Projects in Unreal Engine 4

Dynamic Flying compulsories

Released on Android

Released on IOS

This was a project I worked on by myself.

It involved lots of engineering due to the player being able to choose which patterns are played back to back with many variations. All animations are played whilst moving along a spline with inputs determining the characters position.

Speed and camera angles and layout along with many other things can be modified during gameplay to give the player maximum control and learning capabilities.

FS Formation Skydiving

Released on Android

Released on IOS 

This was a project I worked on by myself.

It involved lots of engineering due to the player being able to choose a variety or formations which also has the possibility for a flyer to change positions meaning all future formations the flyer has to change where they go.  With each formation with a unique location and rotation input and with block moves which causes 2 or more flyers to be linked there is a lot going on inside the app.

Speed and camera angles and category selections dependant on skill level along with many other things can be modified during gameplay to give the player maximum control and learning capabilities.

Space Cruise

Released on Android

Released on IOS

I created this project by myself and integrated adverts.

This game is an endless runner type game but in horizontal and vertical movement system.

I created 15 levels which changes speed of movement and the amount of AI or obstacles spawned as the level increases.

This game has a small tutorial and saves the highest score.

Building Escape 

Released on Itch

This was a game jam lasting 3 days. 

Task for 1 room with 1 door to escape from.

I developed a building that is caught on fire and increases in size as time goes on. With small task like puzzles the aim is to escape the building.

Mission Stop-O-Bot

This game was created to have Multiple different types of AI involved in the gameplay along with cinematics during gameplay.

This game includes cinematics throughout the game also.
