Scratch Beginners Week 4 – A Better Ghost Catcher Game

This week we improved on Martha’s original Ghost Catcher game! The notes can be found on this website as CDA-S5-Challenge_04-BetterGhostCatcher.

We animated our ghosts by creating a simple change costume script that runs forever,Season 5 Better ghostcatcher- animate ghost - costume

Season 5 Better ghostcatcher- animate ghost - Code

We made our ghosts broadcast a message when they are caught to make ghostcatcher (aka Bob) change his costume (Hint!: First, we made a new costume for Ghostcatcher Bob to make his mouth look closed!),

We also got Ghostcatcher Bob to broadcast a message that makes the stage change it’s background to each time a level is changed.

If you have any questions about all the variables, ghostscaught and speed, that you saw in my version of the program, please review the notes on this website for the previous week: CDA-S5-Week_03-Ghostcatcher.pdf. Check out the last few slides.

Thanks to Martha Fahy for all her notes so that we could really make huge progress with our Ghost Catcher game!

Have a very Happy Halloween and we will see ye all back on Saturday November 7th at 12.00!
