Two things I'm interested in are games, and psychophysics. Given that cognitive experiments are basically games anyway (albeit, really boring ones) can we have a game that is essentially a perceptual task? After trying to program Tetris, I thought about more games and remembered Missle Command, where you have to make bearing judgements ... Long story short, here's a demo of a modified Missle Command game/task.
Many possibilities for 'attentional' manipulations here. What if a target appears from an unexpected location? What if the speed was varied and had a distribution. What if there was a probable angle for hitting the target for each of those 'cannons'?
This version of tetris was coded by me in Pygame, and uses trigonometry. Who says math isn't useful? Supply your own sound files!
