Processing.py Python Games
Hi, I'm Mark Watney and I'm still alive. . . obviously.— The Martian, 2015
My first major creation after I started learning Python was an interactive robot I named GreenBot.
Using Processing's Python mode, I was able to make him move around the screen at speeds controlled by the user, have him warp to the other side of the play area (à la Pac-Man), and have customization.
As well, I experimented with adding sound, resulting in the speed changes playing a higher/lower pitch sound when pressed based on the speed as well as a sound for when the style is changed.
This project helped me see the potential in Proccessing.py, prompting my future projects.
Here is the instruction manual I wrote at the time:
