Before we click.  Let’s review a few things!

A game kit – A set  of pre created  ‘things’ that we will use in the creation of our game.  Pre created things can be:   images,  sounds,  instructions.

A game kit helps us get to the building of our game faster.   Later we can modify

the images,  sounds, instructions, the way we want them.   For now let us use the

game kit.
