So now, we are making games, and this weeks game is to create a chase game. I started out by looking at all of the sprites you can use on scratch. Okay so many you dont know what a sprite is so if you dont click HERE, and if you dont know what scratch is click HERE. So now we should all be on the same page, so when I was looking at the sprites I saw some cheese puffs, and I saw a dragon, and thought that maybe I could have 2 things that want cheese puffs, and have the player play for one, and try to get the puffs before the dragon. I found a cat, and that was gonna be player one, but I couldn't figure out how to make the cheese puffs appear and disappear after the cat touched it, so I just decided to ignore the whole cheese puffs thing.
I made a total of three games, and each of them are different in there own way. In my game of chase there is a dragon chasing a cat in a yard scene. In my Platformer game, I have a Weird looking glob thing trying to get to the bananas. And in my freedom game, I have a penguin trying to catch all of the christmas presents.
In scratch I had a lot of challenges, But one of my most difficult bug fixes was when I was working on my chase game, I couldn't figure out how to make my cat to move with the arrow keys, when I clicked the right arrow it went left, when I clicked the left arrow it went right, when I clicked up it went down, when I clicked the down arrow, it went up. Even though there were a lot of stressful bug fixes tat I needed to do, When I was working on my platformer game, I was basically finished, but then I thought that it would be kind of cool if I could make my bananas Disappear, then reappear in a different location after the first level was passed. As I was typing into google "how to make a scratch disappear, and reappear in a different location", I stopped myself, because I wanted to figure this out on my own, without google. After about 5 minutes, I got it to do exactly what I wanted, and I was so happy that it worked.
