Scratch Coding for Kids - Chase Game

This Scratch Chase Game project will provide you in in depth understanding of the costume tab, coding on the x and y axis, using loops and if blocks, and variable blocks. In this project we will code a simple ‘chase game’ where the player controls a sprite and tries to catch another sprite moving randomly around the screen. A, live interactive scoreboard is also made to keep track of the players score. 

If you want to save your work you will have to join scratch, which is free. Just press the ‘join scratch’ tab in the top right and sign up. This is not necessary however to use the program.
