    Default Open Answer Quiz Game


    Firstly, I want to say thank you for viewing my question, and I would be very respectful for any help.

    I want to design an open-answer quiz game using Java. I would also like to confess that I have absolutely NO experience in Java programming, or any programming experience for that matter (I'm really really sorry), and due to the urgent nature of the job, I need to get this quiz created ASAP.

    Basically, the plan is to design a quiz where the name of a medicine is displayed as "the question" and the player will need to input the unique code (as "the answer") of the medicine in an open box (all the codes are two characters). The list has about 204 named medicine (with potentially more to be included at a later stage). The questions will not appear in the same order for each session restarted; they will appear randomly.

    The player will have 60 seconds, and for each correct answer, will score 1 point and add 2 seconds to the timer. The player will also have 6 "lives", and for each incorrect answer, the player will lose a life, with no effect on the time.

    The idea of the game is to help the player memorise as many of these medicine codes as possible.

    I wanted to ask if anyone could offer me friendly and helpful guidance on how this can be achieved from total grassroots. Nothing fancy is needed, just basic engineering to achieve the job.

    Any help would be greatly respected.

    Thanks, :-D

    Here's where to start: The Javaâ„¢ Tutorials

    Skip over 'What's New' and go straight to 'Trails Covering the Basics'

    If you're forever cleaning cobwebs, it's time to get rid of the spiders.

    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    You were assigned an urgent programming job with zero experience in programming? That doesn't sound right.

    You have to self study to learn programming; while not impossible, you need time and a lot of effort.
    The java tutorials will be confusing at best. You need an introductory book or even a course to programming. Find one that uses Java and best of luck.

    I cannot think of any other guidelines to give you with zero domain knowledge.
