Price is Right peg board game.

Overview

Plinko is the name of a game played on The Price Is Right, where a contestant drops up to 5 Plinko discs down a large peg board to win up to $50,000 cash.

My version of Plinko has simple graphics, but otherwise plays just like the game show; i.e. you drop 5 discs to win up to $50,000.

What's new in Plinko

Version 1.2.1:
  • Previous version would sometimes stop and show a "A resource wasn't found." message. The source of the problem was found and corrected.
  • Previous version might prompt the user to download a required file, even though it was included with distribution. The source of the problem was found and corrected.

This kind of looks like a programming class assignment - it's not even interactive; it asks the user a few questions and then computes the results to display in an AppleScriptable text editor (which comes with it). Not really worth the download, but make it interactive and animated and it could be fun!

As stated in the description my version of Plinko does have "simple graphics" and it does have a simple interface but it is not based on any programming class assignment, book, etc; I wrote it from scratch, just for the fun of it. As for being interactive it is true you won't be dragging and dropping discs with your mouse; instead you specify the rows, columns, start position(s), and how many times you want it to run. To make it more interactive (dragging discs with the mouse) would be a huge amount of work and I personally don't think it would make it any more fun. In regards to saying it should be animated, well it is. If it looks like the results are displayed instantaneously then your computer is too fast for the default settings (there is no speed governor); just increase the number of rows to 501 and the number of runs to 100; then you should see it animated. > BRIAN KENDIG This kind of looks > like a programming class assignment > - it's not even interactive; > it asks the user a few questions > and then computes the results to > display in an AppleScriptable > text editor (which comes with it). > Not really worth the download, > but make it interactive and > animated and it could be > fun!
