Students can unleash their creativity when they create their own sounds, Super Mario characters, enemies, coin systems, platforms and backgrounds.
Master Interactivity & Challenges!
In this session, students will focus on their main character – Super Mario. Through learning the concepts of gravity, random and loops, students will code to make Super Mario interact with the game environment such as the enemy, princess, coins, etc. They would learn how to program obstacles (i.e. pipes) to reappear at the exact coordinate when Super Mario collides with them.
