  • Adding music and a colourful Intro to your game can grab peoples attention. It can be the difference between holding attention and falling asleep. You Can put any MP3 or WAV sound clip into PowerPoint and then insert it into your game. (INSERT>SOUND>SOUND FROM FILE…)
  • This slide and many others are created using the custom animation tool. You can then sequence the sounds and pictures like the speech bubble, spider and Indy character.
  • Grabbing pictures from Google and putting them into your background can really make your game look and feel fun. Remember you might need to adjust the order of images on your screen to make the large background picture go to the back. (RIGHT-CLICK IMAGE > SEND TO BACK or BRING TO FRONT)
  • Multiple choice?Create multiple slides of the same thing by duplicating the slide (RIGHT-CLICK, DUPLICATE SLIDE) Then change the text to suit what is happening.
  • This page was created using the drawing (located in Format for PP 2007) tool to make the black hole. Then I added some shading by RIGHT-CLICK shape > FORMAT SHAPE > FILL> GRADIENT FILL.
