Abstract: The exergames became very popular in last years because of the appearance of the motion controllers with accelerometers but also because this type of games promotes the physical exercise. Msquash is a 3D game that simulates a squash field where the player can play using the Move controller. The game was developed with the objective to create an exergame using the Move motion controller and also to compare the Move controller performance with Wii Remote. Thus the idea is providing a fun and engaging experience for players while they do physical exercise also. The Msquash game was developed using OGRE and OpenCV libraries with Playstation Move controller and Playstation eye camera. This paper presents a brief description of the Msquash game and some results based on tests performed with users to evaluate the interaction method used and its gameplay.
