Navigating through the laws of Scratch was initially very daunting. As I developed basic familiarity with the programs guiding principles I sensed almost limitless possibilities but still did not know how to access them. This led to a sense of frustration and helplessness. As I acquired partial knowledge and awareness I actually felt more disempowered.
I scanned the Wiki and other sources for helpful information but was initially unsuccessful. Ultimately it was only by reviewing the internal code of other games such as Skiball and Driving (information one is often not privy to in the real world ) was I able to comprehend the full power of Scratch.
As I reviewed more games such as Maryâs Lamb, I realized that the inner laws of Scratch were capable of feats that never even occurred to me.
