Students then honed their skills in accuracy and precision while drawing out the three levels of their game on special gaming graph paper. They used an iPad to "capture" their drawn game, and edited the game using the design elements in the Pixel Press app. After students had designed and edited their own games, they participated in a beta testing session among classmates to provide each other with feedback about their games. Students will use this feedback to make further adjustments to their games before publishing them in the Pixel Press Arcade for kids all over the world to play!
