Lab Games

At night the lab is completely silent and all the computers are left on. It is dark, and each screen looks like the pixel of something exciting! The idea is to play games accross the lab with the computers all displaying one part of the game. Ideas include:

  • Battleships
  • Tag (finding the odd one out computer in time)
    • Powerups
  • Tetris??
  • Pong
  • Letters on each screen
  • picture across the screens.

Could be done with one computer hosting a JSP web site, each computer gets a ?comp=12 etc. The servlet could have a simple 2D array games could be programmed to.

UPDATE Made a simple game and tested it with Matthew! It was awesome.
