Wizard Wars. Android game development
MetadataShow full item record
This project implemented a two player game on mobile devices running the Android operating system. The game, named Wizard Wars, used network communication between the two players, allow them to play on separate devices at different locations. The primary test device for the project was HTC Desire mobile phones. The game uses the touchsceen interface on the phone for all game input, including a gesture recognition system for the main interaction during gameplay. The game involves manoeuvring around an arena and casting spells at the opposing wizard. Starting this project, the group had minimal experience with game programming. After many hours of studying game technology and the Android system, trying, failing and debugging code, we have learned a lot about working in a team and creating larger systems. We have spent 3 years learning several topics and in this project we have used these topics in a practical situation, which has given us a new view and insight into these topics.
