We will use the Mu editor to start creating graphical games. We will use the Pygame Zero library to draw lines, circles, boxes and sprites. Then we will make them move. Then we will make them interactive.

Since we have a budget of zero I can’t print copies of the code for everyone, but you can download a PDF and print it yourself here. Then bring your printout along.

If you have a game console controller, e.g. Xbox or PS4, with a USB connector please bring it along, including the USB lead.

If don’t then don’t worry, we can will mostly use the keyboard to control our games. The USB controller is just an additional option that I thought might be fun.

In terms of Python programming, if we get time we will look more at loops (‘for’) and some boolean logic (‘and’, ‘or’, ‘==’, ‘<’, ‘>’.)
