  • You’ll learn how to:
  • Use code to make a series of driving games including parking, racing, scrolling and two-player games.
  • Design your own game levels, cars and tracks.
  • Use variables to keep the score and to store the speed in your games.
  • Add sounds and create your own code blocks and functions.

To create the games in this book, children will need a desktop computer or a laptop. The games require a proper keyboard so will not work well on a tablet or iPad. It is recommended that children should be supervised when using the internet, especially when using a new website.
