- Now drag a
set mySprite block under the last block we set.
- Click the drop down menu next to mySprite. Create a new variable and name it
Blinka or what ever character name you want.
- Next, click the thumbnail for the sprite and create your desired sprite.*
- Click the drop down menu at the end of the block and select the
Player sprite type.
- Now add a
set position block to place Blinka in a specific spot each time the game starts. By clicking on the number values, the program allows us to set x and y values visually. Just move the mouse over the game console to choose a place to put the sprite.
- Lastly add a
move block and click the plus sign to set arrow keys as the way we move Blinka around.
*MakeCode Arcade usually allows importing images to use for background and sprites by dragging and dropping png files into the editor space. However at the time of this writing, this functionality is not available due to being in Beta Mode.
