Coding A Video Game!

Brainstorm: Think of everything you like about certain Video Games?

Become a Reverse Engineer!

Meaning--extract knowledge or design information from an existing video game and think about what math might be involved in making this game work??

Your job is to figure out how it works. What type of characters make up the game? How do they move? What happens? How do they change?

After Playing the Game below: try to answer those questions and this one- How does the unicorn move precisely?

Where's it At?

  • How can you describe where the dragon is?
  • What if the person you’re describing it to can’t see your screen?
  • We can use a coordinate grid to help!
  • Identify the (x,y) coordinates! How does it change or move? Describe in detail.
