Traffic Polava was one of my first year projects at university. The game is a top-down “shoot ’em up” with a parallaxing background, basic power-ups and waves of enemies.

The Game

The aim of the game is to get to work as quickly as possible, as recklessly as possible. To do so, the player must make their way through randomized/progressive waves of traffic, collecting weapon and speed power-ups as they go. The player can attack other vehicles by either smashing them off the road, or shooting them.


The source code/solution and debug build can be found HERE. This game requires the VS2008 instruction set or higher to be built.
