ULL has recognized a growing trend in computer programming of mobile apps and for the last three years Ducrest and Computer Science Program Coordinator Jim Etheredge have been teaching a mobile device development course. Students Charak Almast and Mani Gyawali had an assignment during a Software Development for Mobile Devices course in 2012 that led them to create a mobile game app that has become quite popular.
The game they created for the assignment and then continued to develop for months after is called Angry Baby. It is an arcade-style game where players help baby Tobu through 20 levels, fighting aliens, fiery planets, comets and obstacles to gather all his toys and find a teleporter.
The game is a very simple game, but can be very addicting. The app can be explored by anyone with an Apple or Android mobile device.
The two students are working together to make a premium version of Angry Baby, with more levels. In addition they are planning on two other games coming out soon. One will be called Candy Catch and the other is a surprise!
Give Angry Baby a try and let us know through a comment on this post how well you do and what you think of the game!
