Polly-B-Gone is a 3D physics platform game that tells the story of a plucky wheeled robot named Polly, who has been imprisoned by the nefarious Dr. Nurbs in his laboratory. Polly must overcome a series of increasingly-elaborate obstacles to escape and regain her freedom. Polly was my entry in the 2008 CS 248 video game competition, and she won the grand prize!


Polly-B-Gone is currently available as a binary only for Mac OS X:

It has only been tested on 10.5 (Leopard), but it probably works on other versions. For other platforms, you’ll need to build from source and make modifications as necessary.



The entire game world for Polly-B-Gone is specified as an XML file. You can edit world.xml to create new levels, new puzzles, and even change the music, textures and lighting! See the wiki for details.
