Lesson 3 & 4 - Create your own game of pong
Make sure you have Scratch downloaded on your computer version 1.4 (link button at the top of this page). Next download my scratch game file on the right called (aaess_game_ of pong.sb) file and play Pong. Can you adjust the scripts and sprites and work out how to make the ball go faster.
Study how I have adjusted the scripts to the Sprites.
Can you alter the colour of the ball, the size of the ball and Paddle and change the background image of the wall to something you created.
Below is the Script you need to write for the moving the ball around the screen.
Below is the script you need to write for moving the Paddle around the screen.
This is what the game should look like. Blue ball, yellow paddle and brick wall background. Have a go !
