London Borough Smackdown


A Top Trumps style game using crime statistics for London Boroughs. The app is a simple webapp designed to be played on mobile devices (iphone, ipad and android).

Ideas for taking this project forward

  • Add a screen for when the game has been won (or lost)
  • Add some dodgy London cockney music
  • Complete the graphics for all screens.
  • Wrap it up with PhoneGap and deploy to app store
  • Add multi-player support
  • Make fully offline

Estimated costs for taking this project forward
