Description

 

Campers experince a half day of our Gamebuilder Video Game Creation- Intro (Arcade Game) camp.  and a half day of the Gamebuilder Video Game Creation- Platform Style Game camp.

Both Camps use Gamemaker software, but two different style games are created using more of the functions and features of the Gamemaker software.

Course descriptions are as follows:

Video Game Creation - Arcade Style (Ages 8-16)

n

The Arcade course is a program where the game that is created has action for each level all on one screen similar to Centipede, Asteroids, or Pac Man. The main character (which the children create) can be anything. Other characters (enemies) pursue the main character from off the screen or move about the screen.  The character dodges the attacks of the enemies while scoring points for picking up objects and destroying the enemy objects. Options are endless and children create level after level for a full week of fun. This is a half-day program. Students can add an additional program to make it a full day camp.

Video Game Creation - Platform Style (Ages 8-16)

n

 

n

In this camp children build a game described as a "platform" game like Sonic or Mario. Children have a blast as their characters do the impossible, overcome obstacles and enemies and then conquer the Big Boss.  The character progresses on a long path (like a journey) with the background scrolling behind it and adversaries, prizes, obstacles, are encountered as it goes. Lessons on the basics will be similar to the Arcade course in the very beginning, but the class diverges and different programming techniques are taught in order to build this Platform game. This is a half-day program. Students can add an additional program to make it a full day camp.
