Fast Facts Game

This project is for more experienced coders, and will be focusing on incorporating what you’ve learned in school to what you have learned with Scratch! You will be creating a game that will teach people who use it about the topic you are currently learning in school. Because this project is for intermediate or advanced Scratchers, our tutorial doesn’t walk through every step of the program; if you want a description of every piece of code, make sure to view the Scratch project linked below!

Steps:

First, upload the button sprite. Next, upload the bowl sprite. Notice that we have a black outline behind our blue button. Although this part is optional, it makes your sprite look cooler because of the shadow effect it has. To do this, left click on your sprite in the costumes tab. Then, click the duplicate option. Now you should have 2 of the same sprite. Positioning one in front of the other, color the one in the back black. Then, adjust the position so it looks like it’s only a shadow behind the other rectangle. 

Part 2: The Bowl:

For your bowl sprite, duplicate it in the costume tab so that you have 3 different bowl costumes. Then, color one green and the other red while leaving the first one brown. You’ll see why later on. The background is optional, but recommended. As stated in other projects, try to pick a neutral background that doesn’t distract people from your game. Something as simple as a plain color would work. 

Now, it’s time for the coding aspect of this project! It will be a bit challenging, so if you need help or an explanation of how to write the code, please check out our project here:

In the project linked above, there are also comments explaining each block of code, so make sure to read those if you don’t understand something.

If you have any further questions, be sure the leave a comment under the project, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can!

Go ahead and check out our project. See what it does, and try to do the same on your own. Try not to look at our code at first, and try figuring it out yourself! Of course, if you need help, you can check out the project. 

Happy Coding!
