Zip frog challenge - Barclays Code Playground

Level 1 challenge

We've got a hungry frog that needs feeding! In this coding challenge we'll show you how to use a cloning tool to create more flies for the frog to catch, and help us set up a function to end the game once a certain score is reached. For this challenge you'll need to access the Scratch website at scratch.mit.edu and search 'Zip frog challenge'.
