Course: Scratch – Art and Animation


Penguin Arty Party

Penguin Arty Party is a super-creative computer game. Penguin moves left to right, following the mouse pointer. The disco ball at the top of the screen automatically moves left and right. At random intervals, balloons drop from the disco ball. When penguin catches a balloon, he earns one point.


We learn to:  

  • Use XY coordinates
  • Use random number generation
  • Create clones to make our code more efficient
  • Use variables to store a number, i.e. game score
  • Use collision detection to determine when penguin touches a balloon
