CodeMonkey Launches Game Builder App

CodeMonkey Launches Game Builder App

CodeMonkey launches the Game Builder platform as an additional feature to the series of basic coding courses. The Game Builder is geared to advance students from learning code literacy to become digital creators by building and designing their own online games.

The Game Builder’s three interactive online courses feature different elements of the game-creation skill set that culminate to instruct the overall programming and design process. Along with CodeMonkey’s Game Builder free-style game design mode, the distinct courses offer a supportive environment for students to apply their coding skills and create their own games.

Ten thousand teachers and students piloted the Game Builder in a pre-launch beta test to evaluate the learning process throughout three courses: Platformer, Frogger and Sprite Animation. These courses put a creative spin on classic video games, such as Super Mario™ and Frogger™, to assist in concept development for students as they program their own game. Core programming skills taught in Game Builder include coding with Coffeescript, designing touch interface games for mobile devices, drawing and animating graphic elements and sharing interactive user-generated content.

To learn more about the Game Builder and to test out the courses, visit or at ISTE booth #1054.
