Task 2: Hurdles

This customer would like an animation illustrating three individuals running a hurdle race. Therefore,

  • They must “jump” over the hurdles.
  • You should have them “animated”
  • The customer does not think much of our company’s clip art options (so you need to create your own).
  • The three people must be different and look like track “people” (e.g., not soccer attire).
  • Only one person wins the race.


Task 3: Game-Maze

Create a game or maze utilizing as many (if not all) of the following criteria

  • 3-5 pages and/or levels
  • Way to automatically turn pages or a button to take you to the next level
  • A means to manipulate an object (i.e., speed and/or direction slider)
