Hi All,

 

 

New Gaming Program.  ad supported.  www.sploder.com    free and you can sign up, but you don't have to unless you want to save your games.   I'm using this a precursor to scratch web 2.0.   It teaches the basic steps to create a game, but from a child's perspective.

 

1)   Make a game/level  in Retro Arcade.

2)  Press play. (the character falls into oblivion.

3)  Retry, but add ground.  Have the characters try again ... lives

4)  Add gold coins, powerbars, obstacles,  monsters, tunnels, vehicles 

5)  Test Again... At this point kids have loaded every monster into the game that they can think of.  It becomes too hard. so the kids go back and redesign... delete monsters  to be a more fluid gaming experience

6)  Have others play your game and give critiques,  fix.

7) Have your teacher play the game.

8)  Try a game.

 

Have fun.
