This weekend was my third ludum dare, at this moment i still have 5h40, but i give up, i am just not in the mood anymore for it…
So, instead of just throwing all the work, let me explain what i wanted to do, maybe one of you will be interested and may want to continue/finish it, i am not sure for myself, but i may trop to finish it myself later if the project interest some ou you.
With the theme “Beneath the Surface”, i wanted to make something different, and since i currently work on Android theses times, i wanted to do something with it and his sensors.
So the concept is simple:
When you start the application, it will locate your position (latitude, longitude and mainly altitude) with the GPS sensor, and at each tap on the screen, it will locate your new position and compare your current altitude with the starting one. If you have reached an altitude below 200 meter of the initial position (or the sea level), you win, and you can submit your path and “score” online.
For the technical part every tap will be stored in a SQLite database, and if you succeed, this database will be sent to a server with some id to recognize you, to permit to draw a path on google map or another for example.
Actually almost everything was done for the android and sqlite part, only the identification part missed and maybe some better design choice. for the web part, everything was working for the database part, and only the display and some interaction with google map or other was missing.
I am not sure if i explain well what i wanted (or if my text is correct, if you want to correct me don’t hesitate), but this is what i wanted to do.
Everything is available on dropbox here (the web part and an eclipse project)
I hope some of you will like the idea.
Good luck to all of you for the end of the compo and the jam !
