated server link to play your Pacman game. The game features a maze where you can control Pacman using the arrow keys on your keyboard. Collect dots to gain points and avoid the ghosts that roam the maze. If a ghost catches Pacman, the game will end, and you can start over by refreshing the page.

Integrating the Game

If you wish to integrate the Pacman game into an external service or frontend, you can use the server link provided by Lazy after deployment. For example, you can embed the game in a website by adding an iframe with the server link as the source.

Here's a sample code snippet to embed the Pacman game:

        <iframe src="YOUR_LAZY_SERVER_LINK" width="600" height="400"></iframe>

Replace YOUR_LAZY_SERVER_LINK with the actual link provided by Lazy.

Enjoy building and customizing your Pacman game with Lazy!
