U3L13: Mini-Project Animation

Student is looking for help on this project: Code.org - Game Lab
They were wondering why the dark black outline is running so bold on each of the characters.
They want the blue character to jump up and down and the green character to move to the right for now but also reduce the dark black outline on all characters.

What is happening is that the characters are moving repeatedly due to the changing of the x and y values in the draw loop, but the student hasn’t put a new “background” block in the draw loop to cover up the previous instance of the sprite. So, it looks like they have a thick outline, but that’s just due to a new instance of the sprite being drawn on top of the old one and at a slightly different location. If they add a background block to the draw loop, it should take care of it.

Good luck!
