Ok so here are some ideas off the top of my head. I haven't thought any
of them through, just thought it might be a good way to get some
Robot - 2-D picture of a Robot, with main playing area being its body.
You would have to fit cogs or parts in it to make it work, with the
number of parts increasing and the difficulty of putting them together
correctly harder as the levels increase.
Shuffle - A card game (boring idea).
Mashed - A single screen with platforms, a mashed potato would bounce
around the screen collecting little bits of mashed potato, avoiding the
peas and carrots (weird idea).
Jig - I'm a Scottish dancer, so a Scottish dancing game! Press the right
keys at the right time to perform the correct formation for the dance.
(niche, hard to implement).
Formation - Sheep/children/charactors wander randomly round the screen,
player's charactor has to round them up into a certain formation, with
the formations getting more challenging with increasing levels.
I'm really busy at the moment, I have some serious problems with the
code I am writing for an experiment that starts in 2 weeks, and I'm not
here this weekend. I'm in Glasgow Scottish dancing, but as you can
probably tell I'm quite enthusiastic about PyWeek. So I'll help when I can.
