Sharna Samson-Wickliffe has made her "Catch the Coins" game. She has made the coins move down the stage by using the "change y" block. Initially you had to catch all of the coins with the basket before they hit the ground. This was too easy so she added a line to the game so you are not allowed to touch the line with the basket or it is Game Over......
Abbey and Amber have made a game which looks a bit like a scrolling background game but in fact they have used the "change x" blocks to make the actors move across the stage. Help the pink sheep save the green sheep while avoiding the random logs!! See if you can beat the high score of 11......

Abbey Moberly in Hurunga 4 has spent a lot of time creating a maze game. Firstly she had to draw the maze so it would behave like an actor rather than a background. The dog has to find the right bone as the wrong bone will be Game Over. If the dog touches the maze it will automatically go back to the start position. So, which is the right bone? Tip: Move the dog with the arrow keys...
