How to Code Your Own Halloween Game

For Halloween, your students can express their creative sides by making a fun Halloween game from one of our four templates. They’ll follow step-by-step instructions to create a personalized Halloween-themed game that they can share with their parents and friends. We have tutorials for beginnerintermediate, advanced, and expert coders.

Make-O-Lantern: Beginner

Students do not need any prior programming experience to build Make-O-Lantern. This tutorial has some of the game already built and students will need to add their own assets and finish the rest of the coding. They’ll add eyes, noses, ears, and mouths for their custom jack-o-lantern.

Trick or Treat Tombs: Intermediate

This intermediate tutorial is appropriate for students with a little bit of programming experience.

Halloween Hostage: Advanced/Expert

Students can build Halloween Hostage from one of two templates. The advanced tutorial is appropriate for students with some programming experience. It has some of the game already built and students will need to debug parts of it and finish the rest. The expert tutorial is best for experienced coders and guides students through making the entire game from the ground up.
