arrow_back Add Another Cave Section

Transcript

In this add-on you'll create another cave.

To start, create a new cave section.

Click paint new backdrop.

The program checks if the sprite is touching black to see if the game should end, so outline the new cave sections in black.

Use the circle drawing tool to make your rocks.

Also, make sure to minimize the drawing area so you can paint on the entire stage.

Use the circle drawing tool, then use the reshape tool to shape your rocks into any size you would like.

Then fill the cave sections with any color you'd like.

This example uses yellow.

Next, program the cave sprite to line up with the other cave sprites.

Copy the code from another cave sprite by clicking and dragging it to the new sprite.

Duplicating and reusing code saves computer scientists a lot of time.

The first number in this equation is the number of the cave.

In this example the new cave will be set to the number three, that way the last cave still has a finish line.

Try it out.

Whoa, the third and fourth caves are running on top of each other.

To fix that, be sure the last cave is programed using the number four.

Test this again.

Awesome.

Now it's your turn.

Design a new cave sprite with black edges.

Copy the code from another cave to the new cave sprite.

Then, adjust the numbers to match the cave sprite order.
