Week Four - Finalization, Presentation and Demo!

This week was the week we completed work on the final project. This is also the week we decided to rename our project from Rollerball! to Speed Demon! Thus the redone website :).

Final Demo Video:

This week we finished designing the game. We added a few things:
1) Different speed settings with a potentiometer
2) wheel /accelerometer for direction
3) multifunctional button for game start, input
4) radio to play different songs
5) high score list and play again options

Accelerometer without wheel attached

Drive Shaft connected to potentiometer for speed control

Final List of Project Features:

Random wall (track) movements

Accelerometer-based steering and interaction
-Sensor + ADC

Intro screen
-Scrolls title, credits (our names)

Multifunctional button
-Debouncing has been included so unwanted actions will not occur
-Button-start gameplay
-No need for keyboard-terminal interaction

Hi Score list
-keeps track of top 5 player's scores, initials
