Kaboom Jam submission
Profile icon
tankerguy1917

This is my submission for the Kaboom Jam. I wanted to use Kaboom, but with school, life and other things, I didn't have much time, so I used Pygame. I also got a bad case of scope creep, I had to take out some things that weren't working like they should have.

About

You are a spaceship trying to stop as many alien invaders as you can.

Controls

Use the arrow keys to move and make sure you take advantage of the fact yo can move left to right and space to shoot.

I used [Lospec pixel editor] (https://lospec.com/pixel-editor/app) as well as a palette from Lospec called [pirates adventure] (https://lospec.com/palette-list/pirates-adventure) to make all the graphics.

Cool! I especially like the art, Though I do suggest that you put .convert() at the end of your pygame.image.load() functions, it makes the image work better and faster in pygame.

alternate title: spam space and keep going up and down

@rubpec2 Haha. Yeah, when I made the title, you were going to have limited ammo, so I thought that Just Right would be fitting, but then I wasn't able to get somethings working, and it would have been a lot more work to make a new name picture thing.

Awesome game, but isn’t this Pygame?

@98129182 You didn't have to use Kaboom, but they wanted people to use it. I didn't have enough time to learn JavaScript or Kaboom, so I used Pygame.

weird. IS it just me or does arrow keys not work

It's great!

Only thing is, it is a bit easy, since the bullet can hit multiple enemies. You should have made it destroy the bullet on impact

@NotMrMan I tried that, but it would sometimes say that "couldn't remove x from LISTNAME.remove[x]" or whatever the error was. Basically, when it tried to despawn the bullet, it was already despawned, so it got really confused, but thanks for the suggestion. Oh, and i tried to add levels and a boss, but they didn't work out and so I took them out, for now at least.

@tankerguy1917 Use

try: LISTNAME.pop(x) except: pass

probably a bad practice but eh.

@gearDev Ok. Thanks for the suggestion!

@RayhanADev Thanks. Good luck to you too. I like your submission too. I think the fact that you can heal by blocking the enemies attack is a cool idea.
