New Horizon 1 (2021), Unit 8-11 Review Game

Submitted by zurui_games

February 7, 2022

Estimated time: 35-50 minutes

Welcome to Disney Crossy Road

Update 21.02.22: Added new file for Units 9-11.
Update 22.02.22: Balance Update - removed coins on some slides and repositioned coins for Minnie because she had the highest odds of winning if students always chose the position with the coin.

This is a game to review Units 8 and 9 from the New Horizon 1 (2021) textbook.

OUTLINE

Students make teams. Each team chooses a Disney character from the available characters in the game. Students work together in groups to answer the questions. Students should take turns answering questions in their group so everyone gets a chance to speak by the end of the game. Students raise their hands when they have an answer. All teams will get a chance to answer. One correct answer per team per question.


HOW TO PLAY

Open the game in presentation mode so you can see notes on the side. (It's important for slides 12 and 13. You have to ask the students to find some characters by giving them 3 hints.)

Click PLAY then click on CLICK TO START.

Click DEMO!

Click Q to toggle showing or hiding the question. Click A to toggle showing or hiding the answer. Click the lightbulb to toggle showing or hiding the hint. Click the volume button to toggle volume on or off. Click right double arrow button to go to the next slide.
Click on the trees on the right side to trigger a timer (if needed). Tall trees are 1 minute. Short trees are 30s.

Click on the road in front of the characters to make them move to that location.
Click on the characters that are not assigned to a team to make them disappear.
Click the empty road on the right to send in the truck(s).

Students get 1 point for surviving, 2 points for surviving with a yellow coin, or 3 points for surviving with a red coin.
Point variation inclusion: -1 point for getting hit by a truck while not standing on a coin, -2 points for getting hit while standing on a yellow coin, -3 points for getting hit while standing on a red coin.

(I like to include the negative point variation after teams have accumulated some points. It makes them re-think the risk of always choosing the position with the coin.)

Click READY.


HOW TO EDIT

Click on the Home Ribbon. Click Arrange. Click Selection Panel. Click the "eye" button to show or hide the "hint panel", "answer panel", or "question panel".

Important note for editing. If you want to edit the pictures, right click on the picture and choose "Change Picture" then select from file or clipboard if you copied the image from the web or somewhere else. If you want to add new pictures, go to "edit" and "duplicate" then use previous step to change the picture. Don't just paste in new pictures or else they won't be grouped with the panel and will be on top of everything else.


Important: Custom fonts are used. You must download them to view the file properly.

Shoutout to Robert. I learned how to make games by looking at yours and reverse engineering them. Cheers.

More fun games coming soon!

      Impressive. I like the coin as an added game mechanic. Simple idea but it should really give the group members something to debate.

    2. zurui_games February 8, 2022

      Thanks. Yeah, some groups go straight for where the coin is and others debate whether or not they should take the bait :D

      This does things I wanted to do for my Super Mario activity and it breaks my head. I don`t understand how you make only the characters hit do an animation.... Next time I have a low class load I will investigate further. I must know! Nice work!

    4. shinjirarenai February 8, 2022

      This is righteous! Can't wait to try this whenever my schools decide to start group activities back up again...

    5. zurui_games February 8, 2022

      @jiggswalsh Have a look at the animations pane and you should be able to make sense of it.
      Hint: Each character has 4 possible positions. Below each position is a hidden box.
      Position 0 (P0)=Start, P1=1 space ahead, P2=2 spaces ahead, and P3=3 spaces ahead
      I created an action for "On Click" of P1 (hidden box) make P0, 2, and 3 characters disappear and make P1 character appear. Repeat for other position boxes. Animation ordering and layering are important too. I learnt the hard way!

      I see ALTopedia is going to be in good hands when I leave. This stuff is not only funtional but stylish as heck, which is hard to come by. I can't wait to see what else you bring to the site

    7. jiggswalsh February 9, 2022

      Far out. I did look quickly at the animations but couldnt figure it out... I was thinking about it last night too. I am with Lucasmh. Its a really well put together PP... Awesome job!

    8. zurui_games February 9, 2022

      Actually, I'll be making a video on how I made this game as part of an ALT workshop assignment. When it's done I'll share it with the community so we can all level up our game making skills!

    9. Lucasmh February 9, 2022

      Excellent! I wish I had time to submit something myself, but hopefully my crazy pile of Pokemon and Scott Pilgrim games will be enough

      Just to let you know your second font link doesn't work because there's no colon after the https! Was confused why it was just googling instead of starting the download when I copy pasted it. Really cool game :)

    11. UonumaRobert February 13, 2022

      It’s cool you’re putting together a how to video for the community. Gotta ask though isn’t this a bit advanced for a workshop. Generally when my co-workers ask how to make a ppt game I show them how to make point boxes. Neat enough but not overwhelming. A good place to start. Never mind I just realizes as a video workshop, people can rewatch at their leisure. Not like old school workshops.

    12. zurui_games February 14, 2022

      @Charg thanks. I fixed the link ^^
      @Robert yeah, I hope as a video tutorial it's easier for people to digest. If there's a demand for it, I won't mind making more.

    13. zurui_games February 22, 2022

      I did a balance update to fix the 'bug' of Minnie having the highest odds of winning if students always choose the position that has the coins. I also removed coins from some slides, so it should make things a bit more fair.

      This looks so fun! Do teams choose one picture to answer or must they answer all of the pictures?
      If they only choose one picture, do the other teams have to choose a picture that hasn`t been answered yet?

    15. zurui_games April 19, 2022

      @sakura23 Teams choose one picture to answer and other teams choose a picture that hasn't been answered yet.
