I coded a spherical Pacman game entirely using c++ and OpenFrameworks.

The game is a combination between Pacman and Bomberman, just like pacman you move in maze, and like in Bomberman, you can place bombs which will destroy obstacles and obliterate the enemies. The goal is to eat all pallets without getting caught by any ghosts.

I made an arcade cabinet out of cardboard, colored paper and transparent sheets of plastic. A coin detection system was built to detect when a coin is inserted. A joystick and LED-button are used to control the game, and a led-strip is placed around the screen for an extra ‘wow’ factor. For the screen an iPad is used.
