Creating a Simple Maze Game
Here is how we create a simple maze game (from scratch). It is very basic but everything else can be added to it.
I worked on two games during this week. One was made in Scratch and the other in Twine. This is the Scratch game: Play it full screen. And this is the Twine Game (Click on the compass below):
This video shows how we can create a sprite and move it using the four arrow keys. This type of control is best for top-down games. That is game where the player is looking at the game from the top rather than from the side.
Making a sprite bounce across the screen is one of the simplest things you can do in Scratch. If you are a member of our ‘Worlds and Games’ class then you should have a look at this video and save your first project so that others in the class can see and use it.

The Maze 1
This video shows you how to create a maze game in Scratch. First we learn the code to move the sprite on the stage: With just 5 blocks of code we have learned how to make the sprite move across the stage continuously. It’s jusr a little more complicated to use your keyboard to control the movement of the sprite: How many blocks have we used this time? A computer program also known as a script is a set of…
Creating Worlds and Games
The Creating Worlds and Games course run last week at Redbridge Central Library was a joy to teach. The five children were all wonderful and produced brilliant work using Scratch and Kodu. Their parents all gave consent for images and video to be used and these, together with more examples of the children’s work, will put up over the next few days. Many thanks to Maria and Michael of the Library’s Lab Central for their invaluable support and many thanks…
These worlds were made by children Kodu Game Lab for the first time. I screen recorded and put them together as a video.
