Summary

Scratch differs a bit from the previous tools on the list because it's designed for educational use. Accordingly it has a very small vocabulary, even intentionally lacking procedures (edit: Scratch 2.0 beta includes procedures). This simplicity means that some of the minigame features, like the infinite playfield, required entirely new solutions. Despite the purely graphical programming language, the code for the Scratch version of the game is in some places more concise and prettier than the other versions. But for prototyping, faster solutions are probably preferable to prettier solutions, so I'll leave Scratch to the educational users.
