A simple shooting game with aliens that move in different patterns, missiles to kill them, and bombs to kill lots of them.
I am currently continuing to develop this game, adding new features and learning more basic features of pygame and the python standard library. Hopefully my code can help other newbies learn the basics as well :)
For my latest code, follow the home page link to the repo. For a specific release, follow the source link to the specific release.
Use WASD to move the ship, space to fire missiles, and b to drop bombs.
New in version 3.0:
* Yellow alien type that crawls horizontally across the bottom quarter of the screen
* Scrolling background of stars with a seamless loop behind the game and menus
* Start menu with 'start game', 'high scores', and 'quit' options
* SQLite database to store persistent high scores
Things planned for future releases:
* Sound effects for bombs and explosions
* A boss fight of some sort :)
