Underway -- too bad about the paying job getting in the wayWell, I knew I wouldn't have much time to devote to this. So it's a good idea I chose an educational game that will hopefully also be useful to my 8 year old daughter. The basic idea is that a math problem will be presented (the one for the challenge will use only the 9s multiplication table). The player then shoots a cork gun at the correct answer, which is written on a yellow rubber ducky floating by.
Inspiration is from Polaris, the Atari 2600 game. :-) And some little Flash thingy that I saw a long time ago -- as I recall the player simply clicked on the correct answer, but the answer was a little target that fell down. Or something. It was a long time ago. :-)
I'll try and scan in the design drawing tomorrow. I started drawing out classes today. There are too many to finish. :-) But I'll make a go of it.
