What are environmental interactions? Does adding grass that moves when the player touches it in a nature-themed game count?
Really late reply, but I believe environmental interactions are more like picking up an apple from a tree in the background or not being able to go past a rock bigger than the sprite. I could be wrong, but that was how I interpreted it when I did Game On.

Question; how complicated does the game us usually need to be to win? And are there any examples? Also, how do you find music since you can't download any and the libary aren't good (choppy)
Yeah, I see your point. However, to save time it is best using library music.
If you want smooth bg music, I have found that using sound bytes underneath the loops section seems to work best.
THen if you write

repeat forever:
play sound [] until done

it should play music smoothly

Environmental interactions are how uc or cc sprites interact with the bg.
For example, if a ball bounces off of platforms, that would be environmental interaction

Question: would having the character bounce off walls be environmental interactions?
This is what I’ve always done and gotten full points, but suddenly I got a 0 for that in 1 invitational and I was wondering if that was me or something that maybe the grader didn’t completely understand or consider.

I think this could be considered to be an environmental interaction, but I could see someone debating that. If you want easier points, consider having the sprite interact with the background. Alternatively, you could make a comment on the wall bouncing code, saying something like "this is my intended environmental interaction." Then it's unambiguous and the grader can decide whether they agree.

That’s good advice— I actually did comment that with the specific wording, but I guess the grader didn’t consider it as interaction or something (which I was upset on.... I was stuck in 4th place and 3rd got a medal).
What would you really consider as a Sprite interaction with a background? I was thinking like maybe it could bust clouds or something?
