Game Maker Day 1
Today we learned what sprites, backgrounds, and objects were and how to create them. We learned how to apply programs to the objects and how they react to their surroundings. For example today we made a game where we make our own sprites. There is a maze and you are trying to get to a pot of gold. We learned the programs of the rooms and how the walls block the sprites. Also we learned how to use the x,y coordinates and whether to check relative box off or not. We learned the backgrounds, and how to apply them to the room. We also learned the command to change from the first level you created to the second level you created. When we were getting into art during camp. Chris, one of our teachers taught us how to shade our sprites to make them look like a light was shining on them. During camp we also had plenty of breaks, to let our minds process all the information we had taken in. Overall today was a very fun day and I learned a lot. I am very proud of the games I have created.
