Some Finished Kodu Games

I frequently find myself creating new games in Kodu, either at home or in school to demonstrate key concepts and I often end up leaving my games about 90% complete and don’t often go back to actually finish them off! I had three such games that I had started at various points in the last few months and have now taken the time to actually finish them! I thought I would share them with you, feel free to pick them apart to see how they work, improve upon etc. . .

Here they are:


 5-a-side Football

 Mario Meets Kodu

Gameplay instructions are in the world description of each game. Click on the Kodu icons to download each game.

    Hi, i’m running into problems opening these files. I am using Kodu Maybe this is the problem?

    Do you happen to know what has changed between versions?


    I get this error

    Hi Ian

    I think it is probably down to the version you are running. The games were created on my laptop which is running so I would try upgrading and see if they work then? I noticed the games I exported don’t work on my PC at work either as that is running a slightly older version too(

    It’s definitely worth updating as I believe there have been a few bug fixes since version

    Hope that helps.

    In another post I said I got some error when trying to download a game… well, I just found this post and now I can download and run the games listed here, however I can’t play them. Do I really need an X-Box controller? Mine is a netbook. It would be nice if you tell me which keys should I use to play the games, let’s say the Pacman game. Thank you.

    Hi I fixed the other link now thanks. These games were made with an Xbox controller, all you need to do is modify the programming and change it so it reads:

    WHEN DO (Instead of where is has the gamepad)

    When I make future games I’ll try to make them so you can use both methods for controls.

    Thanks, Nicki

    Thank you, I figured it out now! (the programming). It really is easy to follow your videos, and thanks to them I am now engaged with Kodu. Thanks!
