2-D Adventure

2-D Adventure Series

In this series we will create a 2D adventure type game. We’ll learn about creating Sprites, moving them, and using collision detection when Sprites overlap.

Target Audience: Anyone 13+ will find benefit from this series. Younger audience can still follow along when paired with an adult. An example can be a pops/grandchild STEM weekend event!

Setup: You will need any computer with a modern internet connection. Windows, Mac, and even Chromebook will work! You actually can use a tablet but that is not recommended. Having a BrainPad is optional but highly recommended. Making a game on a PC is fun, but nothing is more engaging to learners than taking the game they made and load it on a device they are holding in their hands.

All lessons have to be done in a sequence but can be stopped at any lesson. All lessons are designed to be 20-min or learning and 40-min of lab/hands-on. See the Lesson Plans home page for details.

These presentations have embedded videos. Make sure your setup is capable of showing the embedded videos. Also be sure to look at the notes inside the presentation.
