.
THE AIM WAS TO DEVELOP A GAME USING A GAME MAKING SOFTWARE GAME MAKER.THIS IS A QUIZ GAME HAVING SYSTEM MANAGEMENT RELATED MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS.THIS GAME CAN BE USED FOR A QUICK REVISION OR TO CHECK ONE'S KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE SUBJECT.THE GAME CALCULATES A +50 SCORE FOR A RIGHT SELECTED ANSWER AND A -10 SCORE FOR A WRONGLY ANSWERED QUESTION.THE GAME CAN BE DEVELOPED FURTHER TO USE ON A MUCH LARGER SCALE LIKE FOR A WHOLE CLASS TO TAKE A CLASS TEST,ONLINE QUIZ ETC.

.
WHEN ITS COME TO THE MINI PROJECT TOPIC WE SELECTED GAME MAKING AS OUR TOPIC.

.
NOW WE HAD TWO WAYS TO ACHIEVE THIS:-
1.THROUGH C CODING
2.BY USING A ONLINE GAME MAKING SOFTWARE AS WHAT WE DID.

WE SELECTED SECOND OPTION NOT BECAUSE WE HAVE ANY FEAR OF CODING ACTUALLY WE DON’T HAVE ANY WE DID THIS BECAUSE IN C THERE NO GOOD GRAPHICALS THAT ONE CAN USE,ITS JAVA THAT CAN BE GOOD BUT WE DON’T HAVE MUCH KNOWLEDGE IN THAT.MOREOVER,IT’S NOT A INTRODUCTION TO PROGRAMING PROJECT.

.
Game Maker requires no prior understanding of programming or game creating experience. It simply requires you to cut and paste elements into a game much as if you were using a word processor.Game Maker is very much community-driven meaning there is a thriving forum of users and reams of user manuals to help you get to grips with it.
This is not to say you'll be able to create great games in minutes.Game Maker still takes some getting used to and learning

. Game Maker is an interesting project that provides a great platform to take your first steps into game creation.

WHY WE SELECTED GAME MAKER

.
No programming experience necessary

AS WE DECIDED TO USE A ONLINE GAME MAKING SOFTWARE LIKE GAME MAKER,WE ARE OPEN WITH MANY OPTIONS THAT IS WE CAN COME OUT WITH A CRICKET GAME,SOME CAR RACING GAME ETC.

BUT THAN WE THINK WHY DON’T MAKE SOMETHING THAT MAY HAVE SOME REAL USE IN FUTURE THAT’S WHY WE MADE ZUMANJI !!. IT WILL ALSO HELP TO SUSTAIN A LAST MOMENT REVISION EVEN IN A ENTERTAINING WAY..

ZUMANJI !! IT HAS 25 QUESTIONS AT THIS TIME WHICH INCREASED OR DECREASED AS PER THE REQUIREMENT.

EVERY QUESTION HAS 4 CORRESPONDING OPTIONS TO IT OUT OF WHICH ONLY ONE IS CORRECT.FOR A CLICK CORRESPONDING TO A CORRECT ANSWER THE PLAYER GETS A +50 WHEREAS FOR A WRONG CLICK IT ALSO TAKES AWAY 10 THAT IS -10 FROM WHATEVER THE SCORE WOULD BE.

ZUMANJI..!! ONLY LIMITATION IS IT CANNOT READ THE RELATIVE SCORE STARTING FROM A NEGATIVE ORIGIN THAT IS NO NEGATIVE SCORE UNLESS YOU HAVE POSITIVE SCORE PREVIOUSLY

How can you make a quiz on game maker.

.
The very think one needed to do is to just open the game maker and go for tutorial on the right side of the screen to know the basics of game maker to built a game.

.

The direct steps make a quiz game

.
the very first thing is how do you want the game to look like that is every single thing that we sees when a game starts.

That is from the questions to its answers,from the right tick to the wrong tick how will they going to look like?

These things can be created using sprites menu on the left side. The sprites only accept jpeg format sprites that is all questions and all answers are needed to be in jpeg format separately, yes all separately.that means for 25 questions we made 125 jpeg files using microsoft paint.

To do so just click on the load sprites option and select your question file.similarly its 4 corresponding answer files.

.

This is how it looks after loading a question sprite

.
After that there are many options like backgrounds, paths, scripts, rooms, objects all can be worked similarly as we can see for objects. we can’t every step here that’s why we jumped to objects here.

Objects are how do you want a particular sprite to behave according to your need that is we can select events that we wanted for a particular sprite and then we can select the particular actions that we want to link to that event of that particular sprite. Let us try see that using some snapshots.
That is First select an event then the particular actions for that event of a particular sprite

.

.

.
That means 5*6 clicks for one sprite of a question which means to make one question one have make nearly 5*6*5 clicks i.e more than 150 clicks to make only objects for a particular question. In total for a single question 350+ clicks have to be made. This is only most fatique and time consuming part of the game making. But once get to used to it, and named all sprites and objects correspondingly same it will not to create confusion at that end.
