Tutorial – 

  1. Your next tutorial of this series is going to be, “Lets Dance”
  2. As part of this tutorial we will build an interactive scene where your characters on screen dance and possibly even sing. .
    1. In this tutorial you will write code and get the characters to make different moves to seem like they are dancing.
    2. You will be introduced to the concept of changing multiple character costumes during a scene using code.
    3. You will also have the choice of introducing additional characters so that we have multiple people dancing on the stage at the same time.
    4. You will have the ability to choose your own characters, choose a suitable background for stage, play music of your choice and any other customization that you think you want to put in.

Challenge – 

  1. Once you are done implementing the game why not try out some additional challenges. Here are some ideas –
    1. Let’s change the musical tune and introduce additional music tunes during the game. Try cycling through 2-3 different musical tunes.
    2. Write code so that your dancers are saying things during the game e.g. “Check out this move”, “How about that”, etc.
    3. Try changing the background to suggest game over when the the game has come to an end.
  2. Speak with the other kids in class and ask them for ideas on what else we might implement to challenge ourselves.
