The Stage is the term for the background of the project but can have scripts, backdrops (costumes), and sounds, similar to a sprite. It has some restrictions on sprite functionality, such as motion and size blocks.

No sprites can move behind the Stage — the Stage is always at the back layer.

Differences from Other Sprites

There are many differences between the Stage and other sprites. These include the following:

  • Is stationary — thus,
    • Cannot use Motion Blocks
    • Cannot use any Pen functions, other than Clear
    • Has no size blocks
    • Has no “touching” blocks in the Sensing category
    • Has no “distance to” block in the Sensing category
  • Cannot talk — thus
    • Has no “Say” or “Think” blocks in the Looks category
    • When asking, places the question above the text box rather than in a speech bubble.
  • Has backdrops instead of costumes
  • Cannot be renamed
  • Has no “show” or “hide” blocks in the Looks category
  • Cannot change layers — it is always at the very back layer.
  • Must have a 480×360 dimension
  • Space in backgrounds left transparent becomes white automatically in the bitmap
