Virtual Design and Create Your Own Video Games with MakeCode

Webelos will be creating the maze game which is typically a workshop after an intro to Arcade MakeCode. So this is a good follow up for the attendees from any of the previous MakeCode Arcade workshops. This workshop builds upon what was taught in the Eat the Donut workshop. If you have not attended a workshop building the first game, that’s okay because we will walk you through making a maze game from the beginning to the end. After we have the basic game built, you can change your game and add to it. Important note: Must have Cyber Chip completed before attending class.
