What Kids Will Learn

Learn to code, one block at a time! With Tynker, coding is as simple as drag-and-drop. These game projects are a blast for kids to program and even better, fun to play with when they're done.

Kids learn about variables, control structures, functions, game mechanics, and so much more while they create real, playable games.

Start with the basics by recreating classics like Flappy Bird and Space Invaders, then move onto increasingly sophisticated games that use randomness, scorekeeping, and physics.

Game Collection

Creative programming challenges help kids extend the games—and invent their own! Once kids know the basics of each game, they can add their own flavor by editing them and creating their own characters and rules. Then, they’ll have what it takes to be a real Game Maker!
