Y8 Computing Students recreate Space Invaders
What have they done?
During the course of the lessons students have learnt how to make a sprite (or graphic) move across the screen, how to have the bad guys move across the top and also how to shoot the bad guys.
What did they learn?
To do this, students have had to learn to code the instructions themselves, understand x and y positions of sprites and create interaction between the sprites representing the ‘bullets’ and the bad guys. Sam Sperring also managed to ensure his game has a score to keep tally of how many bad guys have been shot. Have a look at their work in the gallery below
Well done all!
What happens next?
These groups will add to their games, adding a variable to hold their score, making the game more difficult as time goes on and anything else they wish to add.
