• Turtle Wordle: A Clone of Wordle in 60 Lines of LogoTurtle Wordle: A Clone of Wordle in 60 Lines of Logo
    Wordle, a cross between Mastermind and Hangman, seems to be the rage these days. Also, implementing it in as few lines as possible. In Logo we get to cheat a little about the second bit, as we can stack multiple commands on the same line. But we still need to keep things within a reasonable ...
  • Floaty Turtle: A Flappy Bird clone in LogoFloaty Turtle: A Flappy Bird clone in Logo
    Floaty Turtle is a simple clone of Flappy Bird written in the Logo programming language that turtleSpaces uses. Open in the integrated development environment (IDE) NEWTURTLE "myrtle TO floaty ;here is yet another example of a relatively complex ;game that can be rather simply implemented in Logo: ;a flappy bird clone! ;to make it ...
  • Bale Example: DodgeballBale Example: Dodgeball
    Dodgeball is a very simple game using a bale wherein the player moves the turtle from the left to right sides of the screen using the keyboard. This is similar to a popular example used to teach Scratch, and the basic concept should be familiar to most Scratch learners. In the case of this example, there are ...
  • Activity Idea: Gone Fishin’Activity Idea: Gone Fishin'
    Build this cool island scene using turtleSpaces Logo and a few basic shapes! First we begin with a tree. We can build a trunk using a repeat loop of cylinders that get narrower in diameter and longer as we go. We can introduce a slight curve as well by tilting the turtle up a bit each ...
  • turtleSpaces Halloween!turtleSpaces Halloween!
    Witches, pumpkins, devils, ghosts and black cats are all haunting turtleSpaces this Hallowe’en! turtleSpaces is great for creating 3D models using code. You can also find these models in the Published projects section of the webLogo interpreter. The Pumpkin: The pumpkin is created using the spheroidslice primitive, which creates an elongated slice of a sphere. By creating ten ...
  • Creating Animated Videos Using turtleSpacesCreating Animated Videos Using turtleSpaces
    The above animation was created inside turtleSpaces, and then exported as a webm video file using the savewebm primitive. I then used Final Cut Pro to add the audio and the titles. The Logo code used to create the animation is fairly straightforward. The turtle moves in an arc outwards from the center, creating arcs around ...
  • Example: Towers of HanoiExample: Towers of Hanoi
    This rendition of Towers of Hanoi is a simple game to code and makes introductory use of 3D shapes. Recreating it could serve as a great introduction to turtleSpaces and Logo coding in general. In the game, you attempt to transfer the disks on post 1 to post 3 ending in the same order the disks ...
  • Example: Plane Trapped in a TorusExample: Plane Trapped in a Torus
    This example demonstrates the use of various camera-related functions, shape inversion, the premodel primitive and others to create this cool animation of a plane trapped in a torus! The procedure first sets the turtle model to the built-in plane model, before creating a tag that sets the color of the torus. Then it creates an inverted ...
  • Rocket OrbitRocket Orbit
    This simple commented project allows for the introduction of 3D movements and shapes (the rocket procedure) including a basic introduction to repeat, the creation of turtle models and the use of premodel, an introduction to the orbit primitives and the use of a new worker (thread) for orbiting the camera! TO rocket forward 70 ...
  • Example: Tetris written in turtleSpaces LogoExample: Tetris written in turtleSpaces Logo
    What do Steve Wozniak and George H.W. Bush have in common? They’ve both been seriously into Tetris! But who can blame them? The object of the game (as if you didn’t know) is to complete horizontal lines using falling shapes of various configurations. When you finish a line, it disappears, causing the rest of the blocks to fall down a line. However, if you stack up shapes to the ...
