O'Grady Says: Type This In
This is an implementation of the well known game, sometimes also known as Simon Says.
This program can be most helpful in teaching the concept of left and right, but be warned, as it stands the program means its left or right, not yours!
You start the game with just one point. The speech bubble will then announce the action required together with the name of the person giving the order. If O'Grady says 'do it' then you do it fast! If O'Riley says 'do it' then you do not! The little chap at the top follows all commands.
There are four possible actions which you may be asked to do. Up and Down are actioned using the up or down cursor as normal. Left or Right are obtained using the respective key in relation to the on-screen character. This means that pressing the left cursor will actually lift up the chap's right arm.
This swap has been incorporated to provide more of a mental challenge. It can be quite a struggle to work out which is left, which is right and of course whether O'Grady said 'do it'. Play the game and you will see what I mean.
Speedy mental processing is important in O'Grady Says or lack of action may be taken as intentional. This could mean that you lose points or, if you are lucky, doing nothing could be just the right response.
