Lesson Plan

What does it comprise of? Let's also go through debugging codes for games

Get introduced to Space Invaders. What are the elements required in space invaders? Let's look at the different versions of the same game!

We look at stationary alien spaceships and the winning / losing conditions

We look at swaying alien spaceships (left and right) and the winning / losing conditions

We look at homing alien spaceships (moving towards you) and the winning / losing conditions

Now, let's merge the different styles of Space Invaders together, and learn how are different game modes packaged into 1

We're going to introduce the concept of gravity in to your game, advanced variables such as Random Number Generator (RNG)

We'll work on a platforming game and a side-scroller game

Yay, now we design the initial concept of your game based on 5 elements of Game Theory

Start initial development of the basics of your game and conduct Alpha testing

Beta testing and improvement of the game and present your game!

We end the course with a re-cap on growth mindset, stress management and leveraging your strengths

Mastery Projects
