The Project: I
built this while a student at the University of Michigan for a class
taught by Jack Butler. I got a little carried away with the project
and produced this complex rendition of the old Chinese tile-matching
game of solitaire. I had built this both for fun and as an learning
experience. It is therefore far from perfect. Yet it works great
and is a quite addictive. Many find it a nice replacement for solitaire
on their PC's.

My Role: I did everything
in creating this game.
Of Technical Interest:
I built this back in the days of Director 4, when only 48 sprite
channels were available, and "trails" functionality worked
a little differently. Therefore, it took some rather extravagant
programming work-arounds to produce the effect of 144 selectable
tiles on the screen at once.
