Tech word assembling game with git commands
Git Words (aka Git ❤️️ and Words 💙) is tech word assembling game. Anyone can join the game by entering a nickname. There are words split as chunks along with labels. Player needs to assemble them using git commands. And Top 10 user leaderboard is updating with players progress on game.
Step 02 : Enter your nick name and click "START GAME" button
Step 03 : You will get few word chunks in purple coloured boxes
Step 04 : You need to arrange those chunks in a correct order
Example: (2)pl (1)es (0)Ap = Apples
To arrange these chuncks we have to use git commands as below
git add 0
git add 2
git add 1
If your arrangement is correct you will gain marks. If your arrangement is incorrect you will not gain any mark.
If the word you are constructing seems wrong you may reset the partially merged word but this will deduct one point.
except that these are other commands you can perform in the terminal.
- clear, cls to clear the console.
- 'music off' to turn off music. 'music on' to turn it back on
And enjoy the game :)

I like how you turn a mundane day to day task for version control into an entertaining game. Took me a bit to get into a rhythm but once I got into I was committing like a mad man!
Was a little bummed that you can't `git reset` an individual file 😢.
Definitely feel more confident adding all the things after playing this game!
A fun and interesting game, I liked the entry.
If you find it interesting, evaluate our entry as well, the comments will be welcome.
enjoyed playing this, was a fun idea! really like how it looks and plays! criticism: music too loud lol!, also would love to see some in-game instructions as i was a little confused at first! but good job everyone! :3
I love the concept you're trying to teach, and the approach you've taken is very creative! I would have liked to see the current progress of words as I typed them (i.e., a "command in progress")
Cool and innovative game! Minus one points in fun because it included "mario died" music. I thought I did something wrong in the game and it ended but it actually didn't end.
Hah! That was fun. Good repetition for learning the muscle memory for these commands. And that was a neat idea for the game in general.
The vocab was a bit repetitive, but given the 48 hours to make it, that's just fine.
Good job, folks!
Cool concept and I dig the retro music. Doesn't look like the leaderboard is updating though not a big deal.
I have to admit that I played a little longer than I expected to haha
I liked the game. But, sometimes I can see undefined problems in my result.
I thought this was a great game to play! It reminds me of a game that taught me how to type when I was young. At first, I thought as the sections were falling that they would fall off and disappear but that didn't happen. I like how my score and timer were displayed so I know what I'm doing. The only downside seems that the scoreboard didn't work since the names and scores were all the same and didn't change after my score was higher than that.
I loved this game! It could turn into an awesome way to teach new users how to use not only git, but other CLIs as well! It worked as expected, except for the leaderboard, the scores don't seem to be posting correctly. Hopefully you continue working on this, I look forward to seeing it become more awesome!
