    Whoa, we’ve had lots of entries this week using #MyCoolestProject across Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

    This weeks two winners are:

    1. Manik, 12 from who is involved with CoderDojo in Glasgow, Scotland, with his Scratch game Doom On The Broom EXTREAM. In his game, the witch and her assistant Gobo have been ambushed by an endless wave by monsters!

    The game can be played by two players or a single player using A and D to rotate the witches sidekick and the arrow keys to rotate the witch W and up arrow key to fire a fire ball. Manik has included lives in the game. You have 3 lives in total every time any one get hit by a monster(s) you lose a life.

    There are multiple monsters including ghosts, bats, dragons and many more . Each monster has been coded with its own movement pattern!

    Manik will be showcasing his finalised project at Coolest Projects UK in London on April 28th. Well done and we look forward to seeing your project on the day!

      Well done you two!
