We are looking for a programmer to build a simple Windows based quiz program to be played on a laptop computer at an exhibition. The objective of the game is for each participant (player) to answer as many multiple choice questions as they can in one minute. The program can be written in any language (powerpoint, java, c, etc.) but should run as a standalone program. It should use the graphics in the attached file. Only one player plays at a time.
We will provide a list of around 20 questions with four multiple choice answers each. The program should display the question and the possible answers one at a time. The user should be able to use the keyboard or mouse to select their answer. After each selection, the program should display the correct answer and proceed to the next question until the time limit is up.
The program should keep score (+5 points for a correct answer and -2 points for an incorrect answer). It should also keep track of the time count down from 60 seconds (configurable). The game stops when the time is up.
The game loads 20 questions and answers from a CSV file (see attached). It displays each question with 4 answers on the screen and waits for player to select an answer. Questions should appear in random order and should not repeat. The answers should also be in random order to prevent someone from memorizing the order of the questions (see example below).
The program should play continuous music in the background (from a mp3 or wav file) that creates tension when each question is displayed (as in Who Wants to be a Millionaire). It should also play different sound effects when correct and incorrect answers are selected.
Randomizing feature: Question order and answer order should be randomized for each player as follows:
Q1: What colour is the sky? (A) Red (B) Orange (C) Pink (D) Blue
Q2: Who is the current US president? (A)George Bush (B) Lee Kuan Yew (C) Osama bin Laden (D) Barack Obama
Q1: Who is the current US president? (A) Osama bin Laden (B) Lee Kuan Yew (C) George Bush (D) Barack Obama
Q2: What colour is the sky? (A) Pink (B) Red (C) Blue (D) Orange
CSV file format: The question bank can be provided in the form of the attached CSV file as follows:
Question,Answer 1,Answer 2,Answer 3,Answer 4,Correct answer
Who is the current US president? ,George Bush ,Osama bin Laden ,Barack Obama ,Lee Kuan Yew ,3
What colour is the sky?,Blue,Red,Orange, Pink,1
