19-yr technology wizard develops Android game
Srinagar, Apr 24: A 19-year-old technology wizard has developed an Android game based on the basic principles of Physics.
The game ‘Unending Pursue’ developed by Fazil Mir son of Riyaz Ahmad Mir of Indira Nagar here is registered with search engine Google and has achieved a 4.4 rating on the World Wide Web.
“The game is fully Physics based. There are objects scattered here and there and a character namely Looby. You just have to place objects in such a manner so that Looby finds a way out,” reads the game description on Google.
The 7.4 megabytes ‘Brain and Puzzle’ game witnessed over 100 installs on Android cell phones since April 20 across the World.
“I am very enthusiastic about game. This is just a beginning,” Fazil told Greater Kashmir. “In future, I want to develop 3D war games.”
Son of a property dealer, Fazil said he had no money initially to launch the game. “But my father helped me buy software through which I developed this game,” he said. Just 19, the game developer is pursuing a course in Software Engineering and is doing a job in a software company that constructs and develops IT infrastructure in J&K.
Fazil has developed the game in ‘Corona’ – a software development kit that, he said, cost him Rs 20,000. “My father helped to buy the software online,” he said.
With the use of Corona software, Fazil could create graphics and animation through codes. “I first opened an account in Google Developer. Then I bought some graphics from the Web and made others in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Rest of the game has been developed through coding language Lua,” the 19-yr boy said.
“I came to know about Corona five years ago. I downloaded its free version and started practicing. Unending Pursue is the Output.”
Fazil has studied commerce at ten plus two level, “But my interest to game developing was innate.” “Now I am planning to work on bigger platforms like 3D Max. My next sojourn would be a computer game,” he said. “The only motive of my life is to win, to win and to win...,” reads his biography on social networking site Facebook.
In Kashmir, the trend of development of websites, games and applications among youth is gaining popularity. Recently, a 23-year-old software engineer Mehvish Mushtaq developed an Android application ‘Dial Kashmir’ that contains over 500 contacts of government and private departments.
