Usually everyone faces two main problems when getting started with a new programming language. First, most of the coding challenges websites have very strict input and output formats and second, they get boring very easily. We love RPG games so we thought why not mix the two and create something that can teach people Problem solving using Programming while being fun the whole time.
What it does
Secrets of the Space Invaders is a RPG game made on Twilio. Space Invaders have taken over your spaceship so you need to get through all the obstacles and make it to the command center to take back the controls of your spaceship. You have to get through lasers, loot the treasure left behind by space invaders and hack the terminals.
All the challenges are mathematical and hence can be solved using any programming language. So get your thinking caps and let's take back our spaceship!
How we built it
- Tiled to create the maps
- Project Euler for the problems
- Twilio for RPG
Challenges we ran into
- This was our first time working on RPG game so it took us some time to figure things out.
- Maps were particularly difficult to make.
- It took a lot of time testing each and everything.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Creating a beautiful RPG game that can be used to teach programming.
