Asteroids, Episode 1: USS Turtle

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!

In this episode, you’ll design and create your own video game spaceship - the USS Turtle. You’ll also prep the spaceship to navigate the asteroid belt by coding it to rotate based on player commands. Finally, just for fun, you’ll pick the best paint job for USS Turtle to begin its mission!
