Walkinator is an addictive design tool game that allows you to design an online robot that walks. Use the various functions to create “feet.” Then add bones and muscles to make your robot walk. If you’ve designed it well enough, you’ll see it walking to the right. If not… well, a quivering mass of bones and muscles can be chalked up as a “learning experience” and you can try again. Note: See below game for instructions and tips.
Instructions: Start out with the Node tool to create “feet” and anchor points for your robot. Next, create bones to connect the nodes together. Bones are rigid, and cannot be controlled by your robot. Finally, create muscles to connect the nodes so that it can move. Muscles can expand and contract to move your robot’s feet. In general, it’s best to start small until you get the hang of designing. Then add more and more nodes and bones until you get something that moves efficiently.
