You need to be more specific in regards to the course unit, but from the question I can give you a couple of tips.

I'm assuming you've developed a game or you are currently reviewing one. Within the game, look at code specifically and see what can be used in order to help structure of the code that will assist you.

One example would be green comments. Green comments play a huge role as you can provide a form of visual in relation to what each code means within various segments. For example, one procedure within the code may be used for the 'amount of lives', therefore labelling this with a green comment would provide some form of structure in which the designer of the game can use when looking for a problem interior to the game and if necessary make any alterations/extensions to the code.

Other points you can talk about is the use of modulars, naming of variables and even the formatting of the code. Just always make sure you're relating to the question within each point and you'll have an easy time.

Good luck.

For games, and in general how to maintain and update code easily you should research Object-Oriented Programming and Object-Oriented Design.
