Disc Wars! – Playstation 2

Disc Wars! was a Tron themed 2D sprite game created for the first submission for Console Development.

At the time we in the process of learning and developing a framework for the Playstation 2 using the Linux development kits.

Most of the work for this submission was based around playing around with the frameworks sprite class. At this point we had not covered loading in textures , so I explored playing with the drawing information being passed to create gradients and patterns.


The player controls the grey triangle – with forwards/backwards and rotational movement only. The black line within the rings indicates the current direction of incoming discs – which must be dodged by the player. During  the game the center rings will pulse and rotate before settling on a new direction – changing the direction of all the discs in doing so.
