Category: Arcade games
Arcades and theme park games. The arcades are the first big game project, and thus games in this category are primarily built and developed by first year students. We recommend you use the tag cloud to the right to filter the student work.
In Gate Sealers, two players take the roles of wizard seals trying to defeat more enemies coming from the gate than your co-player. By acting like a seal, you unleash devastating spells upon the enemies and try to be the seal who gets to seal the gate.

Penguins, snowball cannons and a massive ego. This is an arcade game where penguins defeat each other with big fancy cannons in a competitive showdown.
A penguin with a snow cannon represents the player inside the game world. Each player starts with a certain amount of ammunition in their cannon and starts shooting at each other while dodging the other players’ shots. When a player presses the shoot button on the cannon input, a snowball is also fired in the game. To aim where you shoot the snowball, the player must rotate their physical cannon. The ammunition can be reloaded by putting “snowballs” through a tube. When a player runs out of ammunition, they then make the decision to either run to the “snowball” basket for more ammunition and risk getting hit by the enemy or wait until the enemy is out of ammunition themselves and then run to reload.
The game also adds an extra challenge by having randomly spawning covers. The first player to deplete the others health points wins. Some of the more interesting tools we have used include lasers and sensors in order to make the in-game reloading by putting the balls through the tube.

A game which is meant to motivate people to get over differences and just support each other with their strengths. A dragon and a raccoon use their similarities and their differences to achieve goals they could never reach alone. They drag each other across ground, they cannot walk on. They throw each other on places, they could not reach alone. But most importantly, the raccoon uses his marshmallow collection to create newly reachable paths and the dragon uses his fire to open up paths.
This game got created with Unity, Visual Studio, Photoshop, Illustrator, glue, knives and effort!
