POLLY-B-GONE is a 3D physics platform game that tells the story of a plucky
wheeled robot named Polly, who has been imprisoned by the nefarious Dr. Nurbs in
his laboratory. Polly must overcome a series of increasingly-elaborate obstacles
to escape and regain her freedom.
Good news, everyone! Polly won the grand prize in the 10th
annual CS 248 video
POLLY-B-GONE is currently available only for Mac OS X. It has only been
tested on 10.5 (Leopard), but it probably works on earlier versions. Let me know
if you have any problems, and I'll do my best to fix it promptly.
If anyone wants to port the game to Windows, Linux, or other
platforms (or make other modifications!), you can download the source
below. It should be relatively straightforward since the game uses
OpenGL and SDL.
Did you know that the entire game world for POLLY-B-GONE is specified as an
XML file that's distributed with the application? You can edit
to create new levels, new puzzles, and even change the
music, textures and lighting! See the full
