A new Distributome Game (Game 2) is designed, implemented and serviced as a webapp on the Distributome website.
The objective of this game is to score the most amount of points by matching the given density curve with its corresponding histograms. The Game Board shows all of the possible histograms that can be matched to a given density curve. The game begins when the current density graph is revealed. At this point, the player has to find the correct histograms within the time limit. Once the time limit is reached, the corresponding histograms are flipped face down, and the next round begins with a different starting density graph.
Players receive 1 point per each correct histogram match (there are two correct histograms per density curve), and lose one point for each incorrect histogram guess. No points are awarded or deducted if nothing is selected. Each player is also awarded a score multiplier after each round. Initially, there is a score multiplier of 1x. The multiplier is doubled by choosing both of the corresponding histograms in a round. Choosing an incorrect histogram resets the multiplier back to 1x. The game ends when all graphs have been shown.
There are a number of options that can be specified by the user prior to starting the game. For instance, number of graphs (defining the number of graphs and the number of rounds to be presented), sample size (determining the sample size of the histograms), type of game (specifying the pool that the graphs will be drawn from), same speed, game difficulty, etc.
