Don't Wake Grandpa is a hectic and lighthearted game, and was our first experience with mobile development. We were tasked with creating a game which used a mobile devices tilt, swipe, and tap functions.

Core gameplay consists of balancing the banana on grandpa's head as he sleeps, which is done by tilting the device. Difficulty increases as in addition to balancing the banana, grandma gets mad and starts throwing various objects at grandpa, which the player must swipe away before they hit him. On top of all that, Whiskers the Cat shows up and players must tap him repeatedly to stop him from trying to scratch our sleepy friend.

My responsibilities on this project were development of the initial concept, documentation, asset creation and implementation, and of course testing and quality assurance.
