The mini-game Arkanoid Attack was created as an individual school assignment to increase the knowledge on console development. The game runs fluently on the PS4 in my own custom framework.
At the beginning of the project I was allowed to choose between the PS3, PS4 and PS Vita as a target platform. With no experience in console programming, I decided to develop a game for the PS4 because it is the most recent console.
As a challenge I decided to create the framework from scratch instead of using sample code as the base. It took me a good week before the first triangle appeared in a satisfactory manner. From that milestone on the motivation, product and scope increased rapidly.
