In this instructable I will tell you how to make a maze game ( I named it as crazy maze) :) in Scratch , a game developing software.
For first you need to download Scratch software version 1.4 by clicking on this - Scratch 1.4.
Step 1: Knowing Basic
Sprite : It is a thing or character for which you write the script.
Stage : It is the area where you see your Sprite moving.
Script area : You have to write a script by dragging the different blocks in this area and snapping it to fit into each other and is written for a sprite.
Block Palette : It is used to give instructions to the Sprite to perform a particular task.
Sprite Button : allows us to choose sprite, paint sprite and get a surprise sprite.
Green flag : block - when flag is clicked ; function - starts the script when green flag button is clicked.
Step 2: Some Block You Need to Know in Scratch for the Game
Motion Block : allows us to move sprite X no. of steps , X degree , or got to X=.. and y=..
ex : move 10 steps ( " the underline no. is the value that can be changed by programmer ").
Pen Block : makes the line in the way the sprite is moving.
ex : pen down- makes the line ; pen up - stop showing the line ; pen colour _ :this sets the colour of the line showed when pen is down.
operator : as the name suggests this block is used to operate with numbers
for example : 1 * 2
And the last but not the least
Broadcast : The Broadcast () block is a Event block and a stack block which sends abroadcast throughout the whole Scratch program. Any scripts in any sprites that are hatted with the When I Receive () block that is set to a specified broadcast will activate. This broadcast block lets scripts send broadcasts without any waits in its script (unlike the Broadcast () and Wait block). Broadcasts are a good way to have sprites and scripts communicate.
Step 3: Get Ready
Download the sprites you want , backdrops , button images , Awesome text and with your logical thinking.
You may take mine or from the internet.
open the zip file - adjust the backdrop and see how to adjust the backdrop to the best .
