Cyber Arcade Games 2016

Type Fighter

Type Fighter is the first game that was created for Cyber Security Week at UWE Bristol. It is an 80's inspired arcade game designed for two players. One player must pilot the ship and fire the on board weapons, whilst the other player can activate various abilities by typing commands into the ship's console.

The team took various words and ideas associated with cyber security and turned them into unique abilities. For example, the systemscan.exe command will cause all the ships projectiles to home onto enemies, and antivirus.exe will activate explosive ammunition. The real question is; can you beat Type Fighter single handed?


To play Type Fighter on your computer, you can download the game here. The controls have been modified to allow the game to be played using just a keyboard, please see the readme file for details.
