We later revisited this game and reskinned it as a Christmas card called Snowing Stellas, featuring the card recipient’s cat and a snowy theme.
I made a little utility to download all Imgur images and albums that a user has submitted to Reddit. I worked on it to learn Python and regex. My conclusion was that Python is fun and regex is fiddly but interesting.
You can download it on GitHub. It’s called rid.py (short for Reddit-Imgur Downloader).
Also, my friends and I are working on a chess game, the code for which can be seen on GitHub. It is going to be used to practice the basic design methodologies that we’re going to use for a group project, like careful documentation. We’re looking to expand this into a much more ambitious game.
I worked on two final projects this term. The first was a group project in my Object Oriented programming course. I did the frontend coding of Toys Are Yours. The second was a solo effort in my graphics course–I did what I often do, and made a game called HistoBreaker.
Toys Are Yours utilizes the calendar widget I posted here previously.
As a simple exercise in multiplayer in PHP, I created a Tic-Tac-Toe setup. The top row selects the virtual table to sit down at, the second row destroys session data for that table, and the other links are self-descriptive. This exposes everything to the users, but I got too lazy to write in how to handle a user leaving the game. Instead, the users can take care of it themselves. Not that I’m expecting this to be a big hit–it’s mainly me warming up for a collaboration with my friends.
This version is far superior to my previous Tic-Tac-Toe game–but that’s not saying much. It’s not particularly sophisticated, but it works.
The main concept is that Sudoku only needs some form of symbols to play, not necessarily numbers. This game allows one to upload and/or use a palette of images. It also has other features not seen in other online Sudoku games, like a checkpointing system.
