This prototype was made for Pico-View, a monthly web-zine hosted on NerdyTeachers.com.

This month's prototype is named "Simon's Skull". It is a template for building your own game similar to the original Simon game/toy.

This prototype has a couple interesting features to learn from:

1) Custom Color Palette; using a mix of the default and hidden colors.
2) Game States; A clear separation of the computer's turn and the player's turn.

The game has the same rules as the original, where you listen and watch the buttons being played by Simon (the computer) and then you have to repeat them back in the same order. Use the arrow keys to play the pattern. We added our own theme to the game by making it look like a skull and crossbones and that can be taken farther such as using this as a minigame for unlocking chests in a main pirate themed game.

Beyond just playing this game, we encourage you to take on the challenge of building your own version by creating your own Simon-like game where the player must memorize and repeat a growing sequence of buttons.

Don't forget to share it here on the BBS with the tag "prototype-party" so we can see what you were inspired to create. And keep your eyes out for more in the coming issues of Pico-View!
