Cat Cards is a game created with Pygame, in which the user is a wizard cat battling a hacker. The game is set up similar to rock paper scissors but with elemental cards. Before the game starts, a cyber security tip will appear on the screen.

In an increasingly tech oriented society, it is important for children to be aware of safety hazards online.

Cat Cards is designed to be a simple, easy game that is geared towards younger kids. The game is supposed to be fun and addicting. However, before you can play, a cyber security tip flashes. The tips are illustrated with fun characters to make them more compelling to read.

Figuring out how to set up the cards was extremely difficult. Because we created the cards as sprites, it took forever to figure out how to make the card show the image and number. Eventually we discovered that the sprite class could only be one thing (either a picture or a shape) so instead we made multiple sprites who's x and y locations were dependent on one of the sprites and then created a function which made the sprites stay together when the card moved.

"Cat Cards is an amazing game. Beautiful graphics!" ~Peyton B.
