Students follow a step-by-step tutorial to design their own playable game. Friendly drag-and-drop tools make it simple to add new platforms, villains, and more. Advanced students can add new levels, or even a boss battle!
Students will use their creativity and coding skills to create a fun, playable game in the style of Super Mario. When they're done with this tutorial, encourage them to get creative. Students can add new levels, new powerups, or even new moves for their hero.
