As some of you know, ASG (aka “the CTO,” or “the Chief Technical Officer of the blog”) is double-majoring in physics and computers. (Yes, Israeli high school students have to choose a major or concentration – i.e., a מגמה - megamah, for the Hebraically-oriented among you.)
He attends the physics classes, but his yeshiva gave him permission to do all the computer courses independently.
In any event, he recently developed a snowball fight game using C#.
Here’s a screen shot of the game:
ASG wrote the following:
Snowball Fight Game Directions
- Object: The object of the Snowball Fight Game is to hit your opponent three times with snowballs.
- Game play: In this game, you play against the computer. Each player starts with three snowballs and three lives. If you run out of snowballs, you won’t be able to continue throwing until you make another snowball. When a player is hit, s/he loses some health.
- On your turn: During your turn, you can either make a snowball, throw a snowball, move closer to your opponent, or back away. The closer you are, the greater chance you have of hitting your opponent.
Now that you’ve read the directions, you can click on the following icon to download and play ASG’s Snowball Fight Game*:
Way to go, ASG!
Shabbat Shalom to all!
