Day 1 - Having FunThe last PyWeek was a bit of a drag as I was under the weather so I have been trying to make this one as relaxed and fun as possible. Delighted to say it has been on day one!
I got up, anxious to see the chosen topic and was very surprised to see Nemesis being the chosen theme. After a bit of thinking and Googling I settled on making my own homage to the game Nemesis - an early 90's horizontal scroller. Luckily I have this cart and popped it into my GBA for some 'research'.
First coding step was a simple menu using SGC. Then a simple skeleton for the game and levels. Bit by bit I got a ship on screen and made it flyable. Made a ZAP sound effect too and a bad guy. Little bit of work on the background too. No high innovation just relaxing and enjoying aspects of game writing I usually neglect e.g. sound and GFX.
Development is on a slow little netbook (want this to run on a RaspPi too eventually). I am using Lubuntu, Python 2, Pinta and learning to use GIT. Code is online at
Anyway here's a screenshot:
