For this assignment, you will logically extend the functionality of the Maze Game introduced during the
lectures, via the modification of the code base as well as documentation and implementation of various
user stories. This is a paired assignment. However, in case of an exceptional situation (if the number
of students in a group is 3), the group should take special permission from the Lecturer.

Learning Outcomes Assessed
The following course learning outcomes are assessed by completing this assessment:
? Understand the significance of detailed project planning and control, good communication and
documentation and the use of appropriate tools in order to provide a quality product
? Understand the distinction between software engineering and programming, and thus the
distinction between a software configuration and a program.
? Understand the methods and techniques involved in designing, implementing and maintaining
an information system, in particular using an object-oriented approach
? Understand how unit tests are used during software development to assist in agile programming
techniques such as refactoring
? Work together in small teams to complete a fully documented, detailed design and
implementation of a small business information system
? Demonstrate skills in designing and implementing an information system
? Demonstrate skills in designing Unit tests
You are required to logically extend the functionality of the Maze Game introduced during lectures, via
the modification of the code base as well as documentation and implementation of various user stories.
You will use the Boost methodology discussed during lectures, which requires the use of pair
programming. All documentation, other than the customized game map, must be completed individually.
The code base provided for this assignment has already implemented the “warm up” and some “sets”.
You will be implementing numerous other “sets” for this assignment using the Boost methodology. The
“warm down” stage is not required.
You are free to take ideas discussed during lectures and implement these in your own version of the
code base provided in Moodle for this assignment.
This assignment will be marked according to the functionality of your code, in addition to the elegance
and extensibility of your design and the quality of your documentation.
