Miss Crackles has been learning to programme since we started home schooling, and her project last ‘term’ was to create a video game using Tic80 – a retro game that is based on the old console classics. So she made Waddles Saves Christmas. A heroic penguin has to rescue Santa!
The game was designed, thought up and coded by her (she did trouble shoot with her dad!) and it is really cool, You can check out the game here for yourself https://tic80.com/play?cart=1550
It is safe for kids (Mr Pickles is a big fan!) but you will need a keyboard to play it.
This has been a great experience for her, and has helped with her coding a lot. It has given her a lot of confidence in her skills to see a project come together from the beginning to the end.
