What is scratch?


#1

What is scratch? I hear people talking about it on hopscotch but I'm not sure what it is.


#2

Scratch is an amazing programming website for computers where amazing ga,Es can be made.


#3

Cool! I'm gonna check it out.:sunglasses:


#4

Scratch is an online coding Website made by MIT. I would consider this the next step after Hopscotch.


#5

It's similar to Hopscotch in that you drag and drop blocks of code to make games as well :smiley:


#6

I have this on my computer, but one thing to note though, it might be more confusing to use compared to hopscotch as there more blocks and stuff that you won't understand.

P.s. I myself have it, but after years of using it, it's so difficult to use.


#7

it is a coding site, and it got me into hopscotch. on there, i am codestuff.


#8

Ok! I will keep this in mind

I <3 scratch, slightly more complex than hopscotch, but with more creative license than hopscotch for multiple reasons, 1: you can make your own custom sprites, down to 1 pixel, without an emoji, and 2: cloud variables, lists, operators, and 20,000,000,000x if blocks, you can place a when inside of them (also I'm doing my best to translate, hopscotch when=scratch sensing/that brown block that I forgot the name of and can't find out 'cause I'm using my iPad for this 3: larger and more advanced community, people who have been programming as a job are on scratch (search griffpatch, he's awesome) people are able to make near exact replicas of professional games, a few examples include scrtacharia (terraria on scratch), Agar.io, FNAF 1, 2, 3, and soon 4, super Mario 1, 2, and 3, Legand of Zelda 1... and soooo many more, these are projects that have already made and I have personally players, and are 100% exact replicas, but don't be intimidated by these games, it's actually just hopscotch with about 20 more blocks


#14

20,000,000,000x better if blocks xp


#15

Anyway, I just got an account, though I've played and coded (without saving) on scratch for about a year, I never made an account. Now I have one. My username is Lightningwing
Lightning is cool. A lot of my usernames have the word 'lightning' in them
