About this Project:

We initially were inspired by the original game, Fruit Ninja. We decided to replace the fruits with waste and have the game take place in the ocean. Later, we included more similar components from Fruit Ninja in order to match our overall theme and goal of our game. The challenge that Ocean Ninja addresses is the pollution of our oceans and it affecting the ecosystem. It is our responsibility to clean up the ocean so marine animals have a safe environment and will not go extinct. If we had more time and resources, I feel that we could have added more animation to make it feel smoother and less rigid. It can give people more time and make the game easier

More About this Project

Ocean Ninja is based off of the game Fruit Ninja, but instead of cutting fruit you will be collecting garbage with your mouse or finger by sliding it on the screen. While collecting garbage you need to avoid swiping up a fish as it will give you a strike, three strikes and you’re out. Do your best to avoid fishes and collect the most garbage!

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Founder / Educator at AusomeTech — Emoti-Con Judge
This game was SO MUCH fun to play. I love the sound effects, the challenge level was perfect – not too hard, not too easy, and I found myself playing multiple times to see if I can outdo my score. But more importantly, the message that this game sends is a message we all need to remember. We have to protect our oceans and the life that lives there. We need to take care of our earth and not pollute. Such an awesome message delivered in a really fun game format. Great Job!

👏 Technology Consultant at Ernst & Young — Emoti-Con Judge
I think the project has great potential and is an interactive way to address climate and environmental issues. I think the students can continue to expand on the educational aspect of the game to keep it engaging and exciting such as animals facts, competitions with points or rewards, or a communication board to let users meet up for in-person beach cleans! I love this idea and think the potential is endless. The graphics are great and the messaging behind the app is clear, nice job!
