I made this app using Pygame for fun to explore the visual-meets-code aspect of Pygame and program an AI for my first time. Honestly I just wanted to relive my favorite childhood game and play with it for fun. I used Python 2.7.3.
####To start the app: python connect-four.py
The app allows you to play a two-player game or a game against the computer; the computer option has easy, medium, or hard levels. These levels are as follows:
- Easy: A random column is chosen by the computer
- Medium/Hard: A column is chosen by the computer based on a minimax algorithm; to conserve time, the algorithm is limited by depth. The depth limit is 3 for medium and 5 for hard.
####The playing screens look like the following: General Game:
