Test your coin skills

I have made an application where you can practice paying, or giving change, with coins.

I have called it Money Master, but if anyone can think of a better name, feel free to suggest.

As it is brand new, there will probably be bugs, so feel free to tell me about them or any suggestions.

And the cool thing: I have included 4 different currencies (the 4 most common countries to visit the site). Took me half a day for each currency to get the coins looking right - it is harder than it appears.

Re: Test your coin skills

Yes, this is good for kids learning about money.

Only thing: my twenty cent and five cent pieces disappeared in a couple of the exercises, which made it particularly hard considering the item costed $3.05.

I was playing the Australian version.

Also, I clicked Options, Choose another currency, and all of the coins I put in the tray were still there.

I also ended up being able to use all currency at the same time (see picture).

Re: Test your coin skills

Thanks, jl!

Those are the typical problems I wade through with Flash - the correct creation and removal of objects. I will work on it.

Re: Test your coin skills

When a coin is removed from the 'counted area', it stays wherever you put it.
It's possible for it to overlap with a 'money source', which can be confusing.
Any coins removed in that way disappear when you make the required amount, but until then they clutter up the game.


Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.
