Create Four Mobile Ready Games:
For your first game, you’ll create one of the most popular games in the world. Similar to pinball with no paddles, the player drops a ball through a series of pegs to score points at the bottom of the screen.
The second game you’ll create would be at home in any video arcade from the 80’s! Fly over an alien landscape blasting all oncoming aliens out of the sky or be blasted yourself.
For your third game, you’ll build a multi-level physics puzzle game. The player has to eliminate all the boxes from each level while leaving the “special” box in place.
The final game you’ll learn to create fast-paced endless runner where the player has to jump a flipping rectangle through an oncoming barrage of obstacles.
