|IPD Students Working Hard on Game|
Three seniors at Auburn Career Center are working hard on developing their own small game in Internet Programming and Development. Here's what they have to say:
"We are building a game website that is very simillar Scrabble. You are given a word that is jumbled up, and the objective is to put the letters in the right order. You can only fail to get the word right ten times within each level. Each level has five jumbled words. The words, like always, start from easy words like ‘Hello’ and progressively get more difficult, all the way up to words like ’Expeditionary’. To be able to do this, it takes a lot of time and effort. We had to create a database that allows us to keep you in our system so you aren’t a new person every time you log in. Plus, it lets us keep track of your score, the words you did get right and the words you bombed. And to get the site looking organized and presentable takes time, and A LOT of coding. Our front page alone is 81 lines of code. The CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) page, which is what we use to design features of the site (color scheme, graphics, font size etc.), adds 451 lines of code. That may not seem like a lot compared to other games such as Minecraft, which has more than 4 billion lines of code, but it is still extensive and brain pounding. Once we have the site up and running as a working game, we hope to see all of you enjoying our hard work."
