Tips and Tricks

Workflow and mistakes

  • Copy and paste code blocks to save time.
  • Be careful when creating and deleting sprites! The code blocks you create tell the associated sprite what to do. Thus when you delete a sprite you are deleting the code that tells it what to do.
Deleting a sprite will delete all the code associated with that sprite!

If you accidentally delete a sprite, click edit on the tool bar then click "Restore Sprite" to bring your code back to life!
