Introduction: Scratch Game
Easy 15 step scratch game.
Step 1: Go to Scratch.com. Then you will want to log in (in the top right hand corner) or register an account.
At the very top of your screen you are going to want to click the create tool. Then it should bring you to a new area to create the game. Here is a picture if you are having trouble.
After you have pressed create you then should be at a page that looks like this.
For this game we are going to want to pick a sprite. The sprite is your character and it is going to have most of the code on it. The thing surround in blue is how you get a sprite.
So as you can see when you hover your mouse over top of the sprite button, there are tons of other options. For this project you will want to click the one that looks like a magnifying glass.
So after you open the search sprite tab we will now see tons of sprites/characters that we can choose from. Just for the fact that I want to make this as easy as possible for you guys, I recommend picking the same sprites as I do. Just so it doesn't make it as confusing. So now, select the sprite Named trisha. If you cant find it by scrolling then if you look in the top left corner you will see a search menu and type “Trisha” and she should come up.
Now that we have our sprite we can get started on the background of the game. This will allow us to make our sprite go through obstacles and levels. So on the right hand side of your screen the should be just like you chose your sprite but one that looks like a backdrop to something. If you hover over that then you will click the magnifying glass looking thing.
So now you should be on a screen just like this.
Now we can get started on designing the background for the game. We are going to just make a simple design for our character to run and jump over some obstacles. You can just copy my screenshot. Yours does not have to be exactly the same but try and match the colors and shapes as best you can to make it easier.
First click the circled blue button
Here is a video on all the color’s i use and how to make the box for the game. There is no audio for the first 2 don't have audio so try and follow the mouse.
Now we are going to want to create an obstacle so first we are going to make a new sprite.
Ok watch this video to make the obstacle.
Ok now watch a video to get our obstacle to move around.
Ok so now we are going to want to put the code on our character, to make her move around and beat the level so watch this video to get the step by step process
Now we are going to make it so that she can beat the game/ level Watch this video
If you have trouble following the instructions here is a google doc with every thing.
