Lachlan's Continued Adventures into C++ #2 - Space Invaders

4/10/2011 05:11:00 pm Posted by Lachlan No comments

I've started continuing my adventures into C++. Working on the few assets to make a Space Invaders derivative game: 'The Night The Martians Came'.

Space Invaders will teach me more about class design in C++. The use of different levels will increase my knowledge of State Machines. The invaders will teach me about some basic interacting AIs. The whole thing will simply help my C++.

Goal to finish: 1 Month, hopefully less.

Features to implement:
- A few different weapons
- Space invaders style game play
- A few different levels
- Some chinglish style cutscenes (Meaning probably a picture with a caption)
- Sound

We'll see how it develops soon. I'm working my way to make the games I actually want to - but I'm in a new language, and I've got bad programming habits. So walking, and then jogging before I sprint sounds like a pretty good plan.
