LO- To understand how to programme costume changes for a sprite

Success criteria

1. I can design a new costume for an existing sprite

2. I can design code to switch between costumes

3. I can add appropriate effects to a costume change


Open the splat game that you created yesterday and remind yourself of the game so far.


Now watch my tutorial to learn how to add different costume changes for your sprites. 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.


1. Change the costume for the character sprite

2. Change the costume for the balloon to pop. You will need to edit this yourself using the paint tools.

3. Programme the character sprite to change costumes when it jumps

4. Programme the balloon to burst when it hits the sprite or the wall

5. Add an appropriate sound to the balloon bursting


Extension: Try duplicating one of the character sprite costumes. Can you use your own paint skills to carefully edit the character and create another costume? You could change the expression of the character or move its arms or legs for jumping and landing!
