What’s After the First?

…Second. And third and fourth and fifth. Yes, fifth. By some whatever-twist-of-fate (haha) the 10 required games were reduced to five. wooot. XD Now I hope that makes our work less difficult.

Yesterday,  Doc Caro asked us to present to him our concept for the remaining for games that we would be developing. For our second game (which we named Shark Attack), the math lesson would be the four basic operations with 2-3 digit numbers. The shark (which is several miles away from the shore) is hungry and bothered by math problems (ex. 10+35, 10*15, etc) and to stop him from reaching the shore and eating you (okay, morbid 😐 but that’s why you have to stop him. hehe) you have to toss the fish (if it contains the correct answer) into his mouth. The fish sometimes doesn’t have the correct answer and if you toss that fish in, the shark moves closer. >.< The game ends when the shark reaches the shore and eats you (that is, after several wrong answers) or when the shark becomes full and satisfied (after several correct answers). There’s a time limit to answer a question and if you weren’t able to correctly answer a question within the given time that is considered a wrong answer.

It’s all rather vague here but hopefully  it would all clear up once we post the mock screens .  (to be cntd. Rose Ann is insisting that I attend Spin The Web XD )
