Transcript: 17. Challenge: Bonus Points

I have an idea for how to make Bull’s Eye a bit more fun.

What if we modified Bull’s Eye to give the player an additional 100 bonus points when they get a perfect score?

This would encourage players to really try their best to place the bull’s eye right on the target. Otherwise, there isn’t much difference between 100 points for a perfect score and 98 or 95 points if you’re close but not quite there.

While we’re at it, we can give the player 50 bonus points if they’re just one off.

Implementing this will be your next Swift coding challenge! Like last time, let’s write the test together,and then your job will be to pause the video, and wrote the code so that the test passes.

Add to BullseyeTests.swift:

func testScoreExact() {
  let guess =
  let score = game.points(sliderValue: guess)
  XCTAssertEqual(score, 200)

func testScoreClose() {
  let guess = + 2
  let score = game.points(sliderValue: guess)
  XCTAssertEqual(score, 98 + 50)

OK! Now pause the video, and modify your points(sliderValue:) method so that the unit tests all pass.

Don’t forget - since your points(sliderValue:) method will now have multiple lines, you should add the return keyword back into the final line.

That’s it - go ahead and pause the video and give it a shot, and stay tuned for the solution.

func points(sliderValue: Int) -> Int {
  let difference = abs(target - sliderValue)
  let bonus: Int
  if difference == 0 {
    bonus = 100
  } else if difference <= 2 {
    bonus = 50
  } else {
    bonus = 0
  return 100 - difference + bonus
