2013 Ubuntu App Showdown Contest

Canonical announced the app showdown contest and I think I’ll partecipate.

Yesterday, I tought about what kind of app I should develop.

In my opinion, there are two different classes of applications that can be developped:

  1. Utilities app
  2. Games

Utilites app are easier to deveolp, cause the graphic interfece is a lot easier. With games, there’s no pre-built objects, there are more more more animations etc.

With my knowledge, I think I could develop an utility application, but since it is impossible for me to win, it would be interesting and useful for me to think of developing a game.
As I said, to develop a game I’ve really to improove my QML animations skills, and I’ve to start using inkscape too, that could be a real problem.

I don’t know if I’ll really publish my game, but I think I’m gonna try to do it.

The Game

I’ve already thought about what game I should build.
It has to be simple, cause, as I said,  this is the first app of this kind I try to make.
The idea is simple. A cannon on the bottom that could be moved in the x assis and enemies that go down from the top. You can shoot them and some of them can shoot you.

I hope I’ll be able to do that 😀
News soon 😉
