The primary objectives of the ping pong players are to prevent the castles from being blown up and to kill all the penguins. Penguins are killed when they are hit by a ping pong ball, when they fall into a hole in the icey floor, and when they are hit by the blast of an exploding bomb. Holes in the floor are created by repeatedly hitting the same spot with a ping pong ball, and bombs can be set off by hitting them with a ping pong ball.
During this project I was the programming lead, dividing the tasks and ensuring they are done in time. I was also responsible for implementing a part of the gameplay and getting the ping pong table to work.
Before this project I had never extensively worked with an Arduino and other electronics before, I have learned a lot during this project and it was a lot of fun to work with.
