Game Design: MakeCode Arcade

Students will learn to develop a their own video game using Microsoft MakeCode Arcade.

This is some text inside of a div block.

About this course

This innovative software gives students a much richer ability within its more limited graphics. MakeCode Arcade has things like level editors, which Scratch lacks.  It is also easier to teach basic game design concepts and another cool thing missing from Scratch is that you can easily switch from blocks to JavaScript. So, it is easier in MakeCode to transition to real programming.

What you'll learn

  • Fundamentals of game design and programing
  • Loops, if/else statements, variables and arrays
  • A top-down shooting game like Galaga  
  • A multi-level maze game  
  • A scrolling platformer game
