This is a fun and simple tower defense game.

A fun game where you have to cover the sun with the moon. You control the moon. Whenever you cover the sun you get points. (@Awesome_E)

You drag a turkey around and you try to dodge the utensils. You have three lives and try to survive as long as possible.

Another awesome game made by SuperMarioMiniGames (@JonnyGamer)


Interviews:

Interview With @hyperactive_fox

By @yaygirls

How long have you been on Hopscotch(and the forum)? Why did you stay on?
I’ve been on Hopscotch since sometime in 2014. Forum, I came in Summer 2016 for a week or two on a different account, then I got this one in May. Hopscotch is just addicting for me, and more so the forum. It took me away from coding.

Do you think there’s a bridge between coding and drawing? Which one do you prefer?
Yes, as all art pads have to be coded, and most artists at some point in time make their own. I personally code more, because I su.ck at drawing.

What do you like most about Hopscotch? What could be improved? Hopscotch has an amazing community. But I think it used to be for younger kids. Maybe moderate it more? The coding part is pretty good.
Here you are! Thanks for interviewing me!

Interview with @TheMasterOfAirjitzu

By @NindroidGames

Who the heck are you? I am TheMasterOfAirjitzu.
What do you do on Hopscotch? Stuff
What do your cookies taste like? I have never made cookie sandwiches in my life.
What are you doing for Thanksgiving? Being a magical, fluffy unicorn.
What isn’t that mysterious project you’re working on? It isn’t a potato.
You made a wonderful Christmas game last year. Have you made one this year? If so, when will you publish it? I have. About a year after I published the last one.
Why haven’t you changed your profile background in almost a year? You shall see. In about a year.
Who are Rey’s parents? I have no idea.
What is the temperature of your shoes?

Interview with @PinkCupcake8

By: @Autumn_Leaves
How long have you been on hopscotch? The forum? I’ve been Hopscotching since July 2015 on my old account, which I’ve renamed ORW2, and I’ve been on the forum since September this year, though I’ve been watching without an account for much longer <:

Do you prefer drawing or coding? Why? I enjoy them both equally, as I like to use both the left and right side of my brain, and because they’re both fun •v•

Who is/was your inspiration to start drawing? To start coding? StargirlStudios was my inspiration to start drawing a lot, and @OrangeScent1 was my inspiration to really work hard and try anime style c:

How did you find Hopscotch? the principal of my old school suggested a bunch of coding apps to my dad, and Hopscotch was one of them ヾ(๑╹◡╹)ノ"

Do you have any tips for aspiring artists on hopscotch? KEEP GOING!! even if it seems like you’ll never be “as good” as someone else, know that your art is and will be amazing and unique in your own way ╰(´︶`)╯♡

If you could change one thing on Hopscotch or the forum, what would you change? Why? I would stop all the bull<hi:ying, haters, and try to Hopscotch and the forum the best places I could.


Coding Column:
Featured on Hopscotch

By: @Autumn_Leaves

Almost every time you enter Hopscotch, there are new projects on featured. But what exactly makes a project feature- worthy?

On the nominations for featured topic, one can nominate a project for featured. Not every project will make it though.

When you enter the code of a project on featured, you can see how much work a person put into that project. It’s filled with Sine and Cosine, variables, clone index, and a lot more stuff that’s probably incredibly hard to use. People work hard on their projects, and that shows.

Our reporter @Kayro , talks to people who have been on featured.

@Awesome_E (current featured coder)
“Being on featured feels great! Everyone gets to see your project because all the other tabs are forgotten about, and like HopscotchRemixer said, work hard on it. Take my E-Pad and Minigames for example. Those took me something like 2 months to make (only to get laggy thanks to recent webplayer updates).“

She also spoke to @NindroidGames:

(former featured coder) he said that the forum has way newer porgjects (spelled that way!) than before and that some advice to coders wanting to be on featured to be a magical unicorn? And umm that being featured is just… meh, normal.

Also, the creator of this newspaper, @HopscotchRemixer has also been on featured.

By working hard, and trying and trying again, people have made it onto featured. You could too!

Interviews:

Interview with: @photographer123 by: @yaygirls

How long have you been on Hopscotch(and the forum)? I’ve been on Hopscotch for about 2 years; I joined in December 2015. Lol it’s almost my anniversary. yey ;v; I’ve been on the forum since July 2017.

Why did you stay on?
I’ve stayed on here one: because I’ve made so many amazing friends, two: I can share my art on here, three: idk it’s addictive.

Do you think there’s a bridge between coding and drawing? Which one do you prefer?
Um, I guess, yes. Possibly. They are extremely different “tasks”, and you could consider coding an art. Personally, I don’t really see a bridge between the two. no offense to coders. Lol I prefer drawing so much more. My coding skills, if even “skills” are very amateur. Extremely amateur.

What do you like most about Hopscotch? What could be improved?
My favorite part of Hopscotch is the community. There are so many amazing coders and artists on there. It’s whats kept me here for so long. Honestly, I think one thing to improve early would be [no this isn’t going to some deep code related issue don’t get your hopes up] to have a better coder-Artist relationship. A lot, well maybe not a lot, some coders don’t necessarily like artists because they are supposedly “misusing their precious code-only” haven. It’s a fact that there are artists on Hopscotch and they have made their place here, but some coders need to accept that Hopscotch is loooonng past being strictly code-related.
tysm yaygirls!! I hope this is useful.

Interview with: @Serenity By: @Kayro

What’s your username?

On Hopscotch, I’m “Serenity [Gone]”, and on the forum, I’m @Serenity

How long have you been on the forum?

According to my profile, almost a year and a half.

What is your favorite color?

I like to wear blue, but my favorite color has to be a silvery blue-grey.

What is your favorite block of code or group in Hopscotch?

Leave A Trail! I think it’s called Draw A Trail now, though.

Do you enjoy the forum?

Yes! I love the friendly community and the creativity of some of the Hopscotchers on the Drawing Topic.

If there was something you had to change one thing about the forum or Hopscotch?

I thought having leaders was pretty cool when we had them, but it seemed to take up a lot of their time. I think I like the forum the way it is!

Ok everyone if you interviewed multiple people last week put the interview you didn’t put in last weeks paper into here. It would be great if we could get somebody to do the General Page this week.
