This mini game was built with Microsoft XNA (XNA Creators club) using the Marblets starter kit. The main aim is to clear the snowflakes at the bottom of the screen by matching to a snowflake at the top. Matching is initially based on colour, then it is based on shape, then back to matching on colour and so on. The challenge comes as the time allowed to make matches decreases and you must switch between matching colours and matching shapes more frequently. Although the rules of the game are simple to learn, matching based on shape and changing match criteria can be quite challenging, leading to an engaging game. The snowflake images were taken from dezignus, but all other graphics and audio was designed by myself.
The initial idea was inspired by idea 5 of the game idea a week project. You can install and play the game by downloading it from this game zip file. The entire source code can be downloaded in this source code zip file.
This was the first digital game I created on my own.
