In this game you will navigate a bat through a forest filled with trees. The bat should not hit a tree or it will be hurt.

We will explore a different type of flying movement, where the bat will keep moving downwards unless the flying button is pushed continuously. We will also move the trees forever so that it looks like the bat is flying. Good luck and have fun!!

What you will be learning in this Lesson?

In the above Scratch Activity you will be exploring the below concepts in detail

Sprite Movement

bat

This game will explore a different type of movement. In this game you should be able to move the bat up only. You have to continously move it upwards or it will move down because of gravity

The bowl will be controlled by the spacebar key.

Looping

loop

A loop makes a statement/block to run multiple times. In Scratch, any block whose label begins with a “forever” or a “repeat” is used to make a loop.

For this project, we will be using loops to make the trees (platforms) move towards the bat continuously.

Cloning sprites

In this activity, we will learn about cloning sprites. Sprites can be cloned so that they are reused for multiple instances (bullet and player sprites can be cloned).
