The pilons from team 5225A presents Bowl-Fighting, a thrilling and action-packed game that provides an interesting challenge! 64 red and blue bowls are scattered in various places around the field and its up to the alliances to score them on pillars or side goals. There is a blue and red ball which can increase your score immensely. The game gets interesting when four very different bowls come in to play during the last 30 seconds! The team that scores the most bowls win. Our video incorporates 3D animation from Autodesk Maya, game pieces from Autodesk AutoCad, and 2D animation from Anime Studio.


There is nothing here.

I like the use of the bowls as scoring objects for two different purposes in this game, and I like the game design on the whole as it looks like it would be a very interesting game both to play and watch with the number of different field components available for robots to interact with. The animation generally looks nice, but the contrast between the 3D scene at the start and the end of the animation, and the 2D section in the middle of the animation for the rules doesn't work well in my opinion, and I think it may have looked better if the 2D section looked a bit more varied in terms of colour and shapes so there isn't so much of a contrast between the sections. The robots at the end of the animation look really good with the lighting and everything, and on the whole I think this is a really nice animation. Good Luck!
