Monkey in a Tangle =================================== Entry in PyWeek #7 <http://www.pyweek.org/7/> Team: Ohio State U. Game Creation Club Members: morgan.goose, Alfred Rossi (AlfredR), Jane, jsharpna DEPENDENCIES: You might need to install some of these before running the game: Python: http://python.org/ PyGame: http://pygame.org/ PyMunk: http://code.google.com/p/pymunk/ RUNNING THE GAME: On Windows or Mac OS X, locate the "run_game.pyw" file and double-click it. Othewise open a terminal / console and "cd" to the game directory and run: python run_game.py HOW TO PLAY THE GAME: --KEYS-- left Move left right Move right z Picks up x Drops an item c Attaches held item to chain v Detaches item from chain Space/Up Jump r Restarts level The game mechanics work like this: You're a monkey with a tether. You'd like to box yourself some bananas but your hands are circular so what do you do? You tether them! (Why not?). In the upper right hand corner you'll see the number of bananas you need to box and how many you've boxed so far. Once your box is full you will move to the next level. If you don't complete the level before time runs out you must restart the level. z picks up your tether x drops it c attaches the held end of your tether to certain movable items in the game (and non-movable hooks on the ground). You have to be holding the tether and pressing against the item you'd like to rope. v detaches the rope from an item, you need to be pressing against the connected item. You can jump with space (or up) and you move the arrow keys. NOTES: A fast computer is probably necessary to play the game. It will likely be unplayable on anything slower than a 1.8 GHz x86 We'd also like to give a special thanks to pymike for the use of his ezmenu library. LICENSE: Licensed under the BSD3 license.
