A Game Design Project

About this Project:

The challenge is that you’re in space and encounter a whole bunch of aliens. My design process was really simple. The concept I chose was a fly swatting type of game. I used the basic concept, built upon it, and added the sprites. The project works by using the mouse. Pressing down on the mouse you hover over the aliens and press down eliminating them.

Great Design
Makes Me Think

Feedback from the Judges:

Marcus Del Valle 👏 Program Manager at Code Nation — Emoti-Con Judge
This is such a cool game! I especially love you making each alien appearing at different speeds but randomly so it's fun to see each enemy clearly to hit them one by one!

One error I see in your code is the "count = count = 1" block which I think you just dragging the wrong block by accident. In the future, it may be awesome to have different aliens appearing in different sizes + speeds at random locations on the screen. Can't wait to play Explore Space V2!

A fun game! I love the alien design and color. I love the interaction in the game and sound effects. Well done!

The graphics and sound effects are great! I might suggest a timer or a score board is incorporated so the user knows where they stand. Maybe there are different aliens as well that make an appearance? Fun idea, I hope you continue to develop it!
