Game Mechanics

Here’s how to play →

  • Tap the screen to make the bird/ship/doge flap his wings and ascend.
  • Release the screen to let it descend.
  • Navigate it through openings between obstacles.
  • Avoid collisions with obstacles to keep the game going.
  • Try to achieve the highest score by covering the longest distance.

Technical Overview

The game has been built using Jetpack Compose in Android.

Pipes Generation and Movement

  • Pipe Spawning → Pipes are generated at regular intervals to create gaps for the player to navigate.
  • Pipe Movement → Pipes move horizontally from right to left, simulating the game’s forward motion.
  • Collision Detection → The game checks for collisions between the bird and pipes, triggering game over when a collision occurs.

Game Screen and Composables

  • Bird Composable → The player-controlled bird/ship/doge is implemented as a Composable, responding to user input for flying and gravity for falling.
  • Score Display → A score counter keeps track of the player’s progress and is displayed on the screen.
  • Background → The game’s background sets the visual atmosphere and can change based on the theme.

These technical components work in tandem to provide an engaging and challenging gaming experience in Flappy Musketeer. For a deeper dive into the code implementation, please refer to the provided source code.
