Scratch is a simple video game creating application for your computer. It was created by MIT students and you learn simple concepts of commands and movement needed to create a video game. Scratch game creations seem simple and easy to the foreign eye but I have experienced the challenges of Scratch.
My game is simply not functional. I have struggled for hours with scratch and i have concluded that i will not be a video game designer in my life. Scratch is a great beginner design program and will help you realize the amount of interest you have in computer game design. Scratch is a great learning experience and I recommend giving it a try. Try not to get frustrated with the challenge, I know I did.
