Game difficulty is tailored in real-time based on the players stats as they are recorded, increasing/decreasing several game factors based on the player. With the end goal of improved enjoyment & retention via consistently challenging gameplay for all skill levels. Our game in question is a simplified version of placement year work designed in collaboration with another student studying 3D Design (who is responsible for all art assets), with all code developed by myself and adapted for this research project.
