Sploder

download-2

Sploder is a game creator where students can explore how to make puzzles or games that others can play. They learn to code by using design by creating environments and levels using different features. This program gets the students really thinking about positions, placement and forward thinking about how the game could work.

Students can be as creative as they want with Sploder creating digital stories that challenge and lead others through a range of levels. Thanks to Anthony Speranza for this resources.
