Computing

LO- To understand how to programme using scratch

Success criteria

  1. I can draw a background using blocks to make a maze.
  2. I can select and change a character (sprite).
  3. I can program commands that control the movement of a sprite.
  4. I can program consequences for specific actions.

 

Click the link below (or on the tab on the left 'Scratch' to access the game and

play this for a short time to understand this. The aim of the game is to reach the green exit without touching the obstacle.

https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/57805794/

Once you have played this consider the questions:

  • How does the user make the character move?
  • What happens if a red obstacle is touched?
  • What happens when the green exit is reached?

 

Now watch my tutorial to understand how to make a maze game. You can watch the tutorial the whole way through or pause when suggested and work alongside the video. I have added the coding used for the game as a resource to download

if you need some extra help.

 

 

 

 

Tasks

  1. Design a backdrop with obstacles and an exit
  2. Add a sprite for your games
  3. Programme your sprite to move left, right, up and down when using the appropriate keys
  4. Programme the sprite to move back when it touches the obstacle
  5. Programme the sprite to say something once it reaches the exit  

 

Extension: Suggest 3 ways you could improve your game. Can you identify the code that would be needed for these improvements?
