“Higher/Lower”-style card game (Jave ME)

Overview/Features:

  • Implementation of the Higher/Lower style game from shows such as Play Your Cards Right and Card Sharks
  • Custom comparator for high score list
  • Persistent data storage on the mobile

Description:

Those who have seen “Play Your Cards Right” or “Card Sharks” will know how to play this game. Given a card, will the next card be higher or lower? It’s essentially a coin toss but the odds are not stuck at 50:50, instead they change depending on whether the first card was a low card (such as 2 or 3) or a high card (such as Queen or King).

This is an implementation of this game for mobiles using Java ME. It scored a 98% for the Mobile Applications and Systems module during my masters degree and I was also asked for permission for it to be used on display for things such as open days for the prospective mobile-based undergraduate students.

New game, but not a great starting card. As per the tv show rules, I'm allowed to change the first card once (and only the first card)

A better card, and note the lack of the change option now.

(And eventually we get to) game over again. Since I have a non-zero score, I can add my name to the high score list.
