I must know
if you are using a partner, and who the partner is.
Working with a partner means you should meet together when writing
If you choose to work alone, you may talk to other students in the
course about your design and for ideas, but you are to write the complete
Alice program by yourself.
You may receive help from the Professor, UTA's or TA.
These parts must be done in order! (Part 1 first, then Part 2, then Part 3).
The Problem: Requirements
- Create an interactive game or interactive story. That means
you must have events!
- Instructions for playing the game or navigating the story
must be displayed in the world at the beginning.
- Your program should be
well designed and use many functions and/or methods, each with a designated
purpose and a comment.
- You must have at least one scene change and one camera change other
than the scene change.
- You must use either an array or list somewhere in your world. If it
doesn't fit in with what you plan to do, then use it as an intro or finish
to your world.
- The presentation must be nice. 20% of Part 2's grade is on presentation.
- For this assignment, you will turn in your world on Blackboard and
have an html page describing your world (how to play the game or
navigate the story) linked to from your CompSci 4 web page.
- All worlds must use appropriate material. No profanity, nudity,
strong violence or anything else inappropriate.
- If you use music, your world will get large fast. Only use
small clips from songs and play them over and over if you want. Note
that you should not use a clip longer than 30 seconds as that is a
copyright violation. You can use
audacity to clip a sound if you want. You could also record short
sounds if you want. This is optional.
