Candy Runner (Oct. 24 and 31, 2015 at Amazon)
  1. Draw the player in your Halloween costume.
  2. Make more/better candy drawings.
  3. Use the sounds in the bully, haunted house, and witch.
  4. Make it so touching a witch hides the witch and loses some candy.
  5. Make it so touching a black cat (but not a house) hides the cat and loses some candy.
  6. Make it so pressing the 'd' key when you are touching a house rings the doorbell and gives you more candy.
  7. Make it so hitting a bully with a heart makes him friendlier and gives points. A friendly bully only steals your candy and doesn't end the game.
  8. Make it so hitting a bully with another heart makes him even friendlier and gives points. A friendlier bully doesn't even steal your candy.
  9. Make it so the player has a limited number of jumps. Getting candy gives you more jumps.

Project guide: CatAndMouse.pdf

Game Ideas
  1. Cat gets a point each time it touches a mouse.
  2. When cat touches a mouse, the mouse clone deletes. How quickly can you get all the mice?
  3. Cat has to get to goal without touching a mouse. When it touches a mouse it goes back to the start.
  4. Mice shoot spit-ball at the cat.
  5. Cat shoots spit-ball at the mice.
