Create games with python: online PyGameZero simulator

PyGameZero works best in an IDE like Mu. I wanted to see if it was possible to get some of it’s features working on an online python simulator like create.withcode.uk to make it easier for code clubs and computing lessons. It’s a work in progress (some examples don’t work quite as they should yet…) so please do let me know if you spot any bugs.

Normally in PyGameZero, if you want images or sounds in your games you have to save on your computer in specific folders. You can import sounds and images with create.withcode.uk but currently you have to say where each assets can be loaded from the Internet in assets.json (see the examples). The next step is to make an asset manager to make this step much simpler.

Please reply to this post with a link to any games you’ve been able to create!
