Have you ever thought about how to make apps like the talking cat and other types of screen pets? Guess what, with the help of Python we can create our screen pets that can change their emotions with every click. In this article, I’ll walk you through how to create your screen pet with Python.
How to Create a Screen Pet Game?
To create a screen pet with Python, we need to know what it is and what it does. When you launch the program, the Screen Pet will be sitting there, with a small smile on its face and blinking. We’ll code our program to change the onscreen animal’s expressions from normal to happy, cheeky, or sad, depending on how you interact with it onscreen.
Below are the three features that our screen pet will perform:
- Happy Face: When you will click on it with the mouse the screen pet will blush and it will look happy.
- Cheeky Face: If you will double click it, then it will show its tongue to you.
- Sad Face: If you will ignore it then it will become sad and the point where you click then it will become happy again.
Screen Pet game is an event-based program, which means the functions it performs and the order in which it performs all functions is dependent on user input. In such programs, user input can take any form, such as keypresses and mouse clicks.
After receiving input from the user, it calls a different function to handle each function which is usually the primary function. Programs such as word processing programs, video games, and drawing programs are all examples of event-based programs.
Screen Pet with Python
Now let’s get started with the task of how to create a screen pet game with Python programming language. I will start by designing the main screen where our pet will perform all its functions. Then I will define all the functions as stated above. At last, I will put together all the functions to create a screen pet with Python. Let’s see how to code our screen pet game:
