Hello,

Nationals will be my first time competing in Game On, as I come from NC where they run Amazing Mechatronics instead of Game On. Does anybody have any tips or things to know for Game On? Or any good resources?
Thanks!
Learn the rubric. Live by the rubric, die by the rubric. If you don't tick the boxes, you won't get the points.

Learn, by heart, your implementation of player sprite controls, non-player sprites that respond to player movement etc. You don't have time in the event to think about how to make something work.

Make one partner responsible for cranking out the basic game structure while the other partner figures out how to wrap the scientific theme around it.
Something that really helped me was practicing making games on Scratch with different scientific themes that I would ask other people to give me. Again, refer to the rubric so you know which areas can earn you points! There are a bunch of YouTube videos that can teach you how to code things if you ever have trouble figuring certain things out. Overall, I also believe it's also important to understand why the code works so that in case you run into problems at competition, you can work your way through problem-solving. Good luck at nationals! :)
Our Regionals set up their turn-in system so it shared all the games publicly on Scratch (https://scratch.mit.edu/classes/165734/students/), so you can take a look if you want some ideas. North Bethesda, Urbana, and Tilden are some of the really good ones.
Poyo! (^-^)

I'd recommend working on a base formula for a game then practicing the said formula with different scientific themes. Good luck in Nats.

SoCal didn't hold Game On, so we are a bit confused on some parts. Is the game type given by the proctors, or do you choose at competition?

Is that still the same for this year? I've been getting mixed responses

Wait the game topic, or the game type? Game On doesn't have a game type this year.
