Day One - Off To A Fair Start
Lots happening today but a few hours were available for PyWeek. Yay! I worked on getting the structure and basic game mechanic together. The goal is achievable - I may have to finish Friday being realistic. Trying to keep the code very organised and componentised. Definitely want to add gamepad support.
The theme lends itself well to a defending type game so I combined this with the old arcade game Space Zap which is a reaction/timing game at its core. I had decided to make all GFX with primitives as my mouse is currently broken and this fits my desired look anyway. I plonked a pygame.draw.circle in the middle of the screen. Once it fired a few lasers I immediately thought..... DEATH STAR! Going to have fun with this now!
