Slater Challenge

Are you looking for an opportunity to learn coding and push your creativity to the limit? Look no further because Slater Challenge is here!

Slater, in collaboration with Webflow, is hosting a game competition with big prizes. Not like, "oh, that's a fun prize," but we're talking:

$1000.00 toward WebflowConf travel

$500.00 toward WebflowConf travel

The challenge: make a game!

The idea here is to push your JS creativity to the limit - recreate games like Snake, SpaceInvaders, Code Pong or maybe something more modern like doodle jump, flappy bird, or Candy Crush or make your own game!👇

Whether you're a coding expert or a beginner, this is your chance to learn and have fun at the same time. So, what are you waiting for? Join the Slater Challenge now and unleash your coding skills.

The Slater Challenge is all about creating a game using any of the techniques Slater offers. The sky's the limit, but if you need some ideas, why not try to recreate classic games such as Snake, Space Invaders, or Pong?

Or, even better, come up with your own game design. We encourage you to let your imagination run free and create something that reflects your style, personality, and creativity.

How will you be judged?

You will be judged by 4 judges across 3 categories: originality, creativity and execution.

1) Originality

Original means we are delighted by seeing something we can't see in other competitors. Original is may be something simple like a game element or something that totally throws the judges!

2) Creativity

If you're making something, make sure it is not just original but colourful, playful, creative. It's a game after all.

3) Execution

Does your cool, original and creative idea function well? Is it easy to use? Can the judges actually play it?
