Write your own Raspberry Pi game
Step 19 — What next?Where do you go from here? Adding a background would be one easy step (here we’ve simply edited the default background and used the Paintbucket tool to fill it with blue). Another would be to add sound effects, or even simple animation; both the shark and the crab have alternative costumes you can use, and it’s simple to do using the “switch to costume” block in the Looks category. By altering values it’s also possible to speed up the crabs and fish, while you can duplicate both to make for a busier game. Why not try adding more hostile sea creatures with different movement patterns, or change the theme altogether? Or add titles and a proper Game Over screen. Scratch makes all this and more possible – the rest is up to you.
