I used to, but eventually I got bored and stopped using it.

I think the mentioned Scratch is a programming language. I never used it, though.

More than a bit, I'd say... it's extremely simple. I used it when I was in primary.

I'm in primary now, and I'm just getting a grasp on programming. Created first game 3 days ago. I was wondering... how do you get a sprite to hide itself, but get it to pop back out afterwards? I'm having a sprite which are the letters 'game over' but I want it to appear after the game has ended. Is it possible?
I doesn't care, do I?

Don't expect me to answer, I stopped using Scratch long ago.

Well, presumably, there's a hide command, or at least a command to move the sprite off the screen instantaneously, and you use that at the beginning. Then, at the end of the game script, tell the sprite to come back on.

Is it possible to get a sprite to move 'up'? I can only get it to move left and right.

I don't know scratch, but try to use negative numbers (if 2 is right, -2 should be left).

Edit: Sorry. I misread your post.

He said he can ONLY get it to move left and right. He can't get it to move UP.

or down, for that matter. I'm trying to make a game where you control a paddle and bounce the ball up to destroy the bricks.

I did a quick google search with the terms
Code: [Select]
Scratch move up downYou can see the results, if you like.

And one of those results caught my attention:
Introduction To Scratch: Exercise 1
In there it shows how to move sprites. The number "90" is the angle (in degrees) counted from the vertical (12 o'clock):
Code: [Select]
90  = right
-90 = left
  0 = up
180 = down

Diagonals would be 45, 135, -45 and -135 (and all other numbers for different diagonals). Try multiples of 30 degrees (or even multiples of 15 degrees).
