Kodu Hints and Tips

We have now started to learn how to code using Kodu Game Lab. Kodu is available to download for free from Microsoft on any PC or Xbox 360/One. To help you practise at home, we will be adding the new algorithms each week. Try to spend some time each week having a go; it will help you when we create our own games in school!
