Rainbow Boss HARD by Brodie

This unique boss fight has a boss that shifts colors and fires lines and shapes at the player. You only get to attack once every several seconds, so the difficulty is very high.

Defeat the boss and his minions by clicking to fire lasers. Make sure you don’t stay in the center of the screen.

Sofie and Zunair were our Featured Makers this week! Sofie is a future vet who loves gaming and creating games! Zunair makes hilarious food-centric projects; he sweetly told us, “I’m always happy with what I have!”

We also posted this article about a small school district in East Texas that has implemented Tynker. Kyle Ivey, Instructional Technology Director of the district and author of the blog post, said, “Tynker allows us to provide all students a curriculum to develop and/or hone the skills needed to be successful in 21st century learning“
