  • Complete and demo Gravity Launcher w/ arrays and multiple balls

Tuesday - Wednesday (3/21/17 - 3/22/17)

Agenda:

  • Demo missing assignments
  • Convert Project: Pong (Mouse vs Keyboard) to Java AND use arrays so that there are multiple balls on the screen
    • You must change the gameplay! If a ball passes a player's paddle, then give that person a point. When there are no more balls on the screen, then the player with fewer points wins.
    • Note: If you do not have the Python code, then just get a copy from somebody who does
    • key is a char, so you need to use single quotes
    • hit() function must be edited to accept an input parameter i
  • Convert Animation: Gravity Ball with Mouse Launcher to Java AND use arrays so that there are multiple balls (of different sizes) launched
    • Note: If you do not have the Python code, then just get a copy from somebody who does
    • Challenge: Give each ball a different radius. Correlate the initial energy for each particular ball to the radius
