Projects of the Week
The code to go with this version of Pac-Man is very well done! Navigate through the maze by using your cursor to tell Pac-Man where to go.
Cultivate your crops and expand your empire! Like a real-time strategy game, you are the controller of your town and people and must make decisions for better, or for worse!
Dodge the bird while collecting the carrots for the bunny!
There are 8 cannons that you have to watch out for and dodge the cannonballs! Hint: Stay in the middle before they shoot and dodge that way!
This game is unique because you have no attacks but you must dodge everything! You start out with a lot of health, so you have plenty of chances!
