SlugSmasherMy company sent me to a semester of Java classes this year. I’m really glad they did because it opened up a whole new world for Processing experimenting (being that it is based off of Java) as well as writing better JavaScript code. The class projects were all in workbook with answers, so I wanted to challenge myself and create something that didn’t have the answers. So I created this simple slug smasher game in Processing, while pretty much writing the whole thing in Java. I then hooked it up to an Arduino button as a control. Press the button, and the boot drops down to catch the slug and smash it.
