arrow_back Shooting Sprites (Challenge)


Welcome to a challenge add-on!

Rather than walking you through every step, this video will give you some suggestions to help you get started.

To start, add a new sprite to your program. You can use the “when space key pressed” event to get started with your code. Recall that the “go to” block sets the sprite’s x and y position on the stage, while the “glide” block makes a sprite move smoothly to a particular x and y position on the screen.

Also, the “show” and “hide” blocks will make your sprite show and hide at specific times during your code. Use these blocks to program your sprite to shoot across the stage. You can have your sprite shout out a reminder like “Only a few Hippos left in Stock!” You may need to add another “when space key pressed” event so that the code will run at the same time.
