“I Need Practice Programming”: 49 Ideas for Game Clones to Code | The “Invent with Python” Blog

“I Need Practice Programming”: 49 Ideas for Game Clones to Code | The “Invent with Python” Blog | Computer Science in Middle and High Schools | Scoop.it

Here's a list of game clone ideas for you to implement. Each has a short description of the game, links to videos of the game, and descriptions of what kind of algorithms you'll need to know in order to implement them. These games have been selected for their simplicity, so you don't have to spend several weeks designing art, levels, scripted dialogue, or complicated AI. These are clones designed to be doable in roughly a weekend. A Mario or Zelda clone would be complicated to put together, but a Tetris or Asteroids clone would be doable in a weekend.

Don't try to create a STEM curriculum on your own.  Start with the resources that already exist and build from there.
