Pinball Energy Challenge

A pinball puzzler

Transfer energy to open the gate

Place and wire components

See where your energy went

Pinball Energy Challenge is an educational puzzle game for iPad about conservation and transformation of energy. Players hook together spinning power generators, hair driers, solar panels, flash bulbs, and all manner of kooky devices, and then launch a pinball through their creation to see how they all interact.

This project was developed in Adobe Flash for HTML5, and then packaged as an iOS app. We developed a custom physics engine as well as a robust level editor for the game designer to use. I defined the art direction, collaborated with an illustrator on the art assets, designed the UX and UI, and even did a little sound design to get us out of a pinch.
