This lengthier activity involves designing and creating a simple computer game using the free Microsoft Kodu platform. It is expected that the children will have some prior experience of Kodu, or that a basic tutorial is offered before commencing this activity. Worksheets are provided that help children through the game design process and that provide help for using the programming tools. The game can be extended by adding 'AI' characters. Teaching notes are provided, linking the activity to the concepts that run through the Barefoot collection.
