After watching a fellow hacker using Pusher for a cool real-time application, it inspired us to create a football game, allowing users to use their smartphones as virtual controllers to control an individual football player.
What it does
When connected to the URL, the system will detect whether you are using a smartphone or a computer to connect to it. If you are connecting using a smartphone, It will redirect you to a "controller" page which has a virtual joystick and a "Kick" button. The computer will be redirected to the game display where the actual game will be shown as the users control the players with their phones.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
As a whole team, we were able to overcome the daunting Pusher API and made a very impressive game (at least in my opinion ;) ). Also, I and my team had amazing teamwork as we worked to each other's strengths and helped each other out when we could.
