# Help me with a scoring system?

so im wokring on a small project and im super stuck. How do I added a scoring system?

so there is a mouse (animal) that’s on the mouse(pc)

and I want him to collect cheese trough the game.

Now I’m wondering what the best way to do this is?
Im still a beginner and this coding confuses me a lot.

(also this is polly the worst coding you’ve ever seen)

I hope you guys can help me out?
any other ideas are welcome ofc!!

EDIT: I didn’t read your question well. I thought you were asking how to create variables. I didn’t notice you already know how to do it

if you want to create a scoring system you need to create a variable. I recommend int. it stands for Integer and is a simple variable. It only accepts whole numbers and its range is quite big -2^32 to +2^32(~ 10^10 or a billion).

You define a variable by entering the variable type. (int, float, char, String, ArrayList, boolean,…) simple variables are those that start with lower case (int, float, char, boolean,…).

``````int i = 15;
float c = width;
int score = 0;
``````

structure:
[type] [name] = [value]

by the way could you write what this program is supposed to do?

Aahh okay! thanks for the help!

Well the ‘player’ (mouse), needs to collect the cheese on screen. and with every cheese a point needs to be added

Do you have a way to determine if the mouse eats the cheese?

no not yet, I have nu clue how to do it either

are both shapes spheres?

I think so? im not sure

if they are both circle you can try using (blured if you want to do it on your own)

``````if(dist(x,y,x2,y2) < r1 + r2) {
x2 = random(width)
y2 = random(height)
score++;
}
``````

ohh okay! thank you so much for the help!!

I just realized that if I gave you an example like circle(x,y,2*r) you would get used to it and continue to do it this way instead of doing it the lazy way where int r (radius) is actually d (diameter, d = 2 * r)

aahhh okay! thanks!!
