This is a Game Maker Studio project. It is a good starting point for teaching your students to make their own video games while teaching them the basics of coding. The project is very basic with an open ended theme.
Each student will need a computer and Game Maker Studio to complete this project. Earlier version of Game Maker will also work.
The teacher should have some knowledge of game maker to assist students who are not familiar with creating sprites and objects. If the students have done a previous game maker project this would be a great extra credit or TAG project to give to individual students who are ready to take their game creation to the next level.
