XNA Windows Phone Theme Library


Danny, one of our First Year students, is hard at work on his First Year programming coursework. This year the game is “Sweepy Cleaner”, an XNA game where you get to control a robot vacuum. I’ve even bought the domain name.

Danny made a version of Evil Squash last year for Windows Phone and he is now building a Sweepy Cleaner for the phone as well. And he has discovered that:

  1. It is nice if a game has the same colour theme as the ones set for the phone by the user.
  2. It is hard to get these colours from an XNA game

So he has written a little bit of code to get this information into a game, and released it as a dll that any XNA developer can use. Which is nice. You can find it here.
