I am so impressed with the hard work and careful thinking that has been demonstrated for the past two weeks during our afterschool CodeClub sessions. The children were given the opportunity to create their own computer animation / task / game rather than follow a set of provided instructions.
Ben, cl3, used this time to create an amazing game that began as a green blob being followed around the screen by black blobs. He modified his creation (edited it), corrected mistakes within it (debugged it), and then improved how it looked to end up with 'Homertron'.
It's a nod to the the original Tron film, but with a donut hunting Homer rather than lightbikes. Enjoy!
Unfortunately the embedding of the game for all to play and enjoy has been delayed whilst we investigate a bug that has appeared as the project was uploaded and transformed from a Scratch1 to a Scratch2 file.
Update: we have revised the code to version2 but know that moving in a NW direction whilst playing on a Mac causes the game to end. We're not sure why this happens, but it seems to work fine when playing on a Windows system. We think we've found a solution to this problem now, with a third revision of the code.
If the game above does not play correctly, please let us know!
