Fantasy Combat Game
• Develop classes from program requirements
• Implement characters using polymorphism
• Implement a menu to allow the user to test the characters
In this project, we will develop a fantasy combat game. This is going to be part 1
of the game development in which we develop the characters and a menu to
test the characters.
Our game universe contains Vampire, Barbarian, Blue Men, Medusa, and Harry
Potter. Each character has attributes of attack, defense, armor, and strength
The table containing the attributes data is shown below.
Note: “1d12” means rolling one 12-sided die, and “2d6” means rolling 2 6-sided
dice, etc.
Type Attack Defense Armor Strength Points
1d12 1d6* Charm 1 18
2d6 2d6 0 12
Blue Men3
2d10 3d6 3 12 *Mob
2d6* Glare 1d6 3 8
Harry Potter5
2d6 2d6 0 10/20*Hogwarts
The characters also have their own characteristics as well as special abilities:
Type Characterstics Special Abilities
Vampire Suave, debonair, but vicious and
surprisingly resilient.
Charm: Vampires can charm an
opponent into not attacking. For a
given attack there is a 50%
chance that their opponent does
not actually attack them.
Barbarian Think Conan or Hercules from the
movies. Big sword, big muscles,
bare torso.
Blue Men They are small, 6 inch tall, but fast
and tough. They are hard to hit so
they can take some damage. They
can also do a LOT of damage
when they crawl inside enemies’
armor or clothing.
Mob: Blue Men are actually a
swarm of small individuals. For
every 4 points of damage, they
lose one defense die. For
example, if they have a strength
of 8, they would have 2d6 for
Medusa Scrawny lady with snakes for hair
which helps her during combat.
Just don’t look at her!
Glare: If a Medusa rolls a 12
when attacking then the target
instantly gets turned into stone
and Medusa wins! If Medusa uses
Glare on Harry Potter on his first
life, then Harry Potter comes back
to life.
Harry Potter is a wizard. Hogwarts: If Harry Potter’s
strength reaches 0 or below, he
immediately recovers and his
total strength becomes 20. If he
were to die again, then he’s dead.
1. If Medusa uses “glare” on Harry Potter on his first life, then Harry Potter
comes back to life after using “hogwarts”.
2. If the Vampire’s “charm” ability activates when Medusa uses “glare”, the
Vampire’s charm trumps Medusa’s glare.
3. The sample characters are unbalanced intentionally. This will help you in
debugging your program! Some will win a lot, while others won’t.
Each combat between 2 characters ends when one of the characters die.
Each round consists of two attacks, one for each character. For each attack,
attacker and defender both generate dice rolls. The type and number of dice is
listed above in the table.
The actual damage inflicted from the attacker onto the defender is calculated
as follows:
Damage = attacker’s roll – defender’s roll – defender’s armor
Then the value of that damage is subtracted from the defender’s strength
Example: character A attacks with dice roll of: 8 10, which means it has an
attack of 18, and character B defends with dice roll of 5 6, which means it has
defense of 11, character B also has an armor of 3. So the actual damage
inflicted from A to B is 18 – 11 – 3 = 4.
If character B has strength point of 8 during that round, the new strength point
would be 8 – 4 = 4, which means next round B will have strength point of 4.
If character B has strength point of 3 during that round, the new strength point
would be 3 – 4 = -1, which means character B dies.
Note: Deciding who starts attacking is your own design decision.
The program should contain a Character base class. The base class should be
an abstract class. All the characters should have their own subclass that
inherits from the Character class.
Each class should only have its own information or data. For example, when A
attacks B, the program should call A’s attack function, which should return the
damage attacked. Then O2’s defense function will take the damage attacked,
and calculate the actual damage inflicted, and apply that damage to the
defender’s strength points.
You can add whatever you want to the parent class but it must include an attack
function and defense function. Also, the subclass should not have dependencies
on which type of character the attacker is. For example, It is not an acceptable
solution to have an external function check if the attacker is Medusa if a 12 is
rolled; the special traits must happen within the character classes themselves.
To be able to test and play the game, write a menu. The menu should display
five characters by their names, and prompt the user to select two characters to
fight one another. You must account for two characters of the same type, so
Vampire can fight Vampire, etc. For each round, display the results of each
round on the screen so you and your grading TA can verify that calculations are
correct and the game is functioning properly.
The following information must be displayed for each attack:
1. Attacker type.
2. Defender type, armor, strength point.
3. The attacker’s attack dice roll.
4. The defender’s defend dice roll.
5. The total inflicted damage calculation.
6. The defender’s updated strength point amount after subtracting damage.
After the combat is over, ask users to:
1. Play again
2. Exit the game
Note: This is the first part of the larger project, please do not add any
characters of your own.
Reflection Document
The requirements for the reflection document have been specified in the Project
1 document.
Make sure your document has design descriptions, test tables, and
reflections. The reflections include: changes in design, problems encountered,
and how you solve those problems. Additionally, the reflection document should
include a class hierarchy diagram.
Create your design before coding anything! You should even be outlining your
test plan. The grading is set up to encourage you to develop your program
incrementally! Start with the base and Barbarian classes. Create the testing
program that runs sample combats for you to test your code. How do you
handle random die rolls when testing your code? At each step of the coding
process, make notes about what worked, what has been changed from your
design. Doing this will make writing the reflections easier.
Note: this project involves a lot of details and many are not specified as
requirements here. In this case, they will be your design decisions. You can
include these decisions in your reflection documents. If you are still not sure
whether something is allowed or which is the proper way to go, post your
question on Piazza and TAs will clarify it.
