Coding Video Game Design: Ninja Attacks!

Video games are everywhere and in almost every form you can imagine! In Coding Game Design: Ninja Attack, we will create our own version of a Platform game set in a dojo that we will defend from a ninja attack! We will use the Engineering Design Process to create a storyboard to outline the rules of play and characters for our game. Then, we will use software to bring our storyboard to life with programming. At the end of the class, everyone takes home a working Windows compatible video game.
