Beginner - Breakout!
First you might need to learn about the game you need to make. That's right - your homework starts with playing video games. Here is a link to a simple Breakout! game someone made in Scratch already. There are also lots of tutorials on making a Breakout! game for Scratch - so even if you have no idea how to get started, there is lots of guided tutorials available (try Google for others, but here are two: Tutorial 1, Tutorial 2.
Once you have a basic game created following one of these or another tutorial, start thinking about how you can make it unique? Some ideas you might try:
- Powerups that do different things coming out of the blocks.
- Custom designed graphics.
- Multiple levels.
- Levels with unique designs.
- Levels with different shaped walls or challenges!
Be inventive if you want your shot at the prize!
