Group Project – Whack A Mole

The group projects are in full swing. A small project for the semeseter, with three man team, A Game Design, A Programer and Artist, the artist is myself, I must not forget our Audio guy, he is a busy chap.  The game the is doing a Whack a Mole for the hand devices.  Artwork is being created with illustrator and animated in Flash.
The Menu Screen for the game has reused assets that have been created and this second version mock-up I do like, I need to be smart with the reusable assets as time is not my friend.
