How To Make A Platformer On Scratch

Hello. Today I will explain how to move around, jump, make levels, and make an awesome title screen.

Walking (Easy)

First, you always need a green flag.

Then, make a Forever block and an If Then block.
Then, drag a ” Key left Arrow pressed? ” into the If then block.
Then, drag a ” Change X by ” block, and inside the white part of the block type -5 into it.
Now, copy the If Then block with the Key left Arrow pressed. block and Change X by -5 block below. But, change the Key Left Arrow Pressed? block into Key Right Arrow pressed? and change the ” Change X by -5 ” to 5.
Now your sprite should be able to move left and right!

Walking (Harder.)

Okay, now it’s time for a harder but more smother way to walk.
