I’ve been looking for programming systems that should help the budding programmer of Robots and Video Games. I looked at Scratch and I can see that a wannabe programmer will outgrow this very quickly. The next step is GameMaker from YoYo games. I plan to assess this next.
On a side note; I have written the Silver Dollar Game in C++ using Allegro and in Processing. I tried in Scratch but it was going to be so difficult to bend the game into Scratch that it wasn’t worth it. (I might have a go another time but if someone else fancies doing it, be my guest and post the results here!)
