Balloons in the SkyBalloons in the Sky by Danni Ann Taylan, De La Salle College of St. Benilde

The overall gameplay of Balloon in the Sky is that balloons will fly to the sky, and the players will have to pop as many balloons as possible within one minute to gain the highest score. The game is divided into two sections: the Classic and the Twister. In the Classic section, balloons will fly to the sky and the player must pop as many balloons as possible within one minute. The Twister section, on the other hand, is similar to the Classic section, but with its own special features: Frenzy, which spawns many balloons in the screen, Freeze, which slows the movements of the balloons, and Double, which doubles the score given by each balloon. The game will be over once the time ends.

Crime SweeperCrime Sweeper by John Pineda, De La Salle College of St. Benilde

Crimesweeper is based from the popular puzzle game, Minesweeper, but it has its own twist. Crimesweeper is a puzzle game wherein the player takes the role of a criminal, and the game’s main objective is to avoid being caught by the police. The overall layout of the game is like Minesweeper, wherein there is a grid or a plane filled with small boxes. At the start of the game, the player (the criminal) will have to choose a box from the grid as his “hideout”. After choosing, the boxes beside the box that the player chooses will be flipped, and will reveal numbers that signify the number of police that is nearby. Using these clues, the player will have to evade the police (the mines) in order to win the game.

Moody Chameleon is a game application that will test the player’s focus. The player must tap on the chameleon that matches the given color at the top of the screen but beware because the word might be read as “BLUE” but it is colored “RED” (BLUE) to distract the focus of the player. Also, the player is given only a short amount of time to tap the correct answer, the player loses life points and some score if he/she taps the wrong chameleon or was not able to tap a chameleon before the color and chameleons are reshuffled.

Skate Dice

Skate Dice by Kevin Tan, Alvin Cris Uy, Karen Cate Arabit, and Angela Grace Garong, iACADEMY

With Skate Dice, your trick is determined by a roll of four dice containing various trick combinations on each die. One die is for the stance, this delegates the direction the player will be riding and uses of the nose or tail on the skateboard. The second die determines whether the player will be doing a frontside or backside trick variation. The third die determines if the player will be rotating the skateboard either 180 degrees or 360 degrees or not at all. The fourth and final die determines if the trick rolled will have to incorporate a kick flip or heel flip. Along with the various trick combinations there is an element of chance by not knowing what trick will come next, adding a slight spin on the classic skateboarding game.
