Stage I: Create the Basic Game¶
In this stage, we will create the basic Wall Ball game in three steps. This basic game won’t offer a lot of challenge to the player, but it will work and it won’t take you long to get there!
In subsequent steps we’ll add some more sophisticated elements.
- Step 0: Create an empty game
- Step 1: Bounce a ball around the screen
- Step 2: Make the ball bounce off the bat
- Step 3: Add bricks for the ball to knock out
- Change it all around
- Have several layers of bricks
- Give each side wall a bat
- Have more than one ball
- Have two bats along the bottom
- Have different kinds of bricks
- Switch around the direction of play
- Have the ball bounce differently from the left or right side of the bat
- Have the ball bounce according to how far along the bat it hits
