Christmas Games. The children have been planning, designing and creating a Christmas theme platform game. To do this they used 2DIY3d, a Purple Mash tool.
There is quite a lot involved in creating a computer game which is not too hard or too easy and will keep the user interested. First the children played examples of different types of platform games created by Mr Sheerin and discussed the features such as the aim, how you lose, length, lives, use of obstacles and graphic design . Next they made changes to features to make the games easier or harder, this was how they began to understand how the game was created. Then they learnt how to make their own maze and change graphics to add a Christmas theme. Finally they wrote and added instructions before putting it to the test, making changes to improve its play-ability. Some games had three levels?
When they were finished the children in Yr2 where invited into the ICT Suite to play the Christmas games.
