Game Investigation - Pinball

Answer these questions on paper:

  1. Look at the scripts for the pinball. How did the author simulate gravity?
  2. How does the ball know when to "bounce" off of something?
  3. Does the ball always bounce the same way when it hits something?
  4. How do you think the ball determines which direction to bounce?
  5. What's the purpose of the purple line at the very bottom of the game?
  6. What other features do you think would make this game better?

Make these changes to this Scratch Project (make a remix): 

  1. Add scoring to the game
    • Decide the points a player gets when they hit different bumpers
  2. Display the score to the player
