I think I have officially decided that I want to work on Lemonade Stand as my project for this quarter. I remember playing the game when I was younger and it was pretty simple but fun and I definitely think there are things I could add to the game.
The game works by the user buying supplies (Sugar, Lemonade, and Cups) and then the Day Log says how many cups of lemonade are sold. The user then has to enter the amount of money made in terms of dollars, quarters, dimes, etc. When I first played the game I tried just entering the amount made by selling lemonade and kept getting a message saying "You dropped your money while trying to count it." This was very frustrating because I didn't know why I kept dropping the money and I couldn't seem to make any money. I would find that I would run out of money and there was nothing that I could do but start over.
Eventually I figured out that I needed to find the profit (sales - supplies) and if I got it right I would actually get to keep the money I made. Eventually I started actually making money in the game. I got to several hundred dollars in the game and would buy and sell a lot of supplies when I made a math error and lost everything. This was very frustrating because I didn't even have enough money to try again.
Overall, the game seems interesting but it isn't necessarily as user friendly as it could be. I am hoping through my involvement I can add more features but also make the game easier to use.
