I'm currently trying to make a game by Ketchapp called Circle The Dot. Basically, you try to circle the blue dot (played by a computer) by placing orange dots on the screen. When the blue dot 'escapes' the game is over.
Read on if you would like to know more or just want to get completely confused because I'm terrible at explaining things XD
I'm using Clones to make this. The code kind of looks like a mess at the moment, but here's how it works: There are 81 Clones identified by their angle. After the Clones are created, 7 randomly chosen Clones turn orange and 1 randomly chosen Clone turns blue. Their color is kept track on the Self "My color" variable (1= orange 2= blue 3= tan).
When you tap a Clone, it checks if it is tan (My color= 3) and turns orange. Then the "COM Turn" variable turns to 1 (0= your turn, 1= computer's turn). Then, the blue dot chooses a random path (I'm hoping to maybe making it to where it chooses the shortest path, eventually. Not sure if that's possible though). I noticed a pattern when looking at the surrounding dots' angle numbers. This is where it gets tricky.
This part works out okay, but if a dot is orange then the blue dot can't move to that spot. I've tried to make it to where the computer moves back to its old spot and tries again, but it's not exactly working... the blue dots are multiplying.
I'm not really sure where I'm going with this project, or if it will even work, but if you have any solutions or advice (or questions!) I'd be glad to hear them.
People who have shown interest in this project or who I think might be able to help
P.S: there was an older topic on this, but it's unlisted now, so nobody can view it. I just decided to make a new one
