SIS Students George CHEN, Edward LAY Yong Shun and LEE Hui Min entered the Project Hawaii Mobile Code, part of the 10th Annual IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference (Jan 11-14, 2013).
They won 2nd place with their application Elves and Arrows.
'Elves and Arrows' is a cloud-enhanced 2-player shooting game on the Windows Phone. It employs finger-gestures based firing, compass guided orientation to aim at opponent, and camera feeds of surrounding elements to grab matching colours needed to resupply ammunition and power-up. With the underlying utilization of Microsoft Project Hawaii's services and FlatRedBall as the game engine, players can challenge one another online in the virtual world.
The game provides a whole new experience to mobile gaming by adding in elements of Augmented Reality and multi-player capability. As people are seeking new content, we provide a new way of gaming that lets users immerse themselves to their surroundings.
Team IsCool, said, "An average person has 45 minutes of waiting time a day. In today’s rich media first world, people are actively looking for fresh content to fill up waiting time – be it news, email, games, communication - and this creates a big market for light weight and short games. Our goal is to satisfy people’s craving with a 5-10mins short game that’s suitable to be played during short waits for buses, in between classes, breaks during work etc; providing them with short but rich and engaging game mechanism that brings the virtual game to their environment."
