Code RETRO GAMES
About THis class
in this sparkiverse-only class, coding meets the real world of game building.
There’s nothing more fun than learning about coding while building your own video game. We’re using a NEW tool this semester for our Retro Game Building - Stencyl! Tt’s great for new or previous Game Building students. Using popular drag-and-drop programming makes building games easier for students, but still teaches the principals of coding and breaking down processes into logical instructions.
In this class, students start by coding pre-built games with BitsBox to get their creative juices flowing. Then they will ideate and mock up their game before building it online in Stencyl. Through this game creation, students develop a working understanding of the world of coding as they see their creations come to life.
