THE RE-BIRTH OF THE PPC CHALLENGES! - Challenge number 9 - TRIGGER HAPPY! Empty THE RE-BIRTH OF THE PPC CHALLENGES! - Challenge number 9 - TRIGGER HAPPY!

Here is a brand new challenge for any member to rise to.

The challenge is called TRIGGER HAPPY (Considering how there has been a lot of discussion on triggers lately)

The challenge is: MAKE A GAME OR INTERACTIVE ANIMATION THAT INVOLVES AT LEAST 10 TRIGGERS

Here are the rules:

1. The work must be made in PowerPoint (any version) with assets from sources available in PowerPoint (Shapes / Icons / 'Bing' pictures etc)
2. It must be posted to this Challenges and Contests forum, not the Games, Animation or Artwork forums. (See the READ ME on how to post games etc)
4. It should be an original work, or works, produced between now and the closing date (more than one piece of work can be submitted)
5. It can be as simple or complex as you like, but there is a time limit
6. The closing date for posting is 22 June 2020 (I'm willing to negotiate slightly on this)
7. PPC Admin staff and Featured Members are eligible to participate in this challenge
8. The prizes are: 5 Reputation points for each entry plus 10 reputation points for the one piece of work that the Admins consider to have the most merit (Admins are not eligible for any of these points)
9. The Admins will judge against whatever criteria they think fit, adjust the rules slightly if the situation demands - and their judgement is final.
10. Take the challenge seriously - but not too seriously. 

See the 'Challenges & contests FAQs' for more information on what these are about.

Feel free to practice anything else shown in the forum tutorials that you haven't tried before.

Please get back to me if you have any questions.

GOOD LUCK! - Really looking forward to seeing how you can rise to this challenge!

Do you mean at least 10 triggers in whole game , or in each slide?

I was thinking of 10 triggers on one slide, but you can spread them over several slides if you want. (A link to a new slide does not count as a trigger of course).

Here's my entry. It's a cut-down version of roulette.

I think it just about beats the '10 Triggers' requirement. There are 413 of them!




I have uploaded it to my website already as a new 'Lockdown' game. I've been making and posting more games lately to help people beat the boredom (a little bit at least). Google Analytics has shown quite a jump in users in recent weeks.

You can download PPSX and PPTX versions from here: POWERPOINTGAMES.UK

Great to hear that you are working on something!

I'm sure you could beat me on some levels. It's not about the quantity of triggers, it's about the quality of the game and its originality / creativity / amount of fun / scariness - whatever!

...And for anyone who is new to PPT, it's about having a go - lots of kudos for that!

Here is my submission, finally !! Sorry for being late because it could have been done sooner ; but of course i distracted from it many times Laughing

The game is called as 'Crack the code'
You have to crack the code i.e number password based on the hints which will be given according to your each input.
Also , it has unlimited attempts .
Actually , when i was close to finish the game , i came to realise that it was way similar to mastermind . So ...... will it be considered as a submission ??
Believe me it wasn't intensional.
Anyways....
Enjoy the game!! Very Happy

Here is my Trigger Challenge submission - four Mini Games.

Rather then calling them 'games' I'd much rather want to call them an 'insight' or 'inspiration' to the possibilities PowerPoint - and especially triggers - can offer. Despite the very limiting gaming possibilities of PowerPoint, it is really up to the imagination and creativity of the programmer how he/she decides to use what is. I hope to inspire some of you creative people out there Smile

Why four games? Making one inspired me to make the next! Hence, they have a lot in common:
- they all are mind games requiring some analysis and logic
- they all use the same 5x5 square board (except MiniGame2 - The Maze, which quickly goes to full screen)
- they all are about clicking your way through

Why Mini?
- MINImal ascetic graphics - including icons - made with PowerPoint only
- MINImum time needed to play a game Smile

I can imagine these games being built up to become much bigger pieces of gaming scope with elaborate trap doors, venecian walk-throughs and teleport pads giving the player an additional experience.


MiniGame1 - The Spinner

Many thanks for the submission Yahretzky.

As I mentioned to Aditya, the judges won't comment until after the deadline - but anyone else is welcome to.

Almost!!

Game 1 is a link to a picture file.

Game 4 is another link to Maze 2

And...could you make the links to the PPTX files so that we can view the animation pane and the triggers used please?

(My fault - I should have said that in the rules).

I'm not sure how, but I got your game to download as a PPTX file. I could see the Animation Pane, but the game didn't work exactly like the PPSX version.

I looks like you made it on PPT for Mac - is that right? It's odd because I didn't think that PPT for Mac had triggers!

If you don't mind, I think making your PPTX file available for download would be useful.

Thanks.
