Those who finish early may start thinking about our next, much bigger, game project, which will take many weeks to complete. Students will be designing their own computer games. Although there are many types of computer games, the type of game students will be creating is one in which a sprite is to touch something (or things), or to avoid something (or things), or a combination of both.
To plan the game, the following questions need to be answered.
1. Where does the game take place?
2. Who is the main player character? What will the sprite look like?
3. What is the story in the game? What problem is being solved, or what goal is met by the player?
4. What does the player sprite want to touch? Another sprite? Or colour? Or object? What happens when the player touches it?
5. What does the player sprite want to avoid touching? What happens when it touches it?
6. How does the player win? What happens when the player wins?
Before any coding starts, the planning needs to be complete!
