Did you know you could recreate beach vibes, boat rides, and underwater quests on Scratch? We created a list of our favorites below...


1. Famish Fish


Guide an adorable clown fish as it feeds on smaller fish near the ocean floor.

What Skills Can Families Learn From Water Games?


Not only are the games fun to play, but it's also fascinating discovering the ways each developer simulates water. For example, Fish Catch uses over 260 coding blocks to simulate waves in the ocean. The scene uses the pen block, x and y axes, a timer, and a sine equation (a function used in trigonometry), to generate believable motion physics. Tappy Tadpole uses speed, velocity, ripples, lines, and splashes (features that took over 140 coding blocks to bring to life).


The diversity in fluid simulations introduces players and creators to the intricacies of water and how it behaves. But developers do not have to be mathematicians or physicists to pull off this cool effect. Simpler approaches can produce equally impressive results!! For example, Froggy Valley uses 12 coding blocks (including a sine equation) to create a super relaxing wave. And Famished Fish uses 31 coding blocks and special lighting to create its ocean floor.


That's it for our list! Which game was your favorite? Which one would you remix? If you like this list, you may also love our Flappy Birds remake list here.
