pirates vs. ninjas
Pirates vs. Ninjas is an Android-game I and a fellow student made for the multimedia exercise at the university. You are a pirate captain who has stolen the alcohol supplies of the ninjas. Those are now very mad and attack your crew and your ship. Arm yourself and shoot them down!
Our task was to implement an Android-game in Java (with some restrictions). We had to do the game-design, programming and animations. (however, we were allowed to use graphics and sounds made by friends)
My specific task was the game-design, software-architecture, performance, the weapon-system, the sound-management and the animations.
We have stopped development. Unfortunately, this game has a lot of bugs, so it is not ready to be published in the play store.
In Pirates vs. Ninjas you take the role of the pirate captain. You and your crew have stolen the alcohol supplies of the ninjas, while they were celebrating with their friend. And they obviously love their alcohol: The have started the attack! Take your weapons and defend the alcohol.
You have got a lot of weapons with their own strengths and weaknesses: a cannon, throwing knives, bombs, a glue bomb and your best friends, the vikings (they have ships, beards and they love alcohol)
But don’t underestimate your enemies. The ninjas have allied with the samurai and sumo ringers and they are determined to get their beloved alcohol back. They will build towers and their leaders are great strategists.
The game was developed for the multimedia exercise at Vienna University of Technology. It was programmed for Android with Java. This was our first Android App, so there are still a lot of errors. If we wanted to improve the game, we would have to drop the entire code base and do it again, but we learned a lot, so we are curious for our next Apps 🙂
The game had to be developed in teams of two. A fellow student and I were keen to do this work together. Two dear friends of mine did the great menu-artwork and the awesome sound design.
