Oliver’s Updraft Adventure

For the 20th Anniversary release of "Oliver and Company" Disney wanted to created a fun game for younger kids. Based on a charming sequence in the movie I came up with and created "Oliver's Updraft Adventure", a game that is still popular on Disney's site today.

This simple but addictive game was created in Flash using AS3 and a custom physics engine I wrote for the project.

The introduction to the game is an actual clip from the movie which seamlessly transitions into the first level.

The game elements are a combination of imagery screen-captured and manipulated from the film itself, and original illustrations that I created, including the Oliver character sprite.

The game takes place in an animated 2.5D environment. Levels advance using a mathematical progression so that there are theoretically an unlimited number of levels for skilled players to progress through.

In testing we never saw anyone get past level 7.
