Please upload your Scratch games here! Unfortunately, we can't upload .scratch files to the wiki at this time. Please zip up your file to make a .zip file, a .gz file, or a .tar file and upload that instead. If you need help figuring out how to put your project in one of these compressed formats, scroll down to the "How to Upload" section.
Pong by Rebecca Nesson
Perspective Cat -- For 1 Player. Use the arrows to move the cat and catch the rabbit, but don't get eaten by the dog (with really cheesy pseudo-perspective, and rudimentary collision detection).--Rheppner 00:31, 21 September 2006 (EDT)
Tron -- Two Player game. The blue car is controlled with the Q and A buttons; the red car is controlled with the P and L buttons. Force the opposing car off the board or to run over your tracks to score. Others are welcome to improve the program (possible tweaks include losing by running over your own tracks, increasing car speed over time, and preventing slowdown by pushing the buttons in quick succession). -- Darren Klein
- Cool. Nice job doing two players! The slowdown can be addressed by using if-then commands instead of When commands for controls. For some reason, it works much faster (actually too fast).--Rheppner 19:21, 22 September 2006 (EDT)
Space Rotor -- For 1 Player. Left arrow moves clockwise. Right arrow moves counterclockwise. Space bar fires. Shoot the ... umm... space cubes for points. Don't get hit by them or by the meteor. But, do catch the +1 for an extra life. --Rheppner 19:47, 22 September 2006 (EDT)
Puffer -- For 1 Player. Move the puffer fish around with the arrow keys. Eat fish that are smaller you (each fish you eat makes you bigger). Don't get hit by the crab, the starfish, or bigger fish than you; they'll make you go pop! Eating the seahorse makes you shrink.--Rheppner 17:17, 23 September 2006 (EDT)
Danger Cat Takes on the World by David -- For 1 Player. Help Danger Cat avoid all manner of trouble as he tries to follow his cousin Felix to the promised land. Use the arrow keys to tell him where to go. Please feel free to change and tweak this.
Surrealist Showdown by Josh -- For 1 Player. Use the mouse to shoot down falling enemies with your double-barreled cat gun (two shots needed to destroy the object). Each level has 5 enemies - if you miss all five, then the game ends. See how far you can get.
Learn Color Names by Nathan Brown -- For 1 Player. Select the color block that matches the word. See how fast you can do it and how many points you can get. Concept and design by Katherine(age 6) for her sister Samantha (age 4)
 by Mark Maher This is a cute simple animation. Try to guess which dinosaur will win the race!
Use this space to discuss your Scratch programming experience. Questions, ideas, whatever.
Does anyone object to our having an "open source" model as the default for our Scratch programs (i.e. an understanding that everyone in the class who has access to Scratch can can make use of other people's programs so long as they re-share their changes)? (Those who do not want others modifying their original programs could always explicitly withold permission if they liked.) --Rheppner 00:41, 20 September 2006 (EDT)
The Scratch programming was fun. Easy to use and a very creative tool for learning. I remembered all the time what prof. Nesson said in class about âHow you deal with being stupid is the key to how you learnâ.
How to Upload
Unfortunately, we can't upload .scratch files directly to the wiki. Instead we need to upload .zip or .tar or .gzip archives. Here are some basic instructions (that I hope people will improve on as they learn more information):
- Create a .zip archive
- On a Windows machine you probably have the application WinZip. You can use this application to create a .zip file from your .scratch file. It should be pretty self-explanatory once you open WinZip.
- On a Mac machine you probably have the application StuffIt Expander. You can use this application to create a .zip file from your .scratch file. It should be pretty self-explanatory once you open it.
- If you don't have WinZip or StuffIt Expander, there are free alternatives that you can find and download if you search for them on Google.
- Alternatively, you could take your file to the HLS computer lab and do it there.
- Upload your .zip archive to the site
- On the left sidebar you'll see a link called "Upload File". Click that link and then follow the instructions to upload your file.
- Once the file is uploaded you end up on a page for your file. Copy the URL of that page.
- Come back to this page and post a link to the URL that you just copied in the Gallery section along with a title and description
- There may be better ways to do this than to link to that URL you end up on, for instance ways to link directly to the file or simple ways to know where that file lives. However, I don't know them. If you know them, please edit them in here!
- If you get stuck, please email Rebecca
