As I have mentioned in my previous blog post, I am joining both my p5.js and Arduino skills to create a project that I call Hoop Trivia! Hoop Trivia is a traditional basketball arcade game mixed with trivia. It is inspired by an arcade game in Dave and Buster’s called Connect 4 Hoops, where players play connect 4 by throwing basketballs into one of the columns.
- Press “c” to enter a quarter.
- Press the Left Arrow button to select Player 1.
- Press the Right Arrow button to select Player 2.
- Press numbers 1-4 to shoot a basketball and select one of the multiple choices.
The next few days I will be linking the hardware components to my p5.js sketch using Serialization so switches and buttons will replace the keyboard events.
I have not been able to fully develop the full player mode since it has been quite tricker than I anticipated. Therefore, for the winter show, I will only be showcasing the 1 player mode. With more time and resources, I would like to add more animations to this interface and more sound effects!
** Ps. I am not sure how to share a link to my private GitHub Repository 😦
