My game

my game is a really cool game where you get to paint the screen. you use arrow keys to move around, and there are 16 different colors you can choose from, including an eraser. I am almost done with the game, and even though it sounds simple, there are a lot of possibilities. I used one long if/then statement to control color switch.

Escape the desert platformer

Escape the desert platformer is my best game yet.

A little bouncy ball finds itself lost in the desert, and must navigate through a series of complicated floating rocks, crumbling platforms, and a drop into lava.  In the end the cute little bouncy ball finds its way back into civilization, only to find that the city is overrun with dinosaurs. There are six scene changes, including a game over screen. I included health, which is initially set to nine, and every time you fall into lava you lose a life. If you lose all nine lives then the scene switches to game over.

On the whole I think this is an awesome game, but it could be better if I had a little more time to work on it.

Outer Space Platformer

my game was called Outer Space Platformer. A little bouncy ball jumps through an outer space backdrop over lava. Then, when it reaches the end, which is marked by a little green flag, the ball is taken to the win screen, where huge letters say: “you won a donut mountain! and there is a donut mountain. the hardest part was making the rocks hard and getting the gravity right.

capstone project progress report


I have completed all the computer work for my mini project. the dragon will sit on my shoulder and stay there because of magnets hidden under the 3D printed talons and the fabric in the shoulder of my shirt.

there will also be a button marked  “the best part” which will activate the roar function using the makey makey.

I plan to ditch the “move head” function entirely.

My Capstone Project

My project is a small creature that can sit on your shoulder. It will roar using soundplant, and turn its head. Either a griffon, an owl, or a baby dragon. I haven’t decided yet.

I will need:

  • plastic tubing
  • repurposed stuffed animal*
  • 3D-printed talons, beak, and handle for the tube.*
  • sound effects from soundplant*
  • a small turbine to control the head.
  • 3D-printer
  • black filament
  • hot glue
  • computer

*I will provide, design, or program these myself.

This is a link to a website where you can design stuff to 3D print. or keep them on the computer indefinitely, saying you’ll get around to printing them some other time.
