Retro Racer

Reach the flag to win! In this race against time, you’ll use the level editor to create your own Platformer game. Just design your own obstacle course, then compete for glory! Here’s a tip: Collect a ring and get 5 added seconds!

Platform Peril

In this arcade classic, you’ll use the level editor to create your own Platformer game by stomping on the baddies to get coins. Then, you can invent your own power-ups, bad guys, and more. Want a tip? Use obstacles, info, and props to make a more adventurous game. 

Outlast the Onslaught

Score 10,000 points to win the game! That is if you can defeat the enemy ninjas. And remember, each coin that you collect along the way will give you an extra 100 points. Tip! Place a Door actor in your world, then imagine and design the next level on your own.

Why Tynker?

Gamified story-based courses and activities make learning how to code fun. And when kids are having fun, they’re more motivated to complete projects and even create coding projects of their own.

Meanwhile, as young coders empower their creativity by bringing their ideas and imagination to life, they’re also developing their critical thinking and problem-solving skills, as well as their focus, organization, and time management.
