Activity: Extend

Now you can customize your game!

  • Try adding to the collision() event to make the player sprite do a victory dance.
  • Try setting the ball's y-coordinate to a random number so that the ball can appear anywhere on the stage.
  • When you are done click Submit to complete your Hour of Code! Click Next to apply your skills and build a new game!
