Activity 3A: Analyzing a Game

Downloadable Games

These games can be downloaded from the Web and installed on a computer, free of charge. (In some cases only the demonstration version is free, but this version is sufficient for use in the project.) Downloadable games often have richer physics embedded in them than browser-based games do.


Browser-Based Games

If downloading software is not feasible due to your school’s computer policy or other restrictions, these browser-based games can be used for the unit project.
