A program with moving objects that cause the user to gain or lose points
Your program must be done in an object oriented fashion and use ArrayLists.
Your program must have at least three different types of targets that appear on the screen
Each should have its own movement pattern and image,
When an object is clicked, award points and remove the object from the game.
All of the images for the targets must be something you created yourself.
You must have one background image from any source
Show the user's current score
Show the amount of time left in seconds
The user starts with a maximum of 20 seconds (1200 frames)
When there are under 5 seconds remaining, the text should change color as a warning
Your program muse use a custom font
When Time Is Up
The image should stop moving and not respond to clicks
You should display one of three messages to the user rating their performance.
Ex: An okay score might say, "Not Bad!" while a high score would say, "Great Job"
Need advice on how to detect if the mouse is over an object?
Take a look at the concepts from Mr. M's Principles Coder's Handbook entry on Mouseover and Clicking.
Keep in mind the syntax is a little bit different, but algorithm is the same.
You can vary the design of the game substantially as long as you meet the spirit of the requirements above.
Some objects might provide negative points instead of positive points
Rather than a set time, you're stopping objects from reaching the bottom of the screen and the user loses health or lives.
Some objects take multiple clicks to defeat, but show visible progress when you click them

Option #1 - Sprites and Animation
You have at least three animations in your game. This could be a bird with flapping wings, a person walking across the screen, or an explosion.
Your animations must be implemented using a Sprite Sheet
Option #2 - Exceptional Gameplay
Your program goes way above and beyond the requirements of this project, demonstrating genuine programming complexity and polish.
Usually this means adding in new rules or more complex game systems to expand on this very basic clicker game.
