We had a blast today inspiring young people in Key Stage 2 about science, coding and stupid robots at the National Science and Media Museum.  Here are the mini games they made in the 5 minutes we had with them.

Hello! You’ve come here because you’d like to know more about games making and our new project APPril; getting young people and schools to make a game in April.  Every day in April a new tutorial is released for APPril.

All you need is a Windows PC and the Internet (Not even all of it just our website 🙂 )

Sessions 1-5 Interactive Session or Video – teach you how to make a basic game

Sessions 6-10 Video with some Interaction – make that game more advanced

Sessions 11-30 Videos – give you help and ideas on how to make your very own game/app

If you’ve already signed up go straight to the APPril menu calendar


Yes SIGN ME UP FOR FREE and keep me informed over April/APPril

See some examples games

Watch Session 3 as a demonstration.

Yesterday I was helping a student make a Pokémon Go style game mechanic.

Flicking balls to catch creatures.  Using the built in physics engine in Fusion it really wasn’t too hard to do.

So I thought I’d share a tutorial with you!
It’s a novice tutorial not for beginners, Newbies try APPril www.impactgamers.net/appril

SORRY about the LOUD start

Try it online.

The source files for you to try

This amazing app was made by Josh a teenager who had some amazing ideas.

Build a bridge to save the dogs from descending to hell.

This one flies close to boundary of  “family friendly” content, but hopefully you can take the damned dogs in the comedical taste it was made in.

Having a video that can change it’s content to what people select is good… but then imagine having a video in a lesson that will expand on things a majority of students don’t understand, show kids work on the screen and have quizzes and mark the results… Now that is interactive digital learning. Keep in touch with Impact Gamers to see how we develop this resource.

Inspired… well maybe traumatised by the New Year sales; the next game is “I want a robot”.

Help the little girl get the robot of her dreams by selecting the right one from the self. Get it exactly right or you’ll upset her.
This game was mainly a test of multiple linked sprites on a screen.

Have fun zooming up and down the shelves.

NB. It also offers the possibility of 4096 different robot types, just from 6 robotty parts (and a cup of tea).

HAPPY NEW YEAR! And a game about the perils of dodgy smart watches. GEt to your New Years party at the right time. The only issue is your new “smart” watch needs to be told how long a seconds it. Get it right; get to the party. Make the second too long or short and you are early or late.
