    Absolutely. Assignment 4 wasn't really my kind of game since I am more interested in games with graphics and designs rather than text based adventure game, but the tasks are similar and can also be challenging depending on the complexity of the...

    While I wouldn’t say I want to start coding my own game, learning coding has given me much more respect for people who code games (or anything complex for that matter). After doing Project 4 I can only imagine how much coding goes into making...

    Thanks for that insight, Robert! I was going to ask the same thing that Michael asked. If it's helpful to anyone, I thought that answering the quiz questions at the end of Chapter 1 would be helpful in summarizing each unit. Since the quiz...
