We love a good game of bingo, but it can quickly get stale and so we have tried to make it more interesting by creating a crossover with a retro favourite, Space Invaders. And so came the birth of Bingo Invaders!
What it does
Play space invaders but instead of trying to kill all the aliens, shoot the required numbers on your bingo card to complete a row and win!
How we built it
Built partially using an existing Java implementation of Space Invaders, changing the game logic almost completely and added our own sprites and game win conditions. We used Java for our back-end and Java Swing components for our GUI.
Challenges we ran into
We did not have the time to deploy the game to allow for online play.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
After several botched ideas, we ended up with a shorter amount of time than we would have liked to make this.
What we learned
Discuss ideas until you find one that everyone agrees on being plausible.
What's next for Bingo Invaders
Manage to deploy using Heroku, so that everyone can experience the game on a demo site. Make a player versus player mode with both players competing to fill a row first. Add different difficulty settings. Add sound effects.
