For this week’s Looking Outwards, I looked at two examples of games that are are similar to what I hope to create for my final project. Both games were created by primarygamesarena.com and were originally intended to be educational math games for younger children.
The main elements of these games that I gained inspiration from was that the graphics were simple but still effective, and both games were mouse interactive and had an element of keeping tracking how how many “items” that the mouse-controlled character caught.
In the background of both of these projects, there were random graphic elements, which is something I may consider adding. As I go about working on my project, I think it will be helpful to come back and look at these games again.
