Purpose

This assignment focuses on:

  • developing games using MIT's Scratch;
  • paper prototyping and user interface design;
  • iterative game refinement; and
  • using effective skills and strategies for working collaboratively.

This is a group assignment. You may discuss the assignment only with your group or the instructor.

Assignment

Develop a computer game using MIT's Scratch.

Details

Implement the game design you presented in class using Scratch. Remember, 2 hours of design can save you 20 hours of coding... So, further refine your design on paper (do storyboards, play the game using different pieces of paper, etc.) - you will not regret it.

Submission

Submit your assignment via WebCT. Be prepared to demo your game to the rest of the class.

The submission should contain:

  1. Your Scratch project (i.e., nameOfYourGame.sb)
  2. The game design document from the previous assignment (i.e., nameOfYourGame.pdf). Feel free to update it to reflect the latest details about your game. It should be in PDF format.

To receive full credit, you must include your names, date, class, and information on how to use your program and instructions on how to play the game in the Scratch Project Info window:

Grading

Your grade will be based on how well you followed the above instructions, and the depth/quality of your work. Also, each team member will get to evaluate their own contribution and that of others within the group.
