Create games with visual coding and Scratch!
Games are not only fun to play, but a great way to learn coding and develop life-long skills in creative expression. However, learning to make them also has implications for society – as their wide audience reach makes them a great medium to educate people in enjoyable ways.
While building a game where you click objects to cleanup a beach, you’ll discover game development fundamentals for Scratch, as well as how to construct game appropriate algorithms. You’ll learn important concepts such as detecting mouse inputs, setting up tutorials, and also how to develop a scoring system with win conditions. The project will also help you practice important general coding principles as well, including variables to store data, branches, and more.
Whatever game projects you have in mind, these skills with Scratch will teach you the need-to-know foundations for building game instructions and implementing them into real-life coding projects!
This course assumes basic familiarity with Scratch.
You will learn how to:
- Make sprites interactable via clicks
- Store and manipulate a score variable
- Add logic to explain game objectives
- Set up win condition events
- Explore accessibility for mobile devices

I love the lectures, concise course objectives, and how they not only teach you enough to get started, but prepare you for the advanced stuff later down the road.
With Zenva, I started learning a more accurate way to approach problems and develop solutions. It’s full of interesting topics that I love to learn in conjunction with my work.
I chose Zenva because of the large selection of topics and the fact that I can choose what courses I want to take whenever I want to take them. That level of freedom is unique to Zenva.
The Unity courses at Zenva helped me achieve a level of comfort with game development that I didn’t think was possible. They give you the confidence to expand your skills, and were so easy to understand.
