Abstract This thesis describes the design and implementation of a fast-paced 2D action game called Golfotron. The main goal of the game is to provide players with an enjoyable experience through its unique game mechanics and visual design. The thesis starts with an introduction to the action game genre, moving on to game design, implementation, and visual design.
Additionally, there is an analysis of similar games, from which Golfotron drew its inspiration, within the chapters. The game was playtested on potential players to find problems and assess the sleekness of the game.
