Week 5 – Explorers– Improved Ghostcatcher game

Hi again everyone,

This week we improved on our Ghostcatcher game from last week.

We introduced a new concepts which we haven’t used before, animation and next week we will start another new concept which is broadcasting.

Using a simple technique of changing between costumes and having a waiting time we can animate our Sprites. In our case, we animated the Ghosts so they were blinking or sticking out their tongue. You could of course use this technique to have a sprite look like they are walking etc.

Hope you all enjoyed the session and we will be using animation and broadcasting over the next couple of months.

Here are this weeks notes in PDF  cda-s6-week_05-betterghostcatcher.pdf

Hope to see you all again next week

Martha
