Program in Python on a Raspberry Pi or PC by developing six computer games. Each game project is split into several chapters of the book. Rather than taking you through programming techniques as standalone concepts, this book explains concepts as they are used within a game. You'll learn about variables; integer, real, Boolean and string data types; conditional if statements; fixed loops and conditional loops; modularity; arrays and lists; and predefined functions. You’ll also discover the PyGame library, which is popularly used in the development of 2D games. Key programming concepts are revisited in subsequent projects in the book to consolidate prior learning. Beyond teaching you how to code, this book explains the programming logic behind each project—exemplifying the process of designing and writing a computer game. All the projects in this book are supported by Code Angel (mycodeangel.com). Code Angel Code Angel largely serves students and new developers and the projects work by encouraging you to ‘Learn...then play’. Taking this approach, you'll be able to build fun 2D games and enjoy playing them by yourself or with friends. Developing games in this way keeps you engaged, gives a purpose as you work through each project, and offers a sense of achievement when each game is finished. What You'll Learn Integrate the fundamentals of the Python 3 programming language Program fun, classic computer games you can then play Develop computational thinking skills and abilities that can be applied to other ventures Who This Book Is For Students, hobbyists, new developers or anyone wishing to learn how to design and write computer games.

Make fun games while learning to code. Focused on making games rather than teaching programming theory, in this book you're more likely to see code on how gravity affects a missiles trajectory instead of the most efficient way to search through data. Even then the code is kept simple as games should be about playability rather than complex physics. There are links to the official documentation when you need to lookup information that isn't included in the book. Start with a simple text based game to grasp the basics of programming in Python. Then moves on to creating simple graphical games in Pygame Zero. Not only will you learn object oriented programming to make it easier to make more complex games, you'll also work to create your own graphics and sounds. 3D graphics are a little complex. So we focus on 2D games, including spins on some classic boardgames and arcade games. All the games are designed to run on a Raspberry Pi. They will work on any Raspberry Pi, but will also work on any other computer that supports Python 3 along with Pygame Zero. The games you make will be playable and hopefully fun to play. And by the end of the book, you can step beyond the provided source code to develop your own unique games and programs. What You'll Learn Code in Python Generate sounds and graphics for 2D games Grasp object oriented programming with Pygame Zero Who This Book Is ForBeginning game developers interested in working with low-cost and easy-to-learn solutions like Pygame Zero and the Raspberry Pi.

Master's Thesis from the year 2019 in the subject Computer Science - Programming, University of Northampton, language: English, abstract: The proposed rehabilitations system is going to be for the upper and lower limbs practising. Few games have been designed for various rehabilitations purposes such as practicing hands, arms and legs. The proposed rehabilitation system consists of two different applications, the first one is for the patients to practice and the second one is for the therapists to keep them updated with the progress and improvement of their patients. Two wearable devices have been designed, the first one is for the hand practising and the second one is for the legs training. Stroke leads to intense physical disability in the human body, it causes some deficits due to the horrific events that resulted in wars and other problems in our world. Very often stroke survivors suffer from a permanent partial disability that restricts the movement of the hand, arm, and leg. We know that the rehabilitation should be at an earlier stage of the injury to recover the infected parts of the human body. The key success of the stroke recovery is the patient's motivation, it would be a challenge to recover if the patient is not motivated and not practising. In this project, we are focusing on finding the best ways to motivate stroke patients to do rehabilitation. Serious games have been involved in this area as it is considered as enjoyable and motivated for all people. Games are very popular, and most people enjoy gaming, especially with the development of the modern technologies which made it very easy to interact with games. Games are getting involved in many different areas like in the military, health care, entertainments, education, and government. In this project, the author will implement a new method to motivate stroke survivors to do their rehabilitation through practicing on a game which will be based on a wearable device to control the game in order to encourage stroke survivors to recover the disabled part of their body.
