What you'll learn
- Learn how to animate game characters
- Build a browser based game from start to finish
- Explore the basics of game design
- Create multiple different enemy types with different visuals and behaviours
- Implement 3 weapon types and boss battles
Old is gold. Let's get inspired by the classic games from the 80's and add our own graphics and game features. Explore the interstellar void and use 3 different weapon types to burn through swarms of space bugs of different types, some larger than the others.
We will start with a game loosely inspired by the classic Space Invaders arcade and we will experiment with different additional features such as boss battles, super weapons and different enemy types.
Don't forget to download all the bonus gifts. Students of this course will get a pack of premium quality 2D game art, this time in a sci-fi space theme. You can also download the source code from multiple stages of the project, as we gradually add more features.
We will implement multiple enemy types:
Beetlemorph - basic enemy, 1 hit is enough
Rhinomorph - armored enemy, multiple lives, multiple damage states
Mantismorph - massive boss size enemy, increasing pool of lives
Eaglemorph - when hit, it will sacrifice a body segment and it will spit it back
Squidmorph - unknown alien bug, use everything we learned to implement your own unique enemy type
and more ...
