Details

Our game is reminiscent of a jackpot arcade game. Specifically, one similar to the one in the image to the right. Instead of aiming for the “jackpot” to win tickets, the object of the game will be to help WU score a basket. It will be a much more simplified version, but the concept of how it works will still be the same. Instead of a ring of lights, there will be a simple line of eleven lights. The light in the center being a perfect swish. The ones immediately left and right will simulate bouncing off the rim and the rest will just be a missed shot. The lights will run back and forth on their own, and will only stop on a light when the player pushes a button. Depending on where the player stops the lights, certain sounds will be produced. For example, if the player gets a perfect swish, a short victory tune will play similar to older 8-bit games. A different tune will play when the player “bounces off the rim” and when the player “misses.” The LEDs will resume their back and forth motion after being stationary for 3 seconds.

Shocker theme…Awesome! Good idea, will be fun for kids to try at Exploration Place. Don’t forget to amplify the sound. something as simple as a shoe box works well.

Good Luck!
