Concept :

Action/platformer game where the player play as a Polar Bear Ninja using projectiles (shurikens, bombs and cupcakes) and some ninja powers (all log-based) to defeat the member of the opposing team and to capture their flag as often as possible.


  • Only 48 hours to design and develop the game
  • One artist and three programmers
  • We had to integrate a theme and two genres into the design, chosen randomly

Personal realisation:

  • Enemies movements and AI
  • Implementing special powers
  • Drawing the special powers and the flags
  • Display and general coding of the enemies’ tongues
