This is a pair-programming assignment (i.e., you may work with one partner). You may discuss the assignment only with your partner or the instructor/grader.


This assignment's objectives are:


Reuse code from previous OpenNERO assignments to create a (fun) computer game.


  1. There should be at least two players - human vs. computer.
  2. The score of each player consists of how many crumbs the player consumed. The game should output the final score (at least).
  3. See Documentation instructions from previous assignments.


Submit your assignment on OAKS by the due date. Your submission must include:

  1. A file. This will contain all your files for this assignment. Hint: I should be able to unzip this, place it in my OpenNERO folder, and run your work (without any changes on my part).
  2. A README.txt file, which describes your experience (the nature of your game, which computer agent you chose to use (and why), what changes you made (specifically), what you learned, any ideas you have, anything that caused you difficulty). Make this easy to read and to the point. Avoid verboseness.


Your grade will be based on the elegance of your design, the quality of your documentation, and the accuracy and simplicity of your implementation. Also, on how well you followed the above instructions. Aim for simplicity and elegance. Design, design, design... before you implement.
