Scratch Games - Save the Bird


Easy way of learning Scratch programming is to create Games in Scratch. I will show you how to create a game in Scratch. In this game you will see a bird flying across the screen, it will randomly  lay droppings. You need to prevent the droppings from falling on the ground. There is a dustbin on the ground which you can move using the Right and the Left Arrow keys. Follow the bird for 30 seconds and collect the droppings as best as you can. If the droppings hits the ground, a lightening strikes at random location, it may hit the bird, and the game stops. If you manage to keep the bird alive for 30 seconds, you win.

Scratch Games - Breaking Watermelons

Let us learn Scratch by creating a small yet interesting and engaging game. We will use the available sprites in the Sprites library. We will need two sprites one that of a Watermelon and another that of a stone/ rock. Both the images are available in the library.

The stone/ rock sprite has only one image in it. The watermelon sprite has three images. I have duplicated half melon image and edited it so as to look like two pieces of a Watermelon that has broken due to impact.

And the letters Reset to original location if you press Spacebar.
