HarvardX - CS50x - Scratch entry
For the first problem set of CS50x, the goal is to explore programming without actually writing lines of code, but instead using the Scratch environment. For me, the most difficult bit was thinking of an idea. Until I remembered a very simple game we had when I was around 12 or 13 (i.e. a long long time ago). In this game a cat was standing on the top of the screen and would try to catch mice, which were running in different levels below. This is a variation of that game, with fish instead of mice and a shark to give it a twist. Actually coding this was fun, and my children like it, so complete success!
To start the game, click on the green arrow and then press the down arrow key. Try to eat as many mice as possible in the given time.
