Hi Andrea,

This is a totally different approach. (project attached)

Each cookie is a turtle. Each cookie runs "eaten" many times.
When a cookie is touched by pacman it makes a sound, it
hides itself and it decreases the value of cookies, when
the variable "cookies" becomes 0, we know that every cookie
has been eaten.

The code is below:

to startup
make "cookies 7
everyone [clickon]

to eaten
if touching? who "pacman [
 make "cookies :cookies - 1

 if :cookies = 0 [
  everyone [clickoff]
  announce [next level!]
