Ball murder is a fairly gore game, where you defend your home from invading enemies with a giant ball. The only way to stop the invaders is to roll over them.

Our idea was to use a phones gyroscope in a mobile game. Our game shaped up to be Ball Murder, where you control a ball by tilting your phone and making use of the gyroscope it has. In order to accommodate older Windows Phones we also built a joystick into the game to control the ball if the phone doesn't support gyroscope. This was also built as a failsafe if we didn't have enough time to finis the gyroscope, which unfortunately was the case.
Main motivation for our group was to create something new, and especially for a mobile phone. We wanted to create a game, because it seemed to be a good platform to try out the gyroscope of newer Windows Phones. We chose Windows Phone as our platform since it seemed easier to distribute than a game designed for computer users.
