Abstract This work deals with computer games, which mainly use sound as a gameplay element, so called „Audio Games“. As part of the seminar, an audio game called Shadowboy was created. It is a „2D Jump ’n’ Run“ game, in which the player can control parts of the enviroment and perform special attacks, with the help of sounds, that are beiing picked up via a microphone. The first part of the thesis deals with the definition of games, the development of the first video games and their difference to audio games. The second part of the work focuses on the development of Shadowboy. Finally, improvements, which could be implemented in the future, are discussed at the end of the thesis.
