Kestrel Class Wenger Games

I have uploaded Kestrel Class' Wenger's Cannonball Catastrophe games to the following link:

It's a 4MB zip file so you'll need to unzip it. It contains all of your current games in progress. You might like to fiddle around with them at home.

You will notice however that your trial version of GameMaker will tell you that there is an error if you try to run a game that has explosions and other special effects in it. This is because these are only allowed in the PRO version.

To get around this, you will have to delete the actions containing special effects, or beg a kind soul at home to fork out £10 for the PRO version.

(Note to parents: Sorry if this ends up costing you money AGAIN!)

Children in Osprey Class - let me know if you would like me to upload any of your games and I will do so.

GameMaker download link

A reminder for those who requested it - here's the link to download the GameMaker program:

Don't forget - we only have so much ICT time to learn to program games. Now is the time for you to have a look at some of the tutorials online and teach yourself a bit more. You can find the tutorials at:

Who knows where it could take you?!

If you want to be able to use the special effects that we did today then you'll need the PRO version which is £10.

Good luck! And remember - if you get stuck then post a comment to the blog and somebody will help.
