P1-P5 March Holiday Camp 2021
Learn to Code your Pokémon Game!
Pika Day 1
Introduction to Tynker and The Pikachu Run Game
Animate your main character – Pikachu
This session will start with a light-hearted introduction to Tynker and the Dino Run game. To create a unique and attractive rendition of the popular offline game, we will be fusing an all-time favourite cartoon, Pokémon with Dino run.
Students will learn about basic game design and fundamental theory of a side scroller, endless runner game, in addition to having the opportunity to unleash their creativity as they create their own sounds, obstacles, coins, score system and levels for their game!
Moreover, students will focus on their main character – Pikachu. As they grasp the concepts of gravity, random, loops, and variables, students will code to make Pikachu interact with the game environment such as the enemy, coins, obstacles etc.
Feedback of the game (i.e events/triggers to end the game and sound effects) and variables will also be introduced in this session. Concept of variables must be grasped well in this lesson for the students to be able to add in more ideas to the game in the following day.
Pika Day 2
Using concept of variables and Final Touch-up and Presentation
Students can start to be more creative and add in more obstacles to their game. Previously taught concepts from the day before will be recapped.
Students will be tasked to complete their side-scroller endless runner game by adding in more obstacles to make their level more interesting. After editing their level, students can then play with other students’ games and also let other students play with their own game to gather feedback and re-adjust their game to make it more interactive and user-friendly.
This session is mostly a fun and light-hearted class for the students as they make final touches and polish their game. At the end of the day, students will present their game to their fellow classmates who will critic their game so that they can improve the game based on the ideas/feedback given. This is to help them understand the importance of game testing.
