Task: Create a (short) game based on old arcade (or alike) type games.
Programming is, in a way, fun, but it’s also the subject I have most trouble with.
For this little game I chose to make something based of Space Invaders.
To explain the game;
There’s two lines & each has 5 holes that shoot bullets. One of the lanes is the enemy, which
randomly shoots one or more bullets out of its 5 holes. The other line is controlled by the player.
The player too can shoot bullets out of their 5 holes (by clicking on the a,z,e,r,t keys).
Now, what you basically have to do is shoot and destroy the bullets the enemy shoots at you. However
if the enemy hits your line and/or you hit the enemy line, it’s game over! With other words, you may
only hit the bullets. Try to keep up for as long as possible.
I was quite proud of this game. Unfortunately, for some reason, I couldn’t get the scoring system to
work. It helped me a lot programming wise though. I finally started to properly understand several
things. The game itself is actually also quite fun to play in my opinion.. (has both normal & hard mode)
