I guess what I would like would be to have something like a maze-- to make it simple.
I’m also hoping for some interactivity so that people could select objects, place them on a grid and then a “program” would approximate how those objects could move through a maze given where the objects started and ended. (This is the part I’ve been told will be most difficult.)
I know that sounds abstract, but I’m not sure what I’m going to find once I start so I haven’t planned anything out. Ultimately, a rats-in-a-maze “game” where one could pick a rat, give start and end info and then see how the rat did in the maze and maybe some abstract data about how fast the rat was and how “smart” it was. (Comparing results to expectations would be good too.)
I haven’t even had a chance to look at anything other than flash based games to see if this is at all possible. Interactivity, people choosing start and end spots and “rats,” is pretty important. Also, “SEEing” how objects perform in the maze is important.
Sorry again for being so obscure… I know nothing about using Flash, but, when I mentioned a few ideas at work, I was told I should try it out.
