Pew! Pew!

I’ve really been enjoying noodling about learning HTML5 Canvas and JavaScript and whatnot, I have plans!

A couple of weeks ago I started running Computer Club at the school I teach at. Last week we started playing around with a space shooter akin to Xenon 2* and its ilk.

The code is available on GitHub and you can also Play the Game.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The graphics are intentionally crappy! The idea was to offend the kids’ sensibilities so much that they made their own art!! (The game is rubbish because making games is hard)

* Cute fact, my brother and I called this “Exanon” for far longer than either of us care to admit when we were kids.
