Pipeline Defender in Scratch

Build a simple Scratch arcade game you can customise using this project from Cool Scratch Projects in Easy Steps by Sean McManus

About this project

The book ends with five short projects, and Pipeline Defender gives you the bones of a simple arcade game that you can build on. It's frantic as you use your interceptor craft to stop the asteroids breaking through the buildings and ultimately blowing up the pipeline that runs under the city. There are no sound effects and the graphics are basic, so there are plenty of ways you can improve on this Scratch project and make it your own.
