The included code and white paper provides a parallel solution for enumerating the total number of possible wins, losses, and draws for a two-person strategy game. A Cat and Mouse move on a directed graph; the Cat attempts to catch the Mouse, while the Mouse attempts to occupy a goal node within the maximum number of moves allowed. The solution to this problem makes use of the A* heuristic search algorithm. Parallelism is achieved using Intel Cilk Plus.
Discuss engineering design process using game design as example. Discuss the importance of computer performance to animation and game execution. Use the Intel Destroy of Castle Demo to show the power of multi-cores.
This version of Destroy the Castle was created to show how to parallel such a game application using OpenMP Tasks. The project is built using Intel(R) Parallel Studio Composer compiler.
This is only a short notice to let you know that the IT Manager 3: Unseen Forces game has just added a new facets to its gameplay:
- A whole new -- and secret! -- floor with new puzzles
- Core intelligence with all new hardware parts!
