Free Template Tuesday #10 – Tumult Hype “Reveal”

Thumbnail - Split EmojiThis week’s Tumult Hype template is a quick guide on how to create a “reveal” effect. Sometimes, you might want to compare two objects. Perhaps picture #1 shows the outside of the human body and picture #2 shows what’s underneath. Perhaps the reveal picture shows undergarments, no clothing at all or an image of organs.

Free Template Tuesday #9 – Tumult Hype “Lock”

Lock Emoji ThumbnailRunning a popular website can be very expensive. Hotlinking is one of the way hosting can become unnecessarily expensive for webmasters.

The end result is a project that grew larger than expected. If you’re looking for a way to create quizzes, the “United States Capitals Quiz” template could be a great starting point. It tackles complex issues, such as working with arrays and randomizing the display of that data.

Free Template Tuesday #6 – Tumult Hype “FPS”

Frames Per Second (FPS) ThumbnailI believe that Tumult Hype can be great game development software. It’s easy to use, but it’s powerful. It even has a built-in physics engine. In the HTML5 era of web development, it’s the perfect replacement for Flash. The problem is that Hype is lacking a few key features to unlock the potential. The Frames Per Second (FPS) template is a little nudge in that direction. Hype might not be totally geared for game development, but there are some features that we can add on our own.
