Inspired by old school sidescroller fighting games like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, we wanted to put a hacker-inspired spin on an old classic.

What it does

College Student Hacker Guy (CSHG) moves with arrow keys and shoots with space! They defend their Hacker Den from pesky bugs.

How we built it

Unity and C# scripting. We also used various drawing programs (SAI, piskel) for all in-game art and assets.

Challenges we ran into

We originally tried to do melee combat, but ran into an issue with the punching animation being too slow to register hitting the enemy, resulting in the player almost always getting hurt instead. Because of this, we refactored the game to involve a ranged fighting style instead.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

All in-game art and assets are hand-drawn by us, excluding the logo, made here: We also implemented a parallax background using separate background layers that scroll at different increments according to the camera's movement.

What we learned

This was our first time implementing a parallax background, so that was a fun learning experience for us!

What's next for College Student Hacker Guy

The hacker guy continues to hack.

Play it here!
