Another great week, a lot of work was done in the Explorers room. Hope you all had fun making our Maths game!
A player picks a level of difficulty and the computer chooses 2 random numbers to add (subtract or multiply- whichever you choose!) together and show the numbers to the player. Fr this we needed 2 SPRITES and 4 VARIABLES called SCORE, LEVEL, NUMBER1 and NUMBER2 as well as 2 BACKDROPS.
We repeated the ask/answer questions 5 or 10 times. Can you figure out where the REPEAT loop fits?
We also had a second sprite who reacted positively to correct answers BROADCAST and negatively to wrong answers BROADCAST. You can use whatever sprites you like and change their look whatever way you like. One coder added a puppy as their second and had him bark whenever an answer was correct.
After all the questions were asked we had the 1st Sprite SAY – Game Over! and BROADCAST Game over so that the backdrop changed and music played. There are two ways to change the backdrop- see below! Here are this weeks notes in PDF CDA-S7-Week_3_18-MathsGame.pdf
Also I have uploaded the finished game to the www.Scratch.mit.edu website, just use the login details in the notes.
See you next week
