Video Game Programming-Final Game 
For your final game, you will be building an educational game. Remember, this game MUST teach concepts, vocabulary, theories or other educational themes. Remember you can work with ERA faculty to create a game that is useful in an instructor's class for a bonus of 25 points. This game must contain 3 student created backgrounds, 3 student created sprites, and must make use of some form of gravity. Remember when using complicated variables that some variable programming (equations, etc) will be very difficult to program, so take that into account when designing.
