Ecstasy of Gold
Ecstasy Of Gold, like several of my other mobile games, is a pending project. Its theme is given by the western film The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, directed by Sergio Leone. The basic story of the film is the following: The “bad” one kills three bandits. The “ugly” is a suspected Mexican bandit. “Good” is a bounty hunter who left his accomplices tied up in the desert after a successful bounty scam. All three try to outwit each other to retrieve a buried military treasure.
The game focuses on the very last scene of the film, which takes place in Sad Hill Cemetery. After the cemetery scene, the game is titled by Ennio Morricone’s The Ecstasy of Gold song. Basically the game is meant to represent this situation that appears in the film, which more or less consists of the following: There are five coffins, one of them contains gold. The player who gets the gold and keeps it for one round wins. Each player has health, offensive/defensive power and assets. When a player collects all the tools (map, water, spade) they can open a coffin in which they either find gold or not. As another possible move, you can increase your health or attack another player, who will lose health if loses.
This game is currently suspended, the source code is available on GitHub and modifications and enhancements that make the app better are welcome.
