I recently start learning python programming language and I decided to learn the new features of python by building a space game. My main inspiration was to learn new libraries of python and create some interesting and fun game.
What it does
Space Monsters is a fixed shooter in which the player moves a spaceship horizontally across the bottom of the screen and fires at monsters overhead. The monsters begin at random location that move left and right as a group, shifting downward each time they reach a screen edge.
Instructions Moving Left: Press keyboard left key Moving Right: Press keyboard right key Firing: Press space bar Score: Highest score Game over: If you miss shooting the monster you lose.
How we built it
I built this project using python programming language and VScode editor also I use pygame one of the largest library of python for game development. Likewise, I added some sound effects and background music to make this game more interesting and fun plus, I used some online images for background and logos.
Challenges we ran into
The main challenge I faced during this hackathon was learning the pygame library from scratch and the second challenge was to learn new GitHub commends for project management.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
I am proud and happy that I completed this project in 24 hrs and I learned lots of amazing and new features of pygame and python.
What we learned
I learned pygame one of the largest library of python for game development plus new python features and GitHub commands.
What's next for Space Monsters Game
I want to add some more features to this game such us levels and more players.
