Assignment 3: “Match-3, The Shiny Update”


Getting Started

Download the distro code for your first game from and unzip, which should yield a directory called assignment3.

cd assignment3

A Match (3) Made in Heaven

Welcome to your fourth assignment! There was a lot to learn with timers, tweens, and more in this lecture, but unfortunately, our game is still lacking in a few areas. By extending its functionality, we’ll have something even closer to famous titles such as Bejeweled and Candy Crush Saga!
