Scratch is a visual programming language. Through easy to use drag and drop blocks, one can build games, animations, and stories in Scratch. It is a great way to learn about programming and is generally used to teach kids the basics of programming. But it can be used by anyone to develop games of increasing complexity. Scratch allows the use of event-driven programming with active objects called "sprites".
