Included in this chapter is the source code for four extra games. Unfortunately, only the source code (including comments) is in this chapter without any detailed explanation of the code. By now, you can play these games and figure out how the code works by looking at the source code and comments.
The games are:
- Flippy – An "Othello" clone where the player tries to flip the computer AI player’s tiles.
- Ink Spill – A "Flood It" clone that makes use of the flood fill algorithm.
- Four in a Row – A "Connect Four" clone against the computer AI player.
- Gemgem – A "Bejeweled" clone where the player swaps gems to try to get three identical gems in a row.
