Siquijor: An Evasion-Focused Danmaku Style Top-Down Shooter Implemented on Touhou Danmakufu with Pattern Recognition Correlation

Abstract / Excerpt:

In this study, we have developed an evasion-focused danmaku top-down shooter using Touhou Danmakufu. The tool was selected for its ability to aid in rapid development of top-down shooters as a whole. This application was then used in an attempt to correlate the pattern recognition IQ of participants in relation to their score. A framework was developed during development to facilitate rapid development that, in hindsight, involved using the basic principles of Agile Software Development. Some problems that were encountered during development include an untranslated, undocumented error message along with functions with names barely indicative of their function. The player testing portion of the study has shown that pattern recognition scores have a weak impact on game performance but for individual stages, some exhibited a strong to very strong positive correlation
