3DHappyFrog for Harmattan (Qt3D/Qml+Bullet physics engine) – Like a 3D Angry Birds

Think of Angry Birds. Now think of that in 3D. Change the bird to a frog. And he’s happy.

Now put it on your MeeGo-Harmattan Qt phone and you have a game demoed below called,

“3D HappyFrog”.

It’s a Qt3D/QML Bullet Physics engine game. You have your catapult and your building block structures that can be destroyed if correctly hit. Unlike the flat Angry Birds style this is in 3D.

You can play the game with touch controls entirely or with some accelerometer/sensor input (tilt back to angle your slingshot).

This app is developed by using Qt3D/QML integrated with Bullet 3D physics engine.Due to this game is 3D-game,There are 2 types of play,one is controlled by user(you can regard N950/N9 as game controller) ,another is based on sensor.More details,pls watch recorded video.The explosion effect looks like not bad.As you see,I deploy this game on N950,Basically,The performance and some details are not as good as expected.Still Some bugs are needed to be fixed and lots of room to improve,such as better 3D model, effect,audio,optimization on painting to boost FPS.On the other hand,This app is being built on Qt3D-1.0-tp1.which is not blown release(Qt3D is still in-progress).That’s why I’ve not released the debian package and source code yet.So stay tuned.

Thanks to li hui for the tip!
