I created the game called Cigarette Pong. It’s basically a 2 player pong game. The player controls a trash bin. There are also Earth's behind the players and they have to try and protect their Earth, while also hitting the opponent’s Earth. The ball is a cigarette and if it hits a player’s Earth, then the opposite player gets the point and the first player to 10 wins. I came up with the idea because I wanted to show how smoking and vaping are contributing to Earth's litter problem. Cigarettes are the most littered item and they aren’t biodegradable. My game tells people the drawbacks of cigarettes for not only how it affects people, but the world as well.
In the photos, you can see my design process. I first drew out each stage of my game and then created the backgrounds. I then created the images and placed them where I wanted them to be in the game. The game link takes you to the game I made on scratch. The slides link takes you to my presentation.
Great job with your video and background information. I really like that this is a 2 player game, I was able to test it out with my family and this sparked a conversation about the issue. Maybe you could propose some discussion questions to promote this effect. Really well done.
Manan, I really appreciated the presentation of your project and that you described your design process. Your game is simple yet fun. I thought it was really great that you included the facts before and after gameplay, this made sure people at least got some of the facts. I am not exactly sure if it was a glitch but when I played the game, the WS keys did not work so maybe think about allowing the user to choose which controls to use. I also thought the design of your game was awesome, the use of the trash cans protecting earth from the cigarettes is brilliant.
Fun "pong" style game. I enjoyed playing it with my self! Paddle size and game speed in on point, nicely done.
Great idea and message
Love the interactive way you get people to be conscious about cleaning up cigarette litter and putting them where they belong... in the trash
