1. Maze Game

Below is the code that was used to program the famous Scratch cat to move around the purple maze. Anyone with a keyboard can play their game!

2. Baseball Catch Game

Here’s how this young programmer made sound effects a part of their game! Sound adds an extra layer to any game and making it more interesting to the player.

 

3. Hedgehog Run

The code below dictates that when the hedgehog sprite touches any of the icons with the dark purple border, the game ends!

Here, each of the 3 sprites turn in 15 degree increments, making a really cool and unique design.
