Minecraft bomb game template
« on: November 16, 2012, 03:41:55 pm »
Hi guys,

I put together a Minecraft based bomb game seeing how all my students are crazy about it. It worked pretty well in class.

It's a blank template and not particular to any lesson so I'm not sure where to put it. Feel free to move the post as necessary.

Cheers!

Thanks for making this!  The 6th grade boys at my elementary school are crazy about minecraft. 

The best part about your bomb game is that it's true to the game, which will grab the interest and excite minecraft fans in the class.  At my school, the students who play minecraft happen to be poor at English; this bomb game will really make them want to participate in English class or at least pay more attention. 

The second best thing is that it's super clean and polished.

When the end of the school year approaches, I hope to use it for final review.  Thank you again for sharing your hard work :).

Hey guys, this i my first post, but I hope I can be helpful here.

Kiraaso, my kids are also crazy about minecraft, and I happen to love the game also. I updated your PPT game and made a few changes that I think make it a little better. I added some of the game's other features. For example: some of the caves have been replaced by abandoned mines, and jungle or desert temples. I changed the 4 point emerald icon for a diamond one (just my anal nature taking over >.<). Also adjusted some of the pictures to look a little more menacing.

I made sure to give you credit for the ppt and I hope that I am not stepping on your toes by posting this. Just want to help give a great PPT for the other foreigners.

Finally got to whip out the minecraft game. It was great! The students really enjoyed it.
Props to the OP and M.S.Jenkins for the modified template.

Well, I had some down time last week, and was encouraged by the responses and downloads for the Minecraft game that I decided to give it a little bit of an overhaul. New features include updated sounds and graphics, new splash art for the background, and rules, a dungeon where students have to answer two questions from zombies and a completely reworked rewards result.

I am going to post a few supplemental files on here as well because I would like to add a few more things like armor to protect a teams points from the creeper bomb, and a Zombie challenge for the letter Z, but not sure how to implement it. I am also going to make a few more with the rewards switched around because my kids instantly know where the creeper bomb is, and it ruins the fun.

Have fun with this guys, I hope that it helps build your PPT Library.

BRING ON THE CLASSES!!! 8)

Tried out my own game with the kids and found some mistakes and errors in hyperlinks, sorry to those who have already downloaded it, I am uploading the fixed version with this post. I am about 99% sure that the kinks are all worked out, but please message me if you have criticism, mistakes to report or ideas to suggest. Thanks again all and happy mining!!! :P

I used this game with my 3rd grade middle schoolers and they absolutely LOVED it!! Even the students that usually sleep through my class were actively involved and were screaming "go in! go in!" Great game! Thanks for creating this and sharing it with non technical folks like me!

I used the earlier version of this game with my students last semester, and I can't wait to use the updated version with my new first graders. I'm sure they'll go apes**t. I don't know who enjoys playing this game more, me or my students. The graphics and design are beautiful!

I downloaded M.S.Jenkins' 1.4.2 version of the game. This is the same game, I just modified the hyperlinks to change the order of the questions around and changed a few point values. My students had it memorized!  :laugh:

Thanks to you both for a great game, the students here love it.

Edit: I had to fix the "Y" question - for some reason it didn't keep the animation and the points were just there when they went into the cave. The kids thought I cheated somehow. Fixed it (and added zombies)

I'm not sure if there's a new thread for this, but I've edited the template again to now include 42Qs instead of 24 from M.S. Jenkins' wonderful updated Minecraft template edit. I hope it will be of use to someone~


Thank you woodsworth English.

The PC Bang is NOT funny, kids.

This is WONDERFUL. My students absolutely adored it. Played it with first graders all the way up to fifth grade and they went universally nuts for it! Thank you so much!
