Johnny Tractor and Friends: Snow Day

I was brought onto the project to help refactor the application's "Puzzle Time" mode.

The mode contained John Deere characters and the user a meant to fill in their outlines with their various pieces. Once filled in the character would come to life.

However, the mode originally was designed to only support a single character and it was impossibly hard-coded and could not support any more than that specific one. My task was to refactor this system so it was dynamic and could not only support more than one character but also support an interchangable list of characters.

Work Highlights

  • Refactor of "Puzzle Time" mode to support a possibly unlimited number of puzzles
