Stef Pieters, Banana Flip

bachelor digital design and development

We made a game called Banana Flip for our bachelor project. Players control an inflatable banana that they can move up and down to control the flipper within a pinball machine. The goal is to progress through the game by using the banana to hit targets like a dangerous crocodile and overcome obstacles within the machine to find a hidden gem. Banana Flip is designed for kids between the ages of 6 and 12 and is meant to be both fun and educational. One of the key learning objectives of the game is to introduce children to the concept of virtual pinball games. We made this possible with Arduino and Phaser.js. Overall, this game is a great way for kids to learn about what’s possible to make with technology, see some entertaining game design, and have fun while doing it!
