14 Harry Potter Scratch Game14 Harry and the Snitch

15 Harry Potter Scratch Game15 Snitch Behavior In a 'normal' Quidditch game the game is over when the snitch is caught But, in this game you will have to catch 10 snitches to win. –you will need to keep track of the number caught Each time the snitch is caught it will hide and reappear in a new random location

16 Harry Potter Scratch Game16 Variables To remember how many snitches were caught we will need a variable –the value stored in a variable can change (vary) Click on the Variables button Then click on Make a Variable Enter a name for the variable Use the default of For all sprites Click on OK

17 Harry Potter Scratch Game17 Starting Scratch games and animations usually start when you click the green flag Click on Stage to select it Click on Scripts to program Click on Control to see the control blocks Drag the "when green flag clicked" block out Click on Variables –drag the "set Snitches Caught to 0"

19 Harry Potter Scratch Game19 More about Messages Broadcasting and receiving messages is how sprites communicate with each other –it doesn't cause anything to be printed or appear –it does execute scripts that receive the message –All broadcasted messages should have one or more sprites that receive the message

20 Harry Potter Scratch Game20 Responding to Caught Hide the snitch –drag hide from Looks Add one to the number of snitches caught –drag from Variables Change the x and y values –drag from motion –replace values with random numbers from Number Show the snitch –drag from Looks Play a sound –drag from Sound

21 Harry Potter Scratch Game21 Conditional Execution Sometimes we want to execute a block or several blocks if some condition is true –use sensing blocks or number blocks that return true or false –these have 6 sides (hexagon) The snitch is captured if Harry is touching it Use an if from Control to check if Harry is touching the snitch sprite

24 Harry Potter Scratch Game24 More on Conditionals Sometimes we want to execute some blocks if a condition is true and other blocks if it is false Use a if and else block from Control for this

25 Harry Potter Scratch Game25 Winning the Game In the snitch script that receives the caught message –drag in a if and else from Control –place it after the change Snitches Caught by 1 –move the last 3 tiles into the else part if you have won these don't need to execute
