Baby, I'm a Starfish for ScratchJr

Finish the book with a quick dodge-'em game for ScratchJr. This is a project from Cool Scratch Projects in Easy Steps by Sean McManus

About this project

The book concludes with five short projects, and this one-pager shows you how to make a game called "Baby, I'm a Starfish!" in ScratchJr. In the game, you help a starfish swim through the school of fish. This game builds on the skills you learned building the other ScratchJr project Super Wheelie, which has a chapter dedicated to it.

This project is for ScratchJr, which runs on iPads and Android tablets. You can find links to download ScratchJr for free here.
