Students will learn to read and write code to create, test, and play their games.
Play Fetch Video Game Play Example:
The object of the game is to guide the red dog toy through the maze.?
Get points for bouncing? the toy off the cat and for getting the toy to the dog.
Lose points for running off course and touching the green edges.

What is included in the Tutorial:
1) 15 pages of step by step instructions with screenshots of code to be used.
2) One premade game template with all graphics and sounds included.. The game has 10 levels of play.
3) The game template comes with 3 premade game mazes. These can be used to test and play the game as code is added and completed.
4) The game also has 7 blank starter mazes. Students draw their own mazes on these 7 templates.
