I really hope this game can enhance your students’ learning experience.  I know mine love it!  This has been a long project, lots of snow days and summer evenings learning to program so I could offer this game.

Must be played in a HTML5 compatible browser on computer.  Game is too large for a iPhone or iPad browser.

 

Note: This is the internet browser version of Coordinate Planes based on the original Windows version but rewritten in HTML5.  Because of the limitations of web browsers, some features and animations have been removed and sometimes there are graphical errors (like the attack plane not displaying every time).  The original Windows retail version is coming soon.
