We’ve started a pretty cool new unit after the Christmas break. It is about creating your own games and a sort of simplified version of programming. You can download it on http://www.yoyogames.com don’t worry, it’s virus free, I have it on my laptop right now! 🙂
We’ll if you’re planning on getting it, I would suggest you start with the introductory first game you find on the right side of the program when you open it. It will teach you the basics of making your very own game and how awesome that can be.
Our class made a maze after that, I didn’t like the character sprite so I made my own, it’s really easy, just save a sprite in .png format, well, that’s the only one I’ve used so far. I don’t know if it will understand any others.
Anyways, it’s really fun to use and make games in.
