Chapter 16. Developing the Mr. Stick Man Game
Now that we’ve created the images for our Mr. Stick Man Races for the Exit game, we can begin to develop the code. The description of the game in the previous chapter gives us a basic idea of what we need: a stick figure that can run and jump, and platforms that he must jump to.
We’ll need code to display the stick figure and move it across the screen, as well as to draw platforms. But before we write that code, we need to create the canvas to display our background image.
Creating the Game Class
First, we’ll create a class called
Game, which will be our program’s main controller. The
Game class will have an
__init__ function for initializing the game and a
mainloop function for doing the animation.
