Babushka Run - A Co-Op Platform Game

Nathalie Schwartz, Nicolas Vondru & Vanessa Buchmann present Babushka Run. It is a pixelstyle 2D platform game, akin to Super Mario, where the goal is to reach the end of the level without dying. The goal for our project was to implement new controls for the game via websockets. Previously one would control the player character locally via keyboard and mouse. We moved those controls to be executed remotely on mobile devices, where players can control the character via touchscreen. Additionally, we transformed the game from single player to multiplayer, using web socket technologies, where up to three people can take over the different functions of the character to work through the level in collaboration with one another.
