We received an order to develop 4 games for the release of LEGO MOVIE. Games are built into the McDonalds Happy Meal app.
The LEGO Movie Batman is an "endless runner". The game is cross-platform: supported on mobile devices based on iOS, Android.
Player controls the Batmobile in 4 lanes (2 - on the ground, 2 - on the roofs). At the beginning of the game there is a starting supply of fuel, which is enough for a while. The player replenishes supplies along the way, collecting canisters of fuel.
Objective: drive as long as possible and collect maximum points. Game will end when a player crashes into an obstacle.
Development from idea to release took 45 days.
Over this time: • Hooked up timer in game. • Hooked up particle system. • Developed an obstacle course. • Made the game cross-platform. • Implemented control of the Batmobile with fingers. • Implemented automatic jumps on springboards on the roofs of houses. • Hired as a mathematician-programmer to create a 3D perspective simulation. • Developed and implemented an algorithm for scattering fuel and other game items. • Implemented 4 types of game items: fruit, Wyldstyle, fuel and obstacles.
The player controls the batmobile using the right / left slices and the Grapple Hook button. Slices are used to rearrange between the strips.
Fruits appear in a series of 4 pcs. on the strips in a random order. 5 points for each fruit. The collected series gives +15 points.
• Developed 1 of 4 LEGO MOVIE ™ Launch Games. • Prepared the game for implementation to other software.
