Book Description

Launch into coding with Mission Python, a space-themed guide to building a complete computer game in Python. You’ll learn programming fundamentals like loops, strings, and lists as you build Escape!, an exciting game with a map to explore, items to collect, and tricky logic puzzles to solve. As you work through the book, you’ll build exercises and mini-projects, like making a spacewalk simulator and creating an astronaut’s safety checklist that will put your new Python skills to the test. You’ll learn how to use Pygame Zero, a free resource that lets you add graphics and sound effects to your creations, and you’ll get useful game-making tips, such as how to design fun puzzles and intriguing maps. Before you know it, you’ll have a working, awesome game to stump your friends with (and some nifty coding skills, too!). You can follow this book using a Raspberry Pi or a Microsoft Windows PC, and the 3D graphics and sound effects you need are provided as a download.
