NEW GUIDE: John Park’s Trash Panda Game @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit @msmakecode
Trash Panda is everyone’s favorite button mashing, brick dodging, crow avoiding, building climbing, pizza snarfing raccoon game! Find out how to make Trash Panda in MakeCode Arcade with this new Learn Guide! You can even play it on your PyGamer or PyBadge handheld system.
OK, we just made it, so maybe it isn’t everyone’s favorite just yet, but we think soon it will be!
Learn to create your own exciting action game based on actual real-life events. You’ll use MakeCode Arcade to craft the game, learning how to center the camera using null locators, spawn randomly timed obstacles, pizza power-ups, and set up button mashing input.
Get Lynn the Trash Panda to the top of the building as fast as you can to save the day!
