Project Process

This project was made to simulate an arcade shooter game. The user uses a spaceship to navigate through an asteroid field; the user has three lives, and if their ship is hit by an asteroid their lives is decreased by one. The user is also able to shoot the asteroids — hitting the asteroids a certain amount of times will destroy the asteroid. The game displays the number of points the user has left and the number of lives remaining. SVG animations were used to create the explosives.
