Pursuit of hat 2
With wonderful graphics and animations which look like they have come straight from a Dr Seuss book, ‘Pursuit of hat 2’ is a logical puzzle game which will really challenge your ability to sequence instructions appropriately. This is a really important thinking skill, particularly given the curricular shift towards computational thinking. The idea behind the game is pretty simple – your character has lost his hat and needs you to move him around his world to get it back. Things will get a little more complicated than this sounds!
Instructions: Simply use the arrow keys on your keyboard to guide your character around the screen. At times you may need to press the space bar in order to rip off a limb – a pretty extreme measure to get a hat back but hey, it is a nice hat!
Learning objective: To develop skills in sequencing instructions (an important element of computational thinking).
(i) What strategies did you develop to help you successfully complete levels?
(ii) What situations in real life require you to follow a series of steps in the correct sequence in order to complete a task?
