New arcade game – Grand National

I really have to write to this blog some more. It’s not that I’m short of ideas or thoughts more that I just don’t have the hours in the day any more.

grandnationalI recently took a week’s break at the coast with the family and really enjoyed the clarity and countless ice creams. On a few occassions we wandered in to the seafront arcade where my daughter got hooked on dropping 2p coins in to the simple betting games. One such game is Grand National. We’ve all seen it. You drop the coin in to the horse that you wish to back then watch as they all race.

If your horse comes in you win the prize depending on the odds.  My daughter absolutely adored this game and actually became quite good at guessing the winners.
So naturally I got thinking about creating a digital version using JavaScript that she could play on screen.
Here’s the result

Hopefully it’s intuitive enough to just pick up and play :)
