The Game “Man Down 100 floors” is an famous and interesting game.You can enjoy the game from
We take a simplified version of this game. We have only two kinds of planks. One kind of the planks contains food and the other one contains nails. And if the man falls on the plank which contains food his energy will increase but if he falls on the plank which contains nails his energy will decrease. The man can only fall down vertically .We assume that the energy he can increase is unlimited and no borders exist on the left and the right.
First the man has total energy 100 and stands on the topmost plank of all. Then he can choose to go left or right to fall down. If he falls down from the position (Xi,Yi),he will fall onto the nearest plank which satisfies (xl <= xi <= xr)(xl is the leftmost position of the plank and xr is the rightmost).If no planks satisfies that, the man will fall onto the floor and he finishes his mission. But if the man’s energy is below or equal to 0 , he will die and the game is Over.
Now give you the height and position of all planks. And ask you whether the man can falls onto the floor successfully. If he can, try to calculate the maximum energy he can own when he is on the floor.(Assuming that the floor is infinite and its height is 0,and all the planks are located at different height).
