One of my student is being rather creative, but that has resulted in some complications re: what code to use for the various actions in her game.
In space, she has a star, a planet, and a space ship. Here are a few of the things she wants to do, and my question is where is there a list of commands that she can look up to find the code she needs?
The space ship moves horizontally from left to right. If you click on the planet (no matter where the space ship is), the space ship shrinks in size and moves toward the planet. When the space ship gets there, the screen zooms in to a closeup of the planet’s surface. The space ship lands and some aliens get out.
I had the student list all the things she wanted her sprites and other objects in the scene to do. Now she has to figure out the code, and she’s not sure what the commands are (neither am I!).
Thank you very much for your help!
