Teki – Collision Detection

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Until now we have implemented in our Android game, Teki almost everything what do we need to may play the game. We have the running Teki, the barriers, the controls, the score and the constantly accelerating game. Still it is not enough, because we can go trough the barriers. To be honest, it is not what we want. ๐Ÿ™‚

In this chapter we are going to implement the collision detection. This will detect, if Teki and barriers have met with each other. If this happens, then the game will finish.

When we open the game, then we can see only our heroine, Teki with the background. From user experience view it is not the best, because the users won’t know what they have to do. The Main Menu screen will solve this issue as well.

The Main Menu screen will contain the name of the game, the Play, the Username and the High score buttons.

Also on this screen can the user change the username, but about this we are going to talk in a later chapter.
