Student projects are added irregularly and in no particular order. These are projects stretching back to 2002, from students in their 1st, 2nd and 3rd year and using vastly different tech. Thus; we recommend you use the tag cloud to the right to filter the projects you’re interested in!

You are a thief rushing through a mine shaft, tossing and detonating dynamite sticks to fill up your cart with gold. Yet the night is short, hurry up and collect as much gold as possible before sunrise. Timing is crucial! If you detonate the dynamite too early, you fill your cart with worthless stones, but wait too long and you lose your earnings. Perfect timed explosions results in a “Gold Rush” state, which increases the score multiplier and the pace of the game. The final result is a hectic arcade game where you fight for the highest score to become the most wanted.
