How I Use It

I would not use this with teaching in the classroom.

It takes too long to collect the "Sprite " points needed to build a game yourself.

Its a good at home activity for students who love to game and may want to start building a simple game themselves.

My Take

I found that 6th and 7th grade students enjoyed the game playing.

The process of collecting "Sprite Points" to build a game can take 2 or more hours.

Therefore, not good for a classroom situation.
