Ok so i didn’t understand the blogging assignment until now- here we go:

The PacMan game i was talking about can be accessed at this website. I’m assuming with our limited experience on Squeaker, we wouldn’t be able to fully recreate the game, we could possibly adjust it something within our capabilities. There will be a start point (x,y coordinates) and a return point (the same x,y coordinates) but the game will end when all obstacles are…well, eaten. This can be determined when the scoreboard reaches a number that accords with all of the possible points being earned. We could do multiple simple levels, or 1 solidly defined level.

I will use the ellipse object in the supplies box, its ideal because it looks like pac man. We can make its heading be determined by our control by making it controlled by a steering wheel- just like our first day with Squeaker driving homemade cars. Then we will put little dots that when contacted with the color of the ellipse they disappear and register on the scoreboard. We will also have other ellipses of differing colors bouncing off walls or other obstacles that, when contacted with the yellow ellipse controlled by the player, stop the turn, restart the game and the ellipse returns to the center with 0 points. If all points are collected, a script saying “Player 1 Wins” will appear and maybe a new level will appear.

    Sounds like a great idea…sort of like Drew’s project…you guys could talk to each other and share ideas….The toughest part will be programming Pacman so that he can’t just walk through a wall if you try making him….same with the bad guys.
