Topic / Summary

The goal of this year's software development project at the SEDA department, will be the development of the retro-game "PAC-MAN", which we rebranded as "Hungry Ball" for the course of this project. The game will be written in Java and the complexity of the functional specification will differ between bachelor and master students, who work in their respective groups of 3. Besides the development part, the students will also need create a UML diagram of their software after it has been implemented in oder to get a clear understanding of the relation between code and UML diagram. The project will be implemented iteratively in individual tasks which are given to the participants every two weeks.


Development Goal

  • Implementation of a PAC-MAN varient named "Hungry Ball".
    • Bachelor and master students use a slightly different functional specification w.r.t. the multiplayer implementation
    • Bachelor students: Local multiplayer where two people use the same keyboard on the same PC
    • Master students: Remote multiplayer where two people use different PCs connected via local network
  • Development context
    • Programming language: Java
    • GUI framework: Swing
    • Development environment (IDE): IntelliJ IDEA (Note: Students can get free ultimate licenses)
  • Version-management: GIT via Gitlab
    • Every group will get a SEDA gitlab webspace, where their GIT repository will be hosted and shared between the group's members.
