  1. The vertical length of the screen on an iPad is 768.
  2. The horizontal length of the screen on an iPad is 1024.
  3. Because 768 / 2 is 384 and 1024 / 2 is 512, this makes the direct middle of the screen on an iPad X 512 Y 384.
  4. Rehopping used to be called 'branching'.
  5. Not counting a 'when' block, it only takes 6 blocks to create a modern smooth background.
  6. Not counting any 'when' blocks, it takes 8 blocks to create a square tile background.
  7. Kaleidocosmos by Valgo has the most likes of any projects.
  8. Hopscotch 2.0 introduced the 'Last Touch X/Y' blocks, along with Repeat Forever. The 'Check once If' blocks were created a little later.

-The old "Draw a Trail" block was called "Move with Trail" and was blue. It was just like Move Forward, but the sprite draws a trail on its path! (Colour and width was controlled using Set trail colour and set trail width block)

-There are 53 different sprites to choose from in Hopscotch. (Infinite if you count custom images!)

-There is a way to get custom images on your projects without the subscription. However it only works on your device. A bit useless lol

Actually, check once if blocks were added before last touch x y and repeat forever, I think you're thinking check if else.

Hmmm...
There used to be a block called "Draw A Background" or something like that.
It would draw grass, the sky, and a sun!

It's from when I joined in June 2014. My first published project probably has it. I'll get a link, one sec.

I remember draw a spiral, but I don't think I was here long enough to see breakdance or act like a balloon.
