Game Builder

Game Builder is scaffolded, self-paced, and automatically assessed, so just like CodeMonkey’s award-winning Coding Adventure, it’s super easy to implement in the classroom.

For the ultimate game-design experience, Game Builder incorporates a multi-faceted process to guide students into becoming computer game creators.

With Game Builder, your students will:

Build real computer games using CoffeeScript

Design swipe/touch interface games for mobile devices

Remix CodeMonkey games and make them your own

Share creations with the world at CodeMonkey’s community page



Take coding skills to the next level by learning to build your own games. In CodeMonkey’s Platformer course, students will build a game! Afterwards, they will be able to share your very own Super Mario™ styled games.

  • Learn the fundamentals of game design and creation
  • Master user-interface and game mechanics including keyboard events, timers, collide events, and much more!
Goal: Create a game where the players use the keyboard to get the monkey to the banana, avoid obstacles and gain super powers!


The next stop on students’ path to become a real game designer is learning how to create their very own version of the classic game Frogger™. Students will learn how to build a game that they can then control using touch interface. Students will then be able to play and share their games on any smartphone or tablet.

  • Create unique versions of the classic game ‘Frogger’
  • Learn to control touch interface
  • Play new games on tablets or smartphones!
Goal: Create a game where players tap the screen to help the frog cross the road safely to the other side.

Sprite Animations

Feeling artsy? Express everyone’s artistic side through drawing images, programing animations and creating original sprites for your own games. In CodeMonkey’s third and final game design course, students will learn important skills on how to sharpen your inner digital artist.

  • Create images, animations and graphic elements
  • Define and program animations
  • Implement sprites into your games!
Goal: Learn how to animate sprites in a unique game where players design.


After completing these courses, your students are ready to exercise their creativity by designing and sharing their very own games using the freestyle Create Games platform
