Slide Puzzle, Hit and Blow, and Hyakunin Isshu Karuta. It improves the logical thinking necessary for game creation.

"Slide Puzzle", "Hit and Blow", and "Hyakunin Isshu Karuta" games are popular games in Japan, but can you imagine in your mind how you would design a game if you were to program it as an online game? In this course, you will enjoy the process of creating a game that is commonly played in Japan by trying to create it from scratch, while intensively developing your logical thinking skills.

1. slide puzzle (15 puzzles)Slide puzzles are popular games that are easy to play. Plastic slide puzzles require a set of frames for each game, but online games do not. In this course, students will program a "15 puzzle" that uses a single empty space to rearrange the numbers 1-15 placed in a 4x4 square. The key to success is how quickly you can clear the game. This is a game that can be enjoyed by one person or multiple players.

2. hit and blowHit and Blow is a game in which the player predicts a four-digit number made by the program. When both the number and the position are correct, the game displays "Hit"; when the number is correct but the position is wrong, the game displays "Blow". The game is played by guessing the correct number using these indications as clues. 11 input opportunities for 4-digit numbers are available at the maximum, and the key point of the game is to be able to guess the number in as few input opportunities as possible. This is another game that can be enjoyed by one or more players.

3. Hyakunin Isshu KarutaThe Hyakunin Isshu is a collection of 100 waka poems written by 100 poets, one for each poet. Playing karuta based on the Hyakunin Isshu is an official game that can be enjoyed by men and women of all ages. The comic "Chihayafuru," based on the Hyakunin Isshu karuta game, was a hit and was made into a movie starring Suzu Hirose. In this course, we will create a game based on the Hyakunin Isshu karuta game. This game is an opportunity to experience the classics and to strengthen memorization skills.
