Cargo Carrier

While flying your Millennium Falcon (original, right?), collect cargo while out-maneuvering and destroying asteroids.

Brock Glaze
I used Python 2.7 and Pygame to create this game. You will need both of them installed to run the script. However, you shouldn't need anything else. Any suggestions or comments are very welcome! Collect cargo crates and warp to more difficult zones. You have 1 life, and the max level is currently set to 10. Can you win? I, the creator, have yet to get past level 8, but maybe you can!

    Thank you for the advice. I REALLY appreciate the input about the code. I am going to change that asap.

    Also, I appreciate the advice on functionality, and I love the
    suggestion. My wife actually commented that it's weird that the smaller
    rocks are just as destructive as the biggest rocks. So, I am going to
    implement shield power (ie health bar), and different damage depending
    on rock size.

    Thanks again for your input! Hopefully I'll have the new version up as soon as I get some free time to add those things.

    No matter what version of Cargo Carrier I try, I get the following error:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "cargo_carrier.pyw", line 555, in <module>
        if __name__ == '__main__': main(1, 9999, 40)
      File "cargo_carrier.pyw", line 302, in main
        icon = ccfuncs.load_image('data/icon.ico', True)
      File "C:\Documents and Settings\zimmeb5\My Documents\Downloads\Cargo_Carrier\", line 292, in load_image
        image = pygame.image.load(file_name)
    pygame.error: Unsupported image format

    Is there something I need to get Pygame to display .ico images?
