I’ve been continuing to explore Arcade and have made a second game - Space Guardians. The original code came from the tutorial Galga but I added some of my own modifications including a range of enemies including large enemies that you have to hit 10 times to destroy them and cloaked ships that you have to dodge as you can’t destroy them. I’ve also added two reward sprites that give your score a boost or reset your lives but they can appear at any time anywhere on the screen. I would recommend playing with the sound off as I got carried away with the sound effects.
Any feedback would be really appreciated.
Also I’ve introduced arcade to my class as part of our lockdown computing lessons and they are really excited. We are learning how to code the Galga games tomorrow using the Tutorial.
