Well, often in Etoys you need a slight shift in perspective to make the solution fit a lot better. Approaches from other systems do not always map well.

E.g., a typical approach to implement PacMan would be to have PacMan object with a script to eat peas. In Etoys it's a lot easier for each pea to have a script checking if it was eaten.

So if you could let us know, in high-level terms, what the intended behavior is, we might be able to come up with ideas how to do that in Etoys.
