Trump Jump!

Not many teenagers, especially those who have the ability to vote, understand and have an interest in politics. As a group we created a game that satires the 2016 presidential election. We created Trump Jump as incentive to learn more about politics and the republican candidates running to become our president. The different types of languages we used were HTML, CSS and JavaScript. We used HTML and CSS to create and design our website. Java Script is used to create the implications of the game like jumping and the power ups. We also used java script to create a character selector which hasn't been used in games similar to this one. We would hope that our website becomes a place where teenagers and children can visit and become inspired to learn about politics. In the future we would like to add the option to play as democrat candidates and have opposing parties play against each other to race to the top. We hope that in time trump jump will be popular enough where the percentage of teenage voters increase.

"My favorite part about working on this project was being able to work with my amazing new friends! Also I loved the feeling after you FINALLY solve a problem that you and your teammates have worked on forever."
