Examples of labs and Programming Assignments (tentative):

Example Lab
A Pong game: use of mouse events and event handling, and use of control structures (if/else)
A modified Pong game later in the semester applying object-oriented programming to add multiple balls
To try out this example: Move the mouse inside To try out this example: Move the mouse inside


Example Lab/Assginment

A plarform game: use of control structures (if/else), keyboard events and event handling.
Problem-solving: How to make the platform scrolling continuously without making the platform infinitely long.

To try out this example: Click once inside, use LEFT and RIGHT arrow keys to move the character, and use SPACEBAR for jumping


Example Lab

tic-tac-toe: use of 2d array to model the game board, use of if-else statements to toggle players' turns

To try out this example: Click on the cell to place an "X" or "O".


Example Lab/Programming Assignment

3d drive-through fly-through: keyboard event handling, use of loops, multi-dimensional arrays, and 3d perspective concepts

To try out this example: Click once inside, hold down UP/DOWN arrow keys to move forward/backward, hold down LEFT/RIGHT arrow keys to pan left/right, hold down SPACEBAR to fly up (see if you can spot the pterodactyl)


Example Lab

Draggable mask: use of mask and mouse event handling

To try out this example: Click and drag the black rectangle (the x-ray block) around.
