Pokémon Pinball Machine
Coding Holiday Camp 2022
Create your own Pinball game!
Basic Game Design
Pinball is an arcade entertainment machine in which a ball careens around the machine's interior, hitting various lights, bumpers, ramps, and other targets depending on its design.
Students will learn about basic game design and fundamental theory of developing a game, in addition to having the opportunity to unleash their creativity as they create their own sounds, obstacles, score system and levels for their game!
The session starts with a light-hearted introduction to Tynker and the Pinball Machine game by designing their Pinball Machine with their favorite background and characters. They will also grasp the concepts of physics, especially gravity, in order to understand how the pinball interacts with its game environment such as the flippers and obstacles.
Students will also focus on the programming of their pinball and the flippers of the pinball machine. The concept of conditionals will be taught to students as students are required to program their pinball to interact with different objects in the game and create different visual or sound effects. The concept of variables will also be touched upon as the game requires a scoring system to make it more fun and engaging to the player.
Design & Play
At the end of the session, students will try out other fellow friends’ games, gather feedback and adjust their game so as to make it more interactive and user-friendly. This session is mostly a fun and easy-going class for the students as they make final touches and polish their game.
To wrap it all up, students will present their game to their fellow classmates who will critic their game once more so that they can further improve with the ideas/feedback provided, allowing them to understand the importance of game testing in game development.
