You can make games, but what you want to make can be VERY limited since Alice doesn't have a lot of the functions, or abilities that normal programming languages have.

You should check Dick Baldwin's Alice tutorials (they're very helpful).

try experimenting with 'When a key is typed' command

As well as if/else statements

what i do usually is to find a game that is simple and fits alice well (like Battlezone 1980 arcade goes with alice perfectly) I try looking at older title games... or you can come up with your own simple game.

Who would have thought that nesting would look so colourful and candy-like...?
Thank you for the tidbit. It sort of answered a question I have been mulling about.

I do not have story telling Alice, but I think that you would be much better off creating games with the regular Alice.
