In this course, coders will expand their Scratch skills by designing and building a classic platform game. Platform games, like SuperMario Bros. and Donkey Kong, involve a player who jumps over, on, or between platforms. Coders will revisit some of the computer science concepts they learned in the ‘My Story’ and ‘Choose Your Own Adventure” courses and they will learn new game-making concepts like basic player movement, scorekeeping, collectibles, and building multiple levels. At the end, learners will design start and end screens for their new video games!
