Scratch 2.0 allows anyone with no prior coding knowledge to make games. In this course, Making Games in Scratch 2.0, you'll find yourself having just as much fun making games as you will playing them. This is the sequel to Pluralsight’s "Start Coding in Scratch 2.0" course. All the principles of coding learned in the first course will be put to use in this games course. With your knowledge of Scratch 2.0, you'll make several exciting games. First you'll create Fetch-bot, a collection game, DeBugs, a game where you try to get rid of as many bugs as you can in sixty seconds and Emoji-Pong for two, a game for two players. Next, you'll create Robo-Eel, a tribute to the arcade game Snake and Emoji-Pong with Artificial Intelligence, a pong game against the computer Finally, you'll wrap up the course by learning how to make Circuit-Breakers, a tribute to the arcade game Space Invaders, Gear Hunter, a collection and avoidance game, Planetoids, a tribute to the arcade game Asteroids, and Floppybot, a tribute to the famous app Flappy Bird. By the end of this course, you'll have learned how to create many different types of games using no coding skills.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Mario Macari, and welcome to my course, Making Games in Scratch 2. 0. I'm a graphic designer, coder, freelancer, college professor, and Pluralsight author. I've been working with graphic design, coding, and game making for a long, long time, and have been creating art and interactions with computers for most of my career. I have also been teaching for many of those years. I hope you will enjoy this course and sign up for Pluralsight. com. As a professor, I can tell you Pluralsight. com has some of the best courses out there. In this course, we'll make games in Scratch 2. 0, a really great online and offline development platform where you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations and share your creations with others in the online community all with a drag and drop block programming language. We'll make nine exciting games in this course, Fetchbot, a collection game, Emoji Pong for two, a pong game for two players, Debugs where you try to get rid of as many bugs as possible in 60 seconds, RoboEel, which is a tribute to the arcade game, Snake, Emoji Pong with artificial intelligence, a pong game against the computer, Circuit Breaker is a tribute to the arcade game, Space Invaders, Gear Hunter, a collection and avoidance game, Planetoids, a tribute to the arcade game, Asteroids, and finally, Floppybot, a tribute to the famous app, Flappy Bird. By the end of this course, you will have built nine Scratch games. You can use that experience to create your own games. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to code games with this free course from the wonderful folks, at Pluralsight. Welcome to Making Games in Scratch 2. 0.

Stage 1 Games
In this module, we start building really cool games. We'll start by building a game called Fetchbot and learn cloning techniques. Next, we'll create a game called Debugs where we try to find as many bugs as we can in 30 seconds. We'll also use our own font for scoring. Finally, we'll rebuild in Scratch what is said to be the very first computer game, table tennis for two. Let's get started.

Stage 2 Games
In this module, we start building even cooler games. We'll start by building a game called Robo-Eel, which is similar to the arcade game, Snake. Then we'll create a game called Emoji Pong with artificial intelligence. In the last module, we built a two-player version of this Emoji Pong game. This version allows us to play against the machine rather than another human. Finally, we'll build Circuit Breakers, which is similar to the old arcade game, Space Invaders. So let's get started.

Stage 3 Games
In this module, we build three more cool games. We start by building a game called Gear Hunters. Next, we create a game called Planetoids. This one's similar to the old arcade game, Asteroids. Finally, we build a game named Floppybot. This one is similar to the popular app, Flappy Bird. So let's get started.

Summary
In this module, we add sounds to the Emoji Pong game. That way you can learn to add sounds to all the games you build. We then learn how to add a game to our very own HTML page. So let's get started.
