Blog Week 6: The End of Busy Noon


I’ve now just realised that I never actually explained what high noon was.

As you can tell by the name it’s set in western times and the objective is to shoot the other player before they shoot you, just like an old western high noon duel hence the name and there’s a few obstacles in the way like the cactuses you can see in the image above.

So I ended up doing the classic Damien move where I left what I had to do till the last few days and what I had to do just happened to be a pretty big part of the assignment I was tasked with making the single player solo well I wasn’t really tasked really I volunteered to do it because I had felt like I hadn’t really done anything up to that point which I hadn’t.

I was really struggling for ideas on how to adapt the arcade game into a single player game but I eventually came up with an idea and that was to make it more of a practice type game where you go to shoot bottles and targets to help train your aim for the main game.
