It’s not as impossible as some may believe, but this game is extremely difficult! The red block follows your cursor, so time it correctly and you can get past the blue circles.

On the Blog

Our Featured Maker this week is Pranay. He loves to code with his friends Asher and Zunair, both of whom were featured on the Tynker blog, too! “I like to make games,” he told us, “and I like that people actually like my games! That makes me want to make more.”

Cross Creek Elementary was this week’s Featured School! They are using Tynker to integrating coding and robotics into their curriculum. Coding & Robotics Teacher Michele Dechman told us, “Coding is a way for students to realize that mistakes are okay, and that through dedication and perseverance, there are other ways to reach success.” We agree!

Don’t miss our newest release, Crystal Clash! We took to the blog to explain the gameplay and what kids learn as they advance in this immersive multiplayer battle game.

Keep contributing to the Tynker community! Parents and teachers can connect with us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and the Tynker Community Forum. Kids can also start learning to code and creating for free with the Tynker app for iPads!
