Following the vein of word quiz animals I have now made another version.

Code wise it now enables to use funcitons instead of sprites.

The drawing function do not use any global variable besides the tick number (tick+=1 every _update()).

Any suggestions would be welcome.

I see you took my advice and improved the input so you can select a letter at a time. Nicely done.

I'm ... not so sure the educational value of this. Spelling by adding one letter is definitely fundumental compared to learning shapes, especially complex ones like the Pentagon.

It does remind me of an early program my Dad made to teach spelling without speech, yet it used an entirely unique and different technique. May post it after time.

It might not teach spelling per se. It is more for my daughter who is learning to read.

I could spice it up with more than one missing letter.

But for now she already finds it challenging with one missing letter.

My even younger baby daughter goes crazy seeing the shapes move.

Added parabolas and improved my previously terrible implementation for waves.

Feel free to request your favorite shapes (I can always chicken out if the math is too hard to implement).

Might add unicorns to your arrangement of animals. My little niece loves unicorns. :)

I might have to sacrifice a 4x4 sptite. But your niece will have that unicorn

Dear @dw817, I have added a unicorn into the game.

I managed to do so without sacrificing any sprite by "defragging" the spritesheet. AKA moving sprites around.

I uploaded updated cart to the word_quiz_animals thread.

Will have to let her try it. You are indeed the accomplished artist !

@dw817 Nononono.

I wish I was that good an artist. I did indeed draw some sprites: dog, bird, cat, bunny and fish.
But most of them I adapted from Google images searches for "pixelated animal".
