MiniBattle

Mobile Game Dev


MiniBattle is a Worms-inspired cell phone game created by Chris Moolenschot for his computer science honours project in 2006. My contribution to the project included creating animated 2D sprites from 3D models I built in 3ds Max. I also used the 3D models for a high-res promotional poster intended to promote the project.

Because of the limitations on memory and rendering inherent in cell phone technology, I had to be economical with image sizes and optimization. Editing and optimizing the sprites in Photoshop was pivotal, and I found myself doing plenty of pixel editing in order to get the 16 by 16 pixel character to stand out on the screen.
