Flappy Kinect

Motion-controlled Flappy Bird clone
Tech: Kinect 2
Team size: 3
Dev time: 1 day

Flappy Kinect is a prototype I developed while working at The Atom Group. It was developed as an alternative or additional option in the same package as Banco Blaster and Breakout Kinect.

What I did…

  • Developed game match/high score systems, and randomization of level elements
  • Produced and implemented all sound effects

The Kinect tracks the flapping motion using the velocity of the hand joints. Gentle flaps pop you up just a little. Large, majestic swoops send you soaring.
