“What Do You Think of the LeBron James ‘Spectacle’?”

Tech 10 Birthday Game Project: Yuval

This is my design proposal. I chose this one because it relates to my brother the most and I want to try to use Scratch.

 

This game will be titled: Omri's Birthday Pong. The Audience of the game is my oldest brother. He is 21 years of age, and is a real gamer. He is very competent when it comes to games. This game will be a computer game. I plan on using Scratch. I will the laptops in school and my personal laptop at home to work on the game. I will also have to use pictures and those can be found using Creative Commons. The game is based, overall, on Pong. This is a historic game that has been remade many, many times. I can download some other versions of pong from Scratch to find some models of hwo to make it.

 

McDonalds is delicious right? Not after you hear this.

Today, I played a game called The McDonald's game. I found it at http://mcvideogame.com/. I got interested in this game because we were told to play 1 of 5 game in my technology class. I love to eat McDonalds and it seemed liek the only one that really interested me.

The McDonalds game is about playing through the production part of mcdonalds. The game includes the whole production, from plotting the land to the mney making. The game maeks sure you pay attentin to each part. You can go bankrupt, as it is hard times and you are a new owner of the company. It's description is given and it says, "Making money in a corporation like McDonald's is not simple at all! Behind every sandwich there is a complex process you must learn to manage: from the creation of pastures to the slaughter, from the restaurant management to the branding. You'll discover all the dirty secrets that made us one of the biggest company of the world."

My game idea...Yuval S

  I am using the idea about the Imagination of the game designers. My Response was: "They came up with the idea because it is a very simple one. Using a character to run and collect what they want to obtain, the little circles, to win the game. Within the game are the monsters, and if they come in contact with the monsters the main character will lose life. There are obstacles in the way, such as blocks that you need to go around. This is an idea used in many games and the designers most likely borrowed ideas from a classic game, Pac-Man. It has the same exact idea as this one with different characters." The six elements of a game are:
1) Game Components- The game components of this game are the characters, obstacles, dots (that give points), health bar and monsters. These are the same components that pac-man has, as i think that the idea was stolen from pac-man.
2) Game Space- The space is a square, with the action going on in the area of it. There are blocks, that are areas that the character can not walk on. Other areas are accessible.
 

Two Game Comparison: Yuval Shafir


 

Not all games are the same. Some are video games played for entertainment and nice visuals. Others seem to be designed to make money and give the player a good time. While some are played simply for competition. Whatever game it is, the goals are always the same: To have a good time. I love playing games, and I spend a lot of my free time playing video games. I love the feeling of beating or doing well in a game

 

I spend a lot of time playing video games: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Halo 3, Left 4 Dead, Half-life 2 and Shadow of the Colossus. Anything and everything that incorporates a great story line, is my kind of game. I love to beat games, and kill monsters, it makes me feel powerful, and being the best. I enjoy knowing that I'm one step closer to completing all the missions, to being a winner. If I happen to lose, I do what any other player would do. I tell myself that I it happens, and I'll win next time. When I do poorly I don't feel accomplished and I have the need to play again to win.
