IMG_7273

and then decided to create a Barbershop game 😉

IMG_7274

IMG_7275

Kinan created lots of sprites because the game needs lots of customers 😉

Always glad to have this kids come back to learn 🙂 Kinan didn’t feel well, so we had these boys and one little girl in this class today 🙂

IMG_6800

Abiel wanted to continue his Baldy Game today

IMG_6795

Abiel searched some references for his game, including the sounds

IMG_6803

 

Halfway to go, Abiel, now create the room 🙂

IMG_6805

IMG_6810

IMG_6813

For the next milestone, Abiel has to type in codes and he hasn’t finished yet. Will continue this the next class 😉

IMG_6818

Abiel had finished a milestone of the game that we called: Mr. Baldy Hide and Seek 😀 And Aisha loves to play it 😀

 

IMG_6817

While Justin still had lots of things he wants to improve 😉

IMG_6796

Justin didn’t like to see his sprites being trimmed on the edge of the screen (things that most people won’t notice :D)

IMG_6804

IMG_6806

This shows how detail Justin is doing his work: he created 16 images for one sprite to make it animate smoothly 🙂

IMG_6798

so Justin decide to rearrange the whole thing and change the wall sprites and layout

IMG_6814

IMG_6816

Now everything is just like Justin wanted 🙂

IMG_6819

it’s because Justin created different wall sprites for the corners, the uppers, the lowers and those on the left and the right sides, oh my 😀

IMG_6820

aaanddd we had a guest: Aisha, Abiel’s little sister 🙂

IMG_6799

This little one was doing her homework 🙂

IMG_6808

IMG_6809

Aisha’s mom taught her some reading using cards

Kinan made some simple animation and see how they looked when the animation played. She is going to add the animation to her game 🙂

IMG_5859

IMG_5860

IMG_5866

Justin was still very seriously developing his Maze Game 🙂

IMG_5853

 

Well good game creators are those who pay attention into details 🙂

IMG_5855

IMG_5857 IMG_5858

The sprites and the objects number is growing 😀

IMG_5863 IMG_5865

Our weekly midweek awesome activity 😉

IMG_5390

IMG_5391

Kinar forgot to bring her laptop charger and none of us has the same type so she had to use our Macbook and learn GameMaker Studio 🙂

IMG_5382

So Kinan created new sprites 🙂

IMG_5384

IMG_5392

IMG_5394

IMG_5396

GameMaker Studio 2 has more features and library compared to GamaMaker Lite but it also has more complex GUI and toolbar 🙂

IMG_5399

IMG_5400

While Abiel had to split his time between creating games and downloading antivirus because apparently some malware had been slowing his computer down 🙂

IMG_5383

IMG_5385

Abiel wanted to create a rocket and put it in the game 🙂

IMG_5397

IMG_5402

Justin still very delicately develop the Maze Game

IMG_5386

He wanted the sprites and the room to be as similar as the reference 🙂

IMG_5388

Justin had created more levels and next week he will learn how to create an object that will watch the score and make the game move to the next level once it reaches a certain score 🙂

IMG_5395

IMG_5401

IMG_5403

The most important thing about learning is that you are having fun in the process 🙂 Will add more features and complexity to the game next week! 🙂

Abil

and Kinan learned intro to computer science by learning python programming with CodeCombat 🙂

IMG_3639 IMG_3641 1

They had to go through levels and finish the challenge on each level

Bildschirmfoto 2018-08-30 um 12.28.32 PM

Each kid should take their time to finish each level on their own pace 🙂 The most important thing is they understand the basic and logics of programming 🙂

Bildschirmfoto 2018-08-30 um 1.22.07 PM

Next class we will be ready to create some games 🙂
