Instructor: Rebecca | Difficulty: Advanced | Series: Asteroids
The starship USS Turtle is on a mission deep in an asteroid belt, trailblazing a safe path for its fleet to follow. In this series, you’ll learn how to build an asteroids-style game from the ground up, designing the spaceship, its motion controls, laser defenses, and asteroid-rich environment. Can your very own USS Turtle clear the asteroid belt? Let’s find out!
Does an asteroid belt-clearing spaceship need lasers? Yes, it does! In this episode, you create laser defenses for your USS Turtle spaceship, and design mechanisms that allow the lasers to charge, fire, and travel. You’ll also program your spaceship to be able to shoot and aim so that you can take on all the asteroids the belt holds. Time to get those lasers charged and ready!
