10 Game Ideas for New Scratchers


Here is a list of ten game ideas for new scratchers who have nothing to do,

10 GAME IDEAS FOR NEW SCRATCHERS:
Part 1: Basics
1. Dress-Up Games
Dress up games are simple, yet fun. They draw a crowd, if you know what tags to use.
2. Music Games
Although not technically games, if you put some pictures with music over it, these games
can be really interesting! If you put bouncy music and put moving pictures, that would also help.
3. Slideshows
If you have tons of pictures on your computer just waiting to be used, go ahead and make a
slideshow! They are fun and whacky, depending on what you make. Just choose a theme and start importing!
4. Food Games
Easier then you think, but not a baby's game, food games can be LOTS of fun. How many times have
you dreamed up a fantastically tall ice-cream? Or a crazy looking pie? What about your dream-come-true sandwich?
The more food varieties= the more fun!
5. Imported Videos
So, you can't import videos. Bummer………… but still, you can make your OWN videos. How? Well, make a sprite and put LOTS
of different costumes that resemble the same thing, but change slightly in each picture. Sort of like stop-motion. Have fun!
Part 2: More Than Basics
6. Store/Hotel/Museum
If you have been to another coding website, then you know enough about it to make something more complicated.
To make a store/hotel/museum; you must use the ‘elevator system’, which is basically like… well… let me show you.
use this block to make it where ‘when spacebar clicked= switch backdrop to elevator’. When the backdrop
is switched to elevator, your going to have the backdrop look like an elevator and the level buttons will have labels and numbers like
every other normal elevator. When those numbers are clicked on your keyboard, the backdrop will switch the whatever backdrop the
label reads (you can find more detailed explanations on the forums, or just experiment on your own).
7. Movie
Unlike a video, as mentioned above, a movie normally comes in episodes (on scratch). People make little cartoons that they make
into a series of little episodes, all focused on one particular story. Some movie ideas are:
I. Warriors
II. Magical Creatures
III. Dragons
IV. Pokemon
8. Simpler Games
Not nearly as complicated as a video game, simpler games are basically just ‘you walk around and complete quests or listen to
people talking’. Some games are even easier than that, in that, you walk around and save a kingdom by whenever you touch
something; it dissapears and you get a point on your score.
9. FLAPPY
Flappy is an excellant example of a ‘simpler game’. You just click the bird/Flappy (or any character you want to put in)
and make it move a few steps above. The obstacles are the only problem, when it comes to coding, but even those
‘little obstacles’ can be solved when you across them.
10. Video Games
Does anyone in your house have a device? I can guarantee that at least one person in your house has a device of
some sort (or you wouldn't be able to go on scratch). If you play games on your computer, ipad, ipod, itouch, ipad mini,
etc., you will have come across a game of some sort that resembles minecraft, skylanders (my brother plays it), infinity (another of
my brother's), mariokarts, and more! You may have noticed that they all are called Video Games. These are harder to
make on scratch, but, once you figure it out, it becomes second nature.

Thanks for reading my post, I hope it helps you get an idea for another game to make. Have fun scratching!

I think this will fit more in the project ideas forum. This is for new scratcher to say hello, introduce themselves, and ask questions.

This is my forum signature! On a forum post, it is okay for Scratchers to advertise in their forum signature. The signature is the stuff that shows up below the horizontal line on the post. It will show up on every post I make.

Are you being sarcastic in the last one, because i think everyone knows they are video games, also i love stop motion and i literately forgot that you could do a whole film on scratch - i guess thats my next project

10 Game Ideas for New Scratchers

how about my top 5 Ideas for new scratchers!!
5. Guns Simulator
when i was in scratch my first game was My first RPG (but these 2 are Remixes because im new at scratch)
I saw a lot of 2016'ers+ Made Guns Simulator as their 5+ Games Like Sniper Simulator , Shotgun Simulator That's A action Military Game you can tell but (Duck Hunt : NES) game Would be better , Because Duckhunt has same Gun Mechanic as other do And reloading is good too!

4. Simple RPG Game
I guessed it Always on the List RPG's! Why rpg's? Because RPG = Role playing Game is a popular game just like pokemon , Undertale etc. But these are Experts However Good way to Make Simple RPG is Bring a character , Attack button (best used : 2-4) , Enemy But still I don't Wanna Show how to do this Because it's a Long Story ago.

3. TV shows are now in the Scratch
What is it? these character as a main one is a Player to Complete Quiz What Another Says < For High-ranked scratchers XD (Add a Characters like Homer simpsons , Gumball , Spongebob etc.) Making all of these Are a good idea (Make same game on my list XD, with TV characters)

2. Battles
Known as my 3rd Fav Thing is Battling Like RPG's Is Keyboard Controling Players like W,A,S,D to control Players how about scratch arrows Keys and K = Kick , P = Punch , M = Magic. Just Like Street Fighters In scratch!

Ohhhh What will be In Number One!!!!

1. Zombie Survival
Before Saying Boo!!! Zombie Survival Was a Best game in Scratch with AI Zombies , And You Like Smashing heads Zombie Right? Alot of Scratchers Made Zombies Game and they Hitted 10,000 Views?! But still Keeping Up a good work Gives you High rate of Likes , Why dont You Put Random Box , Or Gun pickups? Make HP Bar Adding Modifiers Will give you Alot of Views (Maybe)


If you disagree on my List it's Ok. you can tell what is your Fav games for New scratchers!
