For the final iteration, I improved the game play. I added a few additional elements, like peppers, that make the fish shrink. The goal is now more clear – to maintain your size (and not get too fat). Otherwise, the fish explodes.
I made the game full screen so it seems more arcade-like and the button starts the game. I also added a playful visual element to the explosion at the end… With a lot of shapes in the fish’s color and a few red ones (assumed to be blood).
I also constructed a box that fits over a laptop and allows the player to turn his/her laptop into an arcade game with a joystick and a physical button. I painted it blue to match the game’s color.
Below is a video of the game play!
