Making PDF Game Tutorial Part 3: Hyperlinking

Hello, Everyone! Previous part 2, I was teaching on making the game content as step for making pdf game. After making the game content, it still can't be played yet as pdf game. You still need to hyperlink it first. This hyperlink will link an element (text, picture, etc) to other page.

Before we start on hyperlinking stuffs in this tutorial, I will teach you the the basic of hyperlinking. Be sure to master this basic technique because if you make a pdf game, you will always use this to link to other page and making gameplay by going to other page.

Now, for an example. 

  • Create a text in the slide 1 (the title screen)
  • Type "Hyperlink Example"

  • After that, right click the text. Be sure when right clicking, the mouse shows 4 ways icon, not the "I" shape (like shown in the image blow).

- Choose "Place in This Document". You will see list of slides . We will focus on the slides below the Slide Titles (from Slide 1 to Slide 4).

- In this example, we will click "Slide 3".
- After that, click the OK button. You are done.

For testing, go to Slide Show by pressing F5. You will see the Title Screen. Click the "Hyperlink Example" text you made. If you go to Ending Screen, then it works. Exit from Slide Show. Delete the "Hyperlink Example" text since it won't be needed anymore.

Now, since you have learned the basic on how to hyperlink, we can go forward to hyperlink our game.

In Slide 1 (Title Screen)

  • Give hyperlink to "Start Game", choose Slide 2

In Slide 2 (Gameplay)

  • Give hyperlink to "Fight", choose Slide 3
  • Give hyperlink to "Give up", choose Slide 4

In Slide 3 (Ending)

  • Give hyperlink to "Return", choose Slide 1

In Slide 4 (Gameover)

  •  Give hyperlink to "Return", choose Slide 1

Now, test it with F5. If it goes like the list above, then you are done making the game. Congratulation! Don't forget to save it! Then for the final step, you will need to export your file into a pdf file. I will explain it in the next part "Export as PDF".

Making PDF Game Tutorial Part 1: Game Engine and PDF Plugin

Before starting to make a pdf game. You need some tools. So, in this tutorial I will explain what tool you need to make a pdf game.

Game Engine

The application I use is Microsoft Power Point 2007. You can try to use other version since I haven't tested it myself. This engine will be used to make the content. Also, in this whole tutorial, I will use Microsoft Power Point 2007.

If you use the 2010 or 2013, you can save as pdf without any plugin.

PDF Plugin

This one will be important especially to export your ppt/ pptx file from Power Point into pdf. Since Power Point 2007 can't save as pdf yet, you need to install its plugin first first.

You can download the plugin free (for 2007 only):

After you downloaded it, you need to install the plugin. Be sure the power point is not opened yet to apply the effect of the plugin. If you have succeeded installing it, open your power point and click this button like the image below.

After that, you click the right arrow beside the Save As. After that, you will see the option to save your power point file as PDF.

That's the tutorial of the game engine and the pdf plugin you need to make a pdf game. The next part 2 will be about Making Game Content,

Also, you can check the list of making pdf game tutorial by visiting this link below.

Little Bubble's Little Adventure

Made a game sooner. This game actually planned to be submitted for 1GAM month August, but since I was running out of time, I postponed this game and replaced with other game. After I finished the other game, I decided to continue this game and submit this game for 1GAM month September and theme Hexagons. Also, I tried the new style like my previous game "Count the 1!" and "Egg on Neddle". I am still experimenting the pattern and the color. For the next game or not, I probably will try with the lighting with this style. Also, enjoy :3.
