ShellsMP

Play shells game with your friends

This program gives an opportunity to play a Shells game with your friends. Only multiplayer mode is supported, so you will need 2 devices: one for thimblerigger and another one for the victim. Devices should be connected to the same WiFi network segment.

If you are thimblerigger - start the game, wait for the victim, put ball and few cups then move cups.

If you are victim - connect the game, watch and guess.

Source code gives an example how following techonologies can be used:

  • Android NSD for device discovery
  • OpenGL text rendering
  • OpenGL ball rendering
  • OpenGL shadows rendering
  • JS-Collider: Java network framework JS-Collider
