This game is part of a series of educational games created by UNSW. The purpose of this game was to teach the fundamental engineering concept of free body diagrams to first year engineering students. In addition to the game, there will be future games created to market pre-tertiary education to students.
The game was built with our bespoke Mode HTML5 game engine, which makes use of third party libraries such as Web Audio API, PIXI, and Box2D. We built this game in HTML5, which allows it to be played on any device and is versatile. Its fluid resolution and 100% fit resolution provided a great cross-platform experience.
We provided the following services:
The first game design we developed is a variation of the popular block game "Jenga". UNSW students are challenged to maintain the tower's structural integrity, while trying to remove a set number of blocks. Based on the amount of structural shift of the blocks in the tower while removing them, the player is awarded a status. A total of ten stages are presented with short, exciting levels that at times can be challenging to complete.
"Mode have a level of polish and attention to detail to their work that is impressive and rare. I'd recommend that you talk to them about your next game project."
"Thank you Mode for believing in the kids we work with and throwing everything that you and the team had at this project. And finally – thanks for delivering a super cool and engaging game. Hip hop meets maths and science – got me hooked!"
