  • Ben Programmed PacMan

    Posted on June 12th, 2012 Sallie 2 comments

    Try out Ben’s new PacMan games, programmed in Scratch. Use your arrow keys to move Pac Man around to eat all the red pills and gain points. The larger blue power up pills allow you to eat ghosts for a period of time while they are flashing. They are worth lots more points!  Any other time PacMan loses a life if a ghost touches him.  He has three lives, and then the game is over.  Beware, the ghosts get faster each time you clear the screen of red pills.

    NOTE:  The games start automatically so you’ll need to press the stop sign icon in the upper right to pause them.  Make sure you stop one so the other will play faster.

    The first version has a special feature.  When you loose your three lives and game ends, you can start it again and the score will add on to your previous game score.  It’s like when you can put in more coins and continue play on an arcade game.  If you really want to start over at zero, you can do that by pressing the Reset Score button.

    The second version, PacMan Extreme doesn’t offer that feature.

    We want to know your high score in the second game, so leave us a comment!

  • Ben’s First Video

    Posted on May 28th, 2012 Sallie 2 comments

    Tonight Ben introduces you to the world of Minecraft, a cube-based video game world that all of the Draper boys enjoy exploring.  He recorded this video himself using his tablet.  You’ll need to crank up your audio settings in order to hear his narration.  Next time he’ll talk louder! 😀

  • Pink … the Verb

    Posted on May 22nd, 2012 Sallie No comments

    2012 has been the year of PINK in the Draper household.

    But I don’t meant the sweet color.  Nope, we’re talking the verb pink which means to pierce or punch (thinking PINKing shears).  My boys, led by Luke, have taken pinking to mean poking and our lives are full of surprise pokes constantly.

    In honor of this irritating tradition, we’ve declared today PINK haiku day.  Here’s an Ode to PINK x5 Drapers.

    Benjamin –

    Red and white makes pink
    Pink is very annoying
    ‘Cause my brother pokes

    Luke –

    Pinking is poking
    I like to pink my brother
    Because he pinks back

    Stanley –

    Oh Luke, my brother
    How I detest this pink thing
    Which you invented

    Kevin –

    Not only a noun,
    Pink is also a verb.
    Luke, stop pinking me!
