In this tutorial for Squeakland.org‘s E-Toys we start building a game from scratch. The game involves a frog that eats flies. People following along with these tutorials can download the E-Toys project files from http://drop.io/freemor_etoys_projects . I will try to find a more XO Friendly place for the projects in the future. In the next tutorial we will add levels, scoring, and other features to this game.

I apologies for the current delay in getting the next E-Toys Tutorial out. The problem is that there is some rather noisy construction going on and it would be picked up when I tried to record the tutorials. I will get them out as quickly as possible.
