Celebrate and Create – with Leprechauns!
What’s better than playing games? Making them! With Tynker’s powerful creativity tools, kids can make games that are as fun as the ones they love to play. Kids learn beginner to advanced programming concepts as they create side-scrollers, platformers, arcade and 2-player games, and so much more.
Show your young coders a cool example of what they can quickly create with code as they play our St. Patrick’s Day coding game, made with our Level Editor tool. Remix the project to extend the game with new levels!
Catch the Leprechaun
The Level Editor tool makes it easy for kids to create immersive 2D worlds of their own and quickly add all the elements they need for a great game: actors that jump, flip, and fight; enemies and boss characters; immersive scenes; scrolling backgrounds (levels); scorekeeping; health points; and more.
As kids think about how to make their game great, they put logic and programming concepts into action. Because it’s fun to use the Level Editor tool to experiment and see what happens, kids successfully create the games they want to play and are motivated to make the game their own. A proven way to build kids’ confidence with coding – over 60 million kids have gotten started in this way!
After a few basic Tynker lessons, it’s easy for kids to get started with the Level Editor using our step-by-step guide. To begin creating, students just go to their projects, click “Create,” and look for the Level Editor/Code toggle at the top of the screen.
- “Level Editor” mode: add backgrounds, platform tiles, heroes and villains, scorekeeping widgets, and new levels
- “Code” mode: adjust behaviors, add logic to switch levels, and customize game actions
