Video Game Coding – Arcade Sidescrollers
Don’t just play video games, make them! Learn to create a platform style, sidescrolling video game in HTML5, like Super Mario Bros, using introductory graphical programming software. Students will have the option to choose characters and game objects from a clip art library or create their own characters. Student-created games can played on any mobile device or computer (or uploaded online). The Firefox Web Browser is recommended for running the HTML5 game Apps after they are finished. Students will bring home their class creations on a flash drive at the end of the course.
