Designing a small game

Your task is to design a small interactive game using the world package in Racket (i.e. the big-bang function that we have used in class). For example, you may use a "create your own adventure" approach or write a small game that tests the user's attention and reaction. The user may be interacting with the game by clicking or by mouse movements or by pressing keys or choosing options (or any combination thereof).

Your game should be simple: remember that implementing even simple features takes time. Be creative: a simple good idea is better than design that's too involved.
