Phone Fight v1.0 ---------------- Phone Fight is a prototype sword-fighting game for two players equipped with Nokia N95 or compatible phones. It makes use of the accelerometer within the phones to detect simulated sword slashes and blocks, and Bluetooth to communicate those moves between the phones and to notify the winning player of victory. It was originally conceived and coded (hacked) in about twelve hours by a team from lastminute.com labs over the course of the Over the Air event held at Imperial College in London on April 4th-5th 2008. After much procrastination, it was re-hashed into a useable, playable and above all installable version towards the end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009 It is implemented using Python for S60. http://labs.lastminute.com/phonefight http://www.overtheair.org http://wiki.opensource.nokia.com/projects/PyS60 http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.php/S60_Sensor_API Installation ------------ Please see the INSTALL file for detailed instructions on how to install Phone Fight. How to play ----------- Please see the file PLAYING for instructions on how to play the game. Safety ------ Remember to stand well back from your opponent when playing. We know to our cost that it is easy to damage your phone in the heat of battle. It may also be wise to use a wrist strap. lastminute.com are not liable for any damage you cause to yourself, your phone or anything else when playing Phone Fight. Compatibility ------------ The game has been tested on the original Nokia N95 and the 8GB model and is known to work (mostly). It may work on similar models such as the N82. Known limitations ----------------- Bugs: - Both players should give the same answer to the question 'Play again? Yes/No'. Failure to do so will confuse the phone that answered "yes" to the question, and you will have to re-start Phone Fight in order to continue playing - There probably plenty of other bugs. Beware. Gameplay inadequacies: - The program knows about re-orientation of the phone a short while after it happens, leading to unexpectedly (un)successful attacks. - Each player is essentially defending all the time (either horizontally or vertically). - This isn't really a very good simulation of a sword fight. It's still fun, though. Potential improvements ---------------------- As well as fixing the above, the following are areas which could be improved - Incorporate GPS, camera and network functionality...
