This week, the challenge in Beginners’ Scratch was to write your own version of the classic Breakout game.
This game uses lots of the big ideas that we have encountered in previous weeks, and that are good to know about when preparing to get yellow belts. These big ideas include:
- Loops and Decisions
- Variables and Broadcasts
- Making Sprites Move
- Animation and Sound
Here are my notes from the day (PDF format): CDA-S2-Challenge09-BrickGame.pdf
Here is my version of the game: http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/cdathenry/2964870
