Paper, Scissors, Rock by  Max Liggins and Nick Coetzee

The game we choose to build was “Paper Scissors Rock using random number generating to decide what the computer chooses at the same time as the player chooses their option. Once we had learnt these fundamental steps to launching a game onto the Google Play store the goal is to build better and better games until we can launch games that people like enough to pay a small fee to download onto their android devices.

1st Place: Howick College

Totara Park Riding for the Disabled is one of the 55 groups that are affiliated to NZRDA, a charitable organisation that provides therapy, education, sport and recreation for children and adults with disabilities, through the riding and care of purpose trained horses. Their old website was about to be taken down so they would like to take the opportunity to create a brand new website which looks modern and is responsive to different devices.
