Scratch Games

At seven years old, Philip is the youngest person featured in this chapter. He uses Scratch to design computer games and already has four under his belt. One of his games is a simple penalty shootout, with a brightly colored sprite to protect the goal while another shoots the ball. Philip has also written instructions and rules, which are displayed before the game starts.

It’s a great example of how creative young people can be with the Raspberry Pi, while simultaneously having fun and learning valuable programming and game design skills.

Philip explains and demos all of his games on his father’s YouTube channel at: www.youtube.com/user/MrUKTechReviews?feature=watch .
