Color matching game built with flutter
A wise man once said, “The way to learn is to do”. The same thing applies to learning flutter or any programming languages in general. This game is a good project to do so.
A matching colors Flutter game! The goal is to reproduce the top right pattern on the 9 center squares with as few moves as possible.
THIS GAME IS STILL IN DEVELOPMENT!!
This app implements Didier Boelens’ approach to BLoC. The idea is to show data through widgets that react to a bloc’s Stream. In order to simplify state management, I’ve also implemented EventStates : blocs that emit a new widget’s state based on an event.
Multiplayer is handled by Firebase. A Firestore database stores all matches, queue and users information and all endpoints are Firebase Functions written in Typescript (project under directory functions).
When a player looks for a new match, he’s put in a FIFO queue and joins a match as soon as an opponent is found. A common target is chosen for them and whoever reaches the goal with the fewest amount of moves wins.
Players can leave a match at any time and reconnect later. Active matches are stored on the device thanks to sqflite.
Players can forfeit a match. This immediately triggers a win condition for the opponent.
- Move/Win/Challenge notification
Notifications are handled by Firebase Cloud Messaging. Every time a player is challenged, or an opponent plays a move, both players are notified.
If you want to use the online component, you can create a new Firebase project, create your own google-services.json and put it under android/app.
The app comes with a sqflite db of 500 combinations of target fields + game fields. A random combination is chosen.
