Let’s mash-up some retro platformers!

This is the second episode in our Retro Video Game Mash-Up project. 

During this session, you will be designing your very own platformer by creating levels for your game. When designing and creating your game you might want to make your own version of Sonic or try mashing up your favourite games into one, or a completely custom unique to you. Either way, we will be here to show you how to design an awesome pixel art platformer.
