Taking It Further with Scratch
In this chapter, we’ve covered many fundamental concepts that are used in programming, including loops, operators, and variables. You’ve seen how you can use Scratch to design your own games, where sprites interact with each other and respond to the player’s control. You can do lots of things to customize this game. Draw your own sprites. Change the speed of the aliens each time they’re shot, or the way they move. But your next real adventure is to use Scratch and the skills learned in this chapter, perhaps with some of the other blocks we haven’t had room for, to make your very own game.
