Star Destroya

My students found a cool game on the net, created by Code Like Zell. They improved on it. First they created a mechanism to keep score then they added all the text to the screen. Not content with triangles and circles they created their own sprites and grabbed a Hubble image to use as a background.

This is a great example of taking an idea and learning from it. This code included stuff I hadn't taught them. Somehow they managed to learn it without me. Makes me wonder some days why I bother even showing up ;)

Attached to this page is a zip file with the code and the data folder that has the sprites and fonts used in their game. Presented here with the permission of the creators. Use the mouse to move left and right and click to fire.
