Great to see so many of you there on Saturday. This weeks starting point was our game from last week. We wanted to add extra functionality. We added code to the Heart so that something happened when the Hippo touched it. Most people added some sound.
We also made our first variable. We did this so that we could keep track of our score. Using this score we also could add code to make something happen when you reached a certain score and win the game. Again here we added a sound and switched backgrounds.
We learned and used a lot of new code this week and we will see over the coming weeks how we can incorporate it into many different types of games.
Why don’t you try using all the code we have used so far to create your own game. We will take time at the beginning of next weeks session to look at any games that people want to show us.
See you all next week!
Here are the notes from todays session in PDF CDA-S5-Week_02-FirstGame-Part2.pdf
