Explorers – Building on our first game

Hi everyone,

Great to see you all there on Saturday. This weeks starting point was our game from last week. We wanted to add extra functionality. We added code to the Snowflake so that something happened when the Penguin 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 you have learned so far to create your own game.
