Made the HARD way!
Bounceback wasn't created using a third-party game engine which does the majority of the hard work for you. Our team wrote their own engine and tools for the PSP from scratch using C++ (the industry standard programming language).
Characters and Story
Our main character is 'Lanos' a bouncy ball made of moon rock who fears, after years of being left on a shelf, that he has lost his bounce!
He must find a way out the child's room, searching for 'Bounceables' in order to restore his bounce. Along the way Lanos will be introduced to a host of amazing characters with unique abilities to help him solve the puzzles so that he can collect all the Bounceables in a level.
The game sees Lanos travel through several unique themes before ending up bouncing
from the clouds, all the way back up home to the moon!
Praise and Awards
BounceBack was entered into the 2012 Game Republic Student Showcase and came away winning 3 out of 4 of the top awards:
- The Rockstar Award for Best Team
- The Sumo Digital Award for Best Game Design
- The Four Door Lemon Award for Best Technology
"This year’s Student Showcase was the biggest yet, with a very high standard of entries from all our educational partners. For Sheffield Hallam’s Steel Minions studio to win three first prize awards against such competition was an incredible achievement."
