CMSC 425 - Fall 2018 - Turner - Race to Graduation
by Olivia Turner

Race to Graduation is a Temple Run-like game where the player controls a character in order to collect rewards and avoid obstacles. In this case, the rewards are A's and the obstacles are F's, Netflix, and procrastination. The character is continuously running, but the player can move him side-to-side or make 90 degree turns to remain on the path. Both the path route and the obstacles are randomly generated, so the game is different each time it's played. Collecting 10 A's symbolizes one school year, and as the player moves up in grade level from freshman to senior, the character runs faster. If the player collects 3 F's then they fail out of school and lose the game. Similarly, they lose the game if they hit the Netflix or procrastination obstacles, or if they fall off the path.

Using a mix of well-placed shots and offside interference, outplay the AI to win. Be careful though: crossing the net means you won't be in place to return the ball if the AI manages to return it.

Players get to choose between damage, attack speed, more ammo max, or more health max and healing when they complete every level, while all enemies get more health and damage every two levels.

Be careful - pirates may jump through portals and show up in places you weren't expecting, and don't let the pirates leave the map with a chest, as you'll lose a chest.

CMSC 425 - Fall 2018 - Honer - Procedural Generation Pack
by Alexander Honer

Rather than making a game, I decided to make a pack that would allow unity users to easily create procedurally generated levels. This would allow unity users to rapidly prototype games with the ability to focus more on gameplay features and let generation of interesting terrain be done automatically. I believe this is valuable as many of the games demoed in class had relatively simplistic terrain as the focus was getting the concepts of the game created. My project is divided into two separate utilities. The first being a procedural cliff generation script, the second being a larger landmass generator.
