Ms. Squire Notes

Think about this


Name your game following this format: Game Name, Team Name

Share your game.

Your game/level will be assessed based on the following. You have until April 21st to make changes to your game/level.

  • Functionality: Does the game work? 
  • Visual Design: What does the game look like?
  • Gameplay: Are goals and objectives clear? Are game mechanics successful? 
  • Programming: Sprites behave as expected. There are obstacles that the sprite can interact with. The level has an appropriate ending. Level has sound effects and background music.
  • Engagement: Is the game fun to play?

You can find a script for basic platformer mechanics in this Scratch project:

Today we will be exploring how Scratch can be used to code a platform game. 

Your company's goal today will be to:

  1. Create a user account for each team member at
  2. Each person will create a Scratch program that begins with the sprite in the middle of the screen and moves the sprite left, right, up and down using keyboard commands. (See hints below)
  3. Explore more advanced techniques here:


  • To start in the middle, set x and y coordinates to 0,0
  • You have to create two variables, X velocity and Y velocity. These variables will be initially set to 0.
  • Add smooth velocity ( 'x velocity' x 0.9)

You are going to analyze 3 online platform games. You will have 60 minutes total to analyze the games (20 minutes for each game). For each game analysis, one team member will play the game while the other two team members complete the game analysis form.

You will also sketch a level from one of the games.

Choose 3 of the following games to analyize.
