For our semester project in computer maintenance and service, where the goal is to succeed in the a+ certification test, we have to create a board game with 50 a+ questions.
I asked the teacher if I could make a computer game, and sounding a little surprised, he said ok.
So now the question is, what type of game should I make that implements 50 a+ questions, and supports up to 3 players?
I have already made a space shooter game in allegro, the 'traditional' console games like tic tac toe, half of a space shooter in the windows gdi.
This game I'm making now will be for windows gdi.
I'm thinking about making a section of the screen being used for asking the player the question, and then they hit a button (a,b,c,d) for the answer. The questions and answers could be put into 2 50-spot arrays. The answer would actually be only 1 of 4 multiple choice letters. I'd have keep track of this on paper. Then, when they answer a question correctly, their 'meter' goes up. WHen they answer wrong, the 'meter' goes down. I'm not sure by how much, but you get the idea. Each player would have their own meter. This would go either through 50 questions or until a player fills up their meter.
Any other suggestions?
