Exclamation Immediate Help Needed - Interactive Animation - 04-11-2011, 10:32 AM

Dear forumers,

am new here, need advices and help from you guys. I have an assignment given, which must be hand to my lecture before the next monday. I need to code an interactive animation or a simple game which meet the following requirements:

1. has at least 3 moving objects with at least one of the objects exhibit subpart movement.

2. There must be at least 2 events the animation responds to, excluding "my first method when the world starts. One of the event handlers must incorporate at least one parameter.

3. Create an additional method with parameter(s) that must be called at least twice with different argument(s).

4. Use loop or while

5. Use if/else

6. Use 2 different built-in function.

until now, i still have no idea what kind of animation or game i should begin with. Anyone can guide me through? thanks a lot

This sounds like a final project to me. The community can help you, but we won't do your homework for you. Post a world with your best effort to complete the project, then ask for help with specific subjects.

Monsters dancing (zombies, skeletons, mummies, etc).

There, you have an idea. Go do something with it.

Try go to the "Share Worlds" forum here in the Alice forums to see if you can get any ideas. The simplest interactive thing I can think of is creating a math game where the user has to answer questions like "What is 2 x 3?"


Projects
-Escape the Kitchen
-That ninja animation
-Hill Collision

Upcoming Projects
-Some penguin adventure game?

thanks x2495iiii and rueben,

i got an idea.

"the birds are attacking our city. shoot them down before they hurt the citizen. Be careful not to shoot the citizens...."

is that ok?

i can use loop to make the birds flying in the sky.
and i meet the If/Else requirement where the game will be stopped if any of the citizens get shooted.

now my problem is that, how to code the "gun" to do shooting?

Great idea.

There are a variety of ways to do something like this. Post your world with your best shot at it, and we'll guide you from there.

If you want to make it simple, you can just make it so that clicking the birds will cause them to die.
